Strunk, Kamden K.; Andrzejewski, Carey E. – Educational Psychologist, 2023
Educational psychology as a field and area of inquiry has gone underexamined in terms of its role in and contributions to racism and antiblackness. We position educational psychology as a racialized organization relative to the institution of education, a widely recognized site of institutionalized racism. We, therefore, explore the role the…

Kaplan, Avi – Educational Psychologist, 2023
As a community of practice, educational psychologists are unpracticed in considering how educational policies might affect the phenomena they study.

López, Francesca – Educational Psychologist, 2022
As the American Psychological Association and Division 15 committed to addressing systemic racism after the 2020 summer of racial reckoning, orchestrated political attacks that vilify pedagogical approaches aimed at addressing racial injustice have thwarted schools' efforts across the nation.

Tate, Tamara; Warschauer, Mark – Educational Psychologist, 2022
Online learning outcomes have indicated both a gap between online and face-to-face learning and the amplification of this gap for low-income and minority learners.

Hickey, Daniel T. – Educational Psychologist, 2022
The articles in this special issue on Improving Online Learning Theory, Research, and Practice characterize online learning using a set of "diverse lenses."

Kuhn, Deanna – Educational Psychologist, 2022
The construct of metacognition appears in an ever increasing number and range of contexts in educational, developmental, and cognitive psychology. Can it retain its status as a useful construct in the face of such diverse application? Or is it merely an umbrella term for diverse mental phenomena that are loosely if at all connected? Here I argue…
