Abstract: The ISLS theme addresses “global perspectives on equity and justice that promote the empowerment of educational innovation for all.” We report on a large virtual convening (n=310), where learning scientists, computer scientists, and educators in one country considered how research should change to address equity and justice. We report on the output of working group strategy sessions and a culminating discussion that elicited “bold steps” for change. Our analysis of bold steps submitted by eleven teams led to re-grouping by the actors involved: (1) researchers, (2) partnerships, (3) technology design, and (4) community values should each change. For each group, we report key themes. We note limitations and broader implications (e.g., what a shift to language about “empowering” implies). Conducting similar meetings in other regions and reporting complementary outcomes could be powerful.
