About the Author

Na’ilah Suad Nasir is Associate Professor of Education and African-American Studies at the University of California at Berkeley. As co-director of Research in Cognition and Mathematics Education (RCME), her research centers on how issues of culture and race influence the learning, achievement, and educational trajectories of African-American and other minority students in urban school and community settings.

Carol D. Lee is Professor of Education and Social Policy, Learning Sciences, and African American Studies at Northwestern University. She has developed a theory of cultural modelling that provides a framework for the design and enactment of curriculum that draws on forms of prior knowledge that traditionally underserved students bring to classrooms.

Roy Pea is Professor of Learning Sciences and Education at Stanford University, where he also co-directs the Human Sciences & Technologies Advanced Research Institute (H-STAR Institute). His research focuses on how innovations in computing and communications technology can influence learning, thinking, collaboration, and educational systems.
