2019 Psychology Alum and Dr. Mehruz Kamal (Computing Sciences) present Research at Information Systems Conference
Diksha Diksha (2019 alum) & Dr. Mehruz Kamal presented their research titled, "Investigating ICTs for Education in Marginalized Communities" at the Midwest Association for Information Systems Conference in Oshkosh, WI on May 2`1.
The Agenda for Sustainable Development is a universal agenda to eliminate poverty through sustainable development by 2030. When it was adopted in 2015, the international community recognized that education was essential for the success of all seventeen of its goals. Ambitions for education are captured in Sustainable Development Goal 4, which aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” The United Nations has explicitly stated the importance of using ICTs in achieving educational opportunities. Since then, very few studies have tackled the issue. The findings so far, do not provide detailed guidance on the impact of ICTs in this domain. The purpose of this study is to contribute to this gap by integrating research in the fields of Information Systems, Development studies, and Psychology to understand the factors for facilitating educational objectives through ICTs within marginalized communities
