Search Brokering in English Language Learning Families

Lead: Wendy Roldan

Through in-home visits, this research explores how children of Latino American English language learning families are searching, translating, and brokering online information. Our collaborators include Dr. Carmen Gonzalez and Dr. Laura Pina. This work was previously funded by a Google Faculty Research Award and Dr. Yip was recently awarded a National Science Foundation CAREER grant to continue this work. Research findings have been published in Computer Supported Collaborative Work (2018), Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (2019), and Connected Learning Summit (2019).
