Hey there! I'm Earl Aguilera, a Ph. D. candidate in the Learning, Literacies, and Technology program at Arizona State University.
In my research, I focus on understanding the role that literacy plays for students learning in digital-age environments. In my teaching, I work to support teachers across all content areas focusing on adolescent literacy development.
As a graduate research assistant in the Center for Games and Impact, I also work to develop innovations that teachers, librarians, parents, and researchers can use to better support students in their digital-age literacy development. I’ve worked with out team on projects related to digital literacies, game-based learning, and teacher education.
