The purpose of this paper is to highlight the potential of digital tools to address the significant challenge of increasing access to college and outline challenges and opportunities in effectively implementing a digital intervention across an entire school.
The study encompasses a randomized control trial and comparative case studies. This paper highlights qualitative data focused on implementation.
Findings illustrate impediments and strategies for implementing a school-wide digital intervention.
Research focused on one particular intervention and is thus limited in scope.
The study has the potential to assist practitioners in better serving students from low-income and minoritized communities through digital tools.
The study has implications for increasing the number of first-generation and minoritized youth who apply to and enroll in college. The study highlights digital equity issues often overlooked in ed-tech sectors.
Few studies exist that examine the implementation of digital interventions at the school level. Focusing on digital equity in the college access space (academic and practice) is novel.
