What strikes me the most about this research article is NOT the power of “asset-based instruction” (that focuses on a student’s strengths rather than their deficiencies) but rather than this is not just a big problem in edtech applications but also in the education at large. We spend so many words and so much funding trying to close “learning gaps” and that kind of language must have a negative effect on students.
