My interest in this project is two-fold: first, I am interested in more human-centered technological practices in education, a goal often touted in educational technology but rarely taken seriously. Second, I study design as a practice of making education and educational technology more human-focused, and am interested in studying the Careers in Play team as a case of educational technology practice.
