Naomi Hupert, a senior research scientist and expert in literacy and digital learning, co-leads the Center for Children & Technology at EDC. Her research interests include educational media, early childhood education, K–12 literacy, and STEM education. Across all disciplines, she seeks to deepen understanding of how digital resources can support students, families, and the educators and institutions that serve them.
Drawing on her expertise in quantitative and qualitative research and formative and summative program evaluation, Hupert provides usable, real-time findings to teachers, leaders, and policymakers working to improve students’ outcomes. She has advanced the field’s knowledge of technology in early STEM learning, the impact of transmedia learning, and the effective use of digital tools in science, mathematics, and literacy education.
Hupert has a special focus on equity. She seeks to identify strategies to support the success of young people who struggle because of inadequate access to quality instruction, low-resourced schools, disabilities, or other challenges.
Hupert holds an MSEd, with a specialization in Literacy and Language-Related Learning Disabilities, from the Bank Street College of Education.
