This case study proposal outlines the case of remote learning tools as a social research and design project, providing the background, rationale, and suggesting a research plan. COVID-19 has triggered an unprecedented shift in the field of secondary education. In response to the pandemic, schools across the United States have transitioned to remote learning. Fortunately (or perhaps unfortunately), learning management services exist to facilitate this shift to distance education. School districts are utilizing tools such as Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate, Canvas Instructure, Google Classroom, and others to deliver lessons, activities, and substitute the in-person education that many students previously received. The critical question is whether these tools effectively replace the educational services that were offered before. In this research project, I assess the efficacy of these remote learning tools, examine their contribution to educational inequalities, and propose solutions to address these disparities in order to better serve students.
