“Collective memory and intergenerational connection are the healing antidote to the forces of capitalism, White supremacy, and heteropatriarchy that aim to keep us too busy and downtrodden to see our own capacity to upend systems that work for only a very few. Just as I learned about my grandmother’s memories and ways of navigating oppression, so too does learning the ways of life of our queer and trans ancestors offer us a way to radically alter the material conditions which govern our lives and limit us.”
According to a popular study, 95% of adolescents own a cell phone and 45% are online almost constantly. When Cellphones Come To School, a new very timely, informative and provocative one hour documentary from high school teacher and EdD Leadership Program alumni Anne Tran, shows what happens when these phones predictably end up in classrooms and the impact on learning that results. Featuring interviews with a diverse range of students, teachers and experts, When Cellphones Come To School, highlights both positive and negative outcomes and points the way toward creating a better understanding of the national debate around the role cellphones might and do play in classroom education settings.
SJSU Lurie College of Education undergraduate, graduate, credential, and doctoral students can enter your name for a chance to join Dean Heather Lattimer and a group of students for great conversation and a complimentary meal each month during the academic year!

Those who are selected to dine with the dean will receive an email notification approximately 1 week before each meal if once they’ve been randomly selected. Those who aren’t selected for a meal are still eligible to be selected for a future meal. Lurie College students are only eligible to enter their information once and attend at most one meal per academic year.

Associate Dean Marcos Pizarro was recently featured in the SJSU Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’s (ODEI) Good Trouble series, which features stories of activism and necessary trouble from Bay Area Leaders. In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month – Sep. 15-Oct. 15th, this episode featured the experiences, stories, and wisdom of SJSU Chicanx/Latinx staff, faculty, and administrators on our campus: Magdalena Barrera, Marcos Pizzaro, Fernanda Perdomo-Arciniegas, Lilly Pinedo Gangai, and Ana Navarrete.
As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, our SJSU Lurie College of Education is positioned to lead. Our faculty, staff, and students have done remarkable work during this past year. We’ve grown enrollments in our traditional programs and launched exciting new programs that extend our reach to new student populations. We’ve strengthened our commitment to educational equity and racial justice by investing resources in bold emancipatory initiatives and tackling structural challenges within the college. We’ve amplified the impact of faculty-led research by strengthening our community partnerships and growing our media engagement. These achievements position Lurie College to lead our regional P-20 educational ecosystem and to be a model nationally of what it means to be a truly transformative college of education.

“Initially, she was shocked. She expressed her excruciating pain and disappointment toward me and herself, thinking that she wasn’t a “good” Asian mother. She became silent for a while; years went by. Then she slowly opened up, started asking me questions, listening to my stories, and meeting my partner. She ultimately replaced her feelings of shame and guilt with deeper understanding and love.”

College students over the age of 25 are often overlooked in efforts to increase student success. Yet, adult learners make up over one-third of all undergraduate students. Adult learners have distinct challenges when pursuing their education. In addition to balancing coursework with jobs, many adult learners have family responsibilities/roles and other layers that make up who they are as a student. Watch the recording of our Lurie College Student Success Center’s workshop “Thriving at SJSU as an Adult Learner: Part 1” which focused on navigating the 4-year system. Register for more upcoming workshops at sjsu.edu/luriessc/student-resources-workshops
Congratulations to Communicative Disorders & Sciences faculty Nidhi Mahendra, who was the guest editor for and published “Racism, Equity and Inclusion in Communication Sciences and Disorders: Reflections and the Road Ahead” in Teaching and Learning in Communication Sciences & Disorders: Beyond Cultural Competence: Addressing Racism, Equity and Inclusion! The article introduces this timely special issue on Beyond Cultural Competence: Addressing racism, equity and inclusion, and provides information on how this issue was conceptualized. The editors reflect on the critical importance of equity and inclusion work in speech-language pathology and audiology in order to address structural racism and inequities for diverse students and professionals. It concludes by offering insights about the emerging levels of evidence as well as a call to action for continued engagement and expanded scholarship of teaching and learning research on these topics.
Parents should also realize that it’s not a fair fight. Social media apps like Instagram are designed to be addictive, says Roxana Marachi, a professor of education at San Jose State University who studies data harms. Without new laws that regulate how tech companies use our data and algorithms to push users toward harmful content, there is only so much parents can do, Marachi said.
“The companies are not interested in children’s well being, they’re interested in eyes on the screen and maximizing the number of clicks.” Marachi said. “Period.”
Congratulations to Counselor Education faculty Kyoung Mi Choi, who copublished “A phenomenological approach to understanding sexual minority college students in South Korea” in the Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development! Dr. Choi and Dr. Insoo Oh used a phenomenological approach to explore 12 sexual minority Korean college students’ coming out experiences. They found four themes from in-depth interviews, including (a) expression of universal needs, (b) awareness of sociocultural violence, (c) coping strategies, and (d) cocreating an inclusive culture. They characterize interactions of sociocultural factors, such as gender norms, sexual prejudice, and education with sexual identity development. Findings provide an understanding of the importance of developing effective and empowering strategies for counseling.
ESAN creates an interdisciplinary network of current San José State University students interested in working with young children with alumni currently in the field. The group is intended to respond to the needs of students, with activities based on student interest. This hub of student activity may engage in a variety of professional development activities under the guidance of a faculty advisor. For example, students may be interested in learning more about professional practices across the field to inform their knowledge and interaction with young children. This group may also engage in career exploration, with alumni returning to share insights from their own professional paths.
