Abstract

Technology-pervasive information environments of the 21st century raise important questions regarding student learning preference, the match between learners and learning methods. A study of STEM career interest and preference for learning with technology was conducted at a predominantly African American school district in Louisiana, USA. Fifty percent of the n=88 student participants expressed interest in seeking a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) related career. Research questions focused on deepening the understanding of student learning preference and the relationship between career goals and learning preference. Significant differences in learning preference and technology affinity were found among students with a STEM career goal.
