Alice Kaiser


Alice Kaiser assists researchers in diverse areas, from coding and data entry to site observations and parent interviews. Her primary interests involve dual-language learners and ways to bridge gaps and provide supports for speakers of different languages.

Alice joined CCT in 2017 to assist with the Advancing of Dual Language Learners Learning with Educational Technology project, which involved developing documents to be used by preschool teachers to target best practices for supporting young emergent bilinguals and the developmentally appropriate use of technology in the classroom. Since then, Alice has worked on a variety of projects, lending support as needed. She is currently staffed on Ready To Learn, an initiative supported by the U.S. Department of Education and led by PBS and CPB, that targets the use of media resources to improve low-income preschool children’s school readiness. She also works on the Mission USproject, which investigates the efficacy of a set of immersive online role-playing games on middle- and high-school students’learning of history; this project is funded by the Institute of Education Sciences.

Alice holds a BA in Russian from Willamette University. Prior to joining CCT, she worked at The School at Columbia University as an after-school teacher, as well as an assistant to the Child Study Team. This role involved helping educational psychologists in pre-school admission screenings and adolescent learning support. She also served as a consultant for Acelero Learning, conducting an annual assessment of Head Start programs. Earlier, she worked as a research assistant on the Understanding Autism Project at Columbia University’s Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy.
