The researchers conducted an analytical review on the Technology Supported Learning Environment (TLSE) EdHeads, specifically the Sickle Cell DNA course. This interactive tool was designed to motivate students to study STEM based curriculums and connect their lessons to actual careers. Using the Learning Affordance Design Criteria (LADC) scale, an analysis of the TSLE revealed that the Sickle Cell DNA course supported Engage-ability and Experiential Learning at a high rate. Personalization, Assessment, and Learning Community were not supported according to our scale, but reasons for why these factors may not have been included are explored.
