Create a multimedia-based intervention for Latinx families experiencing separation and divorce.
A lack of Internet service in many of the families' homes made it difficult for participants to access the course and for researchers to retrieve user data.
Mis Hijos y Yo, a culturally relevant parenting education e-learning course that is delivered preloaded on a mobile tablet. The tablet stores usage data locally and uses a SIM card to push information to the Learning Record Store when an Internet connection is available.
The efficacy of the Mis Hijos y Yo program is being tested in a randomized controlled trial funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. Tablets are being distributed to Latinx parents from the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Colombia. More than 45,000 xAPI statements containing survey answers, knowledge check scores, and usage data have been collected. We expect that number to exceed 100,000 by the end of the study.
Mis Hijos Y Yo was developed through support from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number R44MD008583.
