Victoria Thompson presents: Equity in Educational Technology

In education we need to be committed to ensuring our efforts reflect the needs of our classrooms and schools, as well as equity and inclusion. But, where do we begin? And, how can we leverage technology to reach our goals? Attendees will learn about the intersectionality of equity and educational technology. New ideas and strategies that attendees will learn include the importance of using technology to elevate instruction, implementing educational technology into curriculum with an equitable lens, vetting digital platforms and resources with colleagues, what an educator should look for when searching for technology and technology platforms, and the potential dangers of not checking a resource before you give it to students. Come learn (and collaborate!) with us during this session.
