Techquity: Creating Learning Environments For Sustainability, Equity, and Access
11:00am - 12:15pm EST
Grab a warm drink and join Let's Talk Science for our free Coffee and Keynote professional learning series for Canadian educators every Saturday in March. Join us as we welcome Kenneth Shelton for his keynote, Techquity: Creating Learning Environments For Sustainability, Equity, and Access.
This interactive keynote will address how to navigate one of the biggest challenges educators face today — providing students with equitable and culturally inclusive learning opportunities. This talk will include a detailed analysis on the varying levels of culture, addressing our social-emotional needs, and why we must ensure our students are provided a diverse and equitable educational experience. Further expanding on the primary purpose will be a look at how technology serves as both a needed and critical component to that end. Embedded within the keynote are personal narratives aligned with the central theme of incorporating both a culturally relevant and culturally responsive pedagogy to any content area.
The presentation will be approximately 40 minutes, followed by a 30 minute Q&A hosted by Dr. Alec Couros.
