MET Anti-Racism Talk: Systemic Racism and Future-Ready Technologies: How to ensure educational technology does not contribute to techno-racism

This talk is part of UBC MET ‘s Anti-Racism in the EdTechnosphere Talk Series:

“Systemic Racism and Future-Ready Technologies: How to ensure educational technology does not contribute to techno-racism”

Overview: So, you think you are a Future-Ready educator – but are you EDIDAA Future-Ready?

Being a EDIDAA Future Ready educator means taking precautions to ensure that cutting-edge educational technologies do not contribute to systematic racism but instead foster equity, diversity, inclusion, decolonization, anti-racism, and accessibility. Creating an inclusive future that eliminates systemic racism requires educators to understand how biases, prejudices, and ignorance can be coded into technology and seep into your classroom. This session will prepare you to be on the lookout for techno-racism and use tools that foster inclusivity so that you can be EDIDAA future-ready.
