MET Anti-Racism Talk: Anti-Asian Racism: Roots, Impacts, and the Role of Educational Technology

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

“Anti-Asian Racism: Roots, Impacts, and the Role of Educational Technology”

Overview: In this talk, I will highlight several important aspects of anti-Asian racism in Canada. First, I will discuss the intersectionality of global and local factors underlying the hate and discrimination Asian Canadian’s experiences in their everyday life. These include the historical and ongoing impacts of settler colonialism and the limitations of Canadian multiculturalism. Second, I will share my research on how the rise of anti-Asian racism has affected Asians and how Asians have experienced anti-Asian racism differently. I will outline several individual-level and contextual factors that shape Asians differential experiences. Finally, I will also discuss the role of education and the inclusion of educational technology in our fight against all forms of racism. In particular, how we can create an anti-racist classroom and how educators can help address and eradicate racism, and how can digital tools and educational technology help to redefine learning as we know it.
