Designing EdTech for Culture, Identity, & Belonging


The K-12 student population in the U.S. is growing more diverse every day. Products that are reflective of our dynamically changing student body will shape the future of teaching and learning. However, many curriculum and product developers have limited experience designing solutions for historically and systematically excluded students. Join this workshop-style session to learn about practices of inclusive innovation and dimensions of equity that can help you design learning experiences that enable all students to feel seen, heard, and valued.
