Design = Equity in EdTech
All students deserve the very best from their digital learning experience. Access to technology is important, but not enough. Truly equitable learning products grow from an empathic design approach that considers the whole student. We create products with disadvantaged students in mind, with varied cultural backgrounds, accessibility needs and academic levels. I will discuss our work with the Boys & Girls Clubs and others to create digital resources that are equitable for all learners.
