Perspectives on the Digital Divide and Global Citizenship
Tuesday, May 26th
12:00 PM EST
This webinar explores three related sets of issues of great significance for our field during the 21st century. Professor Subramony will explore equitable access to the emancipatory potential of educational and communications technologies (ECT) and the social and cultural impact of ECT adoption and use upon diverse stakeholder groups across the nation and the globe. Mr. Heggart will focus in on a global citizenship program, Justice Citizens, that sought to develop active citizenship amongst high school students via the use of critical pedagogy and technology rich environments. This program facilitated participants’ ability to develop social and professional networks as well as a range of technology related skills related to global citizenship.
