A critical topic for schools, communities, and most importantly, our students, is what teachers do in the classroom to nurture ALL students, create a sense of belonging, and keep educational standards high. Only then can students, especially immigrant students and students of color, meet their potential and succeed in school and beyond. During a recent edWebinar, the presenters underscored that when schools make generalizations about particular student populations and their behavior, they strip them of their individuality, and these students become “invisible.”
The edWebinar will highlight how individual steps can be taken towards finding agency, racial identity validation, and community.
This edWebinar will discuss the trends and challenges facing the field of education technology and its impacts on inclusion and for students with disabilities including autism.
