I’ll be lending a hand this Wednesday evening in Seeking Equity in Connected Learning and Teaching, a new online course at Arcadia University in Philadelphia. Christina Cantrill, a Writing Project colleague of mine, teaches the course and asked me to lead a Twitter chat about the equity considerations in educational technology. For many of her students this will be their first Twitter chat. I'm reaching out to you because Christina thought it would be great if a few “outsiders” popped into the chat to illustrate Twitter’s power to extend the reach of a class conversation. If you’re free on Wednesday night from 6:15 - 7:00, you might be interested to sign on to the hashtag #techquity for a few minutes. We’ll be using a protocol called Believing and Doubting for the chat to consider some of the issues raised in some online texts about the topic. If anyone's interested, I can share the plans as I develop them.
