Discussing Identity, Power, And Privilege Through Poll Everywhere
Concurrent Session 5
Identity, power, and privilege are increasingly becoming topics and aspects of teaching and learning that educators are both interested in and struggle with. At "identity"-themed workshops, it is not uncommon to engage in activities that ask participants to think about various aspects of their identities, consider their own privilege, and understand the nuanced power dynamics at play in learning environments. They typically involve physical movement, hand-written / typed paper-based activities, or other activities based in physical modalities. But how do we do this in digital spaces? In this Tech in the Spotlight session, we will engage in conversations about the importance of considering identity, privilege, and power and you will be challenged to think of ways in which you can use polling apps like Poll Everywhere to engage students and colleagues alike in identity work.
