Kevin and Gerardo sit down with three Denver-area high school students to get their take on Remote Learning in spring 2020. In all the discussions and meetings over remote learning in this time of COVIS-19, it is striking to us how little student voice has been a part of planning for this, perhaps the most significant moment since the advent of compulsory education. For all our talk about cultural responsiveness and student voice in schools, we have continued the trend of ignoring those values when it matters most, leaving our young leaders and scholars bewildered, lost, and losing confidence in their own role in schools. A warning: their words are convicting, and indict all of us.
Month: April 2020
Kevin and Gerardo are back on a Sunday evening, discussing the important and persistent equity questions that have exacerbated since the shutdown of school buildings. We challenge those emerging #digitalequitywarriors who will invariably jump into the spotlight, though many have tuned out the equity conversation for years. We share our experiences, our fave digital teaching tools, and list our 4 no-skip albums. Shoutout to @JenntheTutor and @JessycaMathews for contributing to this episode!
