Session Description:Frequently, we believe giving all students access to technology and the Internet is enough to overcome issues of inequity in education. Without a strong focus on equity, edtech can often unintentionally widen this gap. This talk will serve as a call to action for educators who care deeply about equity in their classrooms. Educators will have the opportunity to reflect on the intentional planning and culturally responsive instructional practices that must be in place to ensure all students are supported by tech initiatives. Mattea Garcia will share from her experiences as an educator and a digital coach in Denver high schools.

Why is this story so important to tell in the Ignite format?Ignite talks often serve as a great platform for inspirational talks. Since the theme of this presentation is very motivational in nature, using a format that focuses on engaging presentations is necessary for effective delivery of the message. I do not believe that this message needs to be long in order to have an impact. I also feel like I am able to do an excellent job presenting on issues I am passionate about in this format.
