As promised here is the 3rd podcast in a series of 4 from my NAEHCY conference keynote. This one relates my experiences after high school and into adulthood. Embedded are many stories and a theoretical justification about why we should use technology and inquiry driven approaches when working with high poverty populations. Specific examples of how I used technology at W.T. Cooke Elementary school (a Title One school with a high percentage of homeless students) are shared.
I also share ways to help children and adults experiencing poverty escape and begin to develop a skill set that will enable them to break the cycles they find themselves in.
