The Center for Collaborative Arts and Media is hosting a “TECHNOLOGY & SOCIAL JUSTICE SERIES” of virtual conversations presented in 4 parts featuring technologists, policy-makers, artists, educators, and other experts of their fields. Each monthly discussion invites new voices and practitioners to reflect upon modern advocacy and the potential to utilize technology to make a difference. “Technology & Social Justice” aims to investigate the impact of innovation upon our communities, and take a closer look at both the present and future prospects for social change.
In PART 1: The Digital Divide / Equality for Education, the series invites the Yale community and the general public to an urgent conversation about virtual learning and its unexpected toll upon our school systems as they grapple to maintain equal opportunity for students in the wake of COVID. Teachers, parents, IT specialists, and policy-makers confront the responsibility for equitable resources to serve our schools.
