Tech Activist: Superhero-in-Training

We live in a world with a lot of problems, but we also live in a time with powerful technology tools to help us create solutions. As technology educators, we possess a superpower, the ability to inspire the next generation in technology. And in the words of Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben, with “great power comes great responsibility”. How do we super empower students and teachers to tackle these real-world problems and wield their technology powers for good? I’ll share some things I’ve learned as a superhero-in-training working with students at St. Anne’s-Belfield school, Tech-Girls and beyond.
