About this Learning Opportunity

What does technology look like from an Indigenous perspective? What elements of Western technological development align with Indigenous worldview, and what elements do not align? Technologies are the result of our understanding of nature put into action – so how does technology look from an Indigenous epistemology? In this 90-minute webinar, you’ll explore these questions and discover how to incorporate Indigenous perspectives as you teach science, mathematics, coding, and other digital skills.
