Pride and Prejudice: How can ICT intervention reduce bias, stigmas and ethnic prejudice among prospective teachers?
Thursday, March 6 3:45 PM-4:45 PM Location: Royale 2
Abstract: An online interactive presentation: Many people have views and opinions on other ethnic groups which are tainted by stigmas, biases and prejudices. In parts of the globe, this bias then develops to fear and hatred of those ethnic groups. Is it the role of a teaching college to reduce these biases among pre-service teachers? Can ICT help to improve understanding among students? Can attitudes be changed through online collaboration? In this presentation you will have the opportunity to interact through your laptops with presenters and students in Israel studying and teaching in a multi-cultural on line project.
