Formal.. Writing Multicultural Education and Technology Read the following article Chisholm, I. M., & Wetzel, K. (2001). Technology and multiculturalism in the classroom: Case studies in attitudes and motivations. Journal of Research on Computing in Education, 33(5), 1-33. In this article the authors reference an earlier publication by one of the co-authors, Chisholm (1998), where she identified six culturally supportive teaching elements for technology integration: • Cultural awareness is an acknowledgement of cultural and individual differences through implementation of instructional and learning activities that support varied learning preferences, multiple intelligences, and native languages. • Cultural relevance is achieved through culturally congruent and culturally relevant learning activities. • Culturally supportive environments are safe and inclusive and integrate the learner’s culture, family, and community. • Equitable access provides learners with access to technology in ways that best meets their needs. • Instructional flexibility is the use of varied modes of delivery and assessment that harmonize with the learners’ strengths and preferences. • Instructional integration is an acknowledgement of technology as an essential tool for learning and teaching. (p. 3) Create a webquest using the free webquest maker available from www.zunal.com. Create a brief lesson that you feel does a good job using “culturally supportive” elements as identified by Chrisholm (1998). I recommend you view a few examples before you create your own. On your “Teacher Page” tab for your webquest, please include a brief explanation for why you believe your lesson is culturally relevant and increases awareness. Be sure to publish your webquest (otherwise I cannot view) and submit your “public” URL for grading. References Chisholm, I. M. (1998).
