“What effect has the increasing use of technology had on Indigenous education and the passing on of knowledge from one generation to the next? Technological advances in education can often cut both ways, especially when we move beyond pedagogical issues and think about the cultural issues that they bring up.
In this week’s episode, Dave talks to Dr. Michael Marker about this subject. Michael talks about exploring the ethnohistory of Aboriginal Education, his long path toward helping to bring these issues forward and address them, as well as the importance of media engagement for Indigenous peoples. He also discusses his course in the MET program, ETEC 521 (Indigeneity, Technology, and Education) and the importance of cross-cultural inquiry. It’s a fascinating interview that we hope you’ll enjoy. We know you’ll get a lot out of it.”
The interview portion with Dr. Marker begins at minute 05:28.
