Tune in as Dr. Kimberly Greene goes beyond preconceived notions of what it means to be a teacher and shares her vision of an education that is synonymous with exploration and innovation while acknowledging there is more than one way to learn.

Greene speaks to the ways EdTech can progress in terms of diversity in the classroom and urges listeners to recognize that education is in a new day. She says it is time to stop dehumanizing a profession that is all about building relationships to gain trust and empower people to take chances, grow, and bloom.

KEY POINTS:

QUOTABLES:

“One of the things that can truly hold us back is our experience. That we're not able to step back and recognize just because it's what we lived at the time, doesn't mean that it was either the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, or the way things need to be going forward.” - Dr. Kimberly Greene

“We can't assembly line education.” - Dr. Kimberly Greene

This is an amazing podcast. I am glad you are stepping up and talking about a sensitive topic that is not talked about enough. Thank you for sharing this information. It effects students in higher education and the effects carry over into the workforce when the students graduate. Some students are tainted because there was not enough taught on diversity and the students perspective are skewed.
