Professor Gloria Ladson-Billings 

Professor Emerita-the University of Wisconsin-Madison, President of the National Academy of Education, and author of the acclaimed book, The Dreamkeepers: Successful Teachers of African American Children 

In the 25 years since the release of her work on Culturally Relevant Pedagogy, Ladson-Billings has discovered a missing element—youth culture—that must be factored into how we develop effective pedagogical strategies for young people who are struggling to be successful in schools. This talk reviews the basic propositions of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy with an eye toward the way technology and youth culture can and should revolutionize our pedagogy.
