Abstract

This study aims to improve equity and social justice integrated with schooling in the face of powerful digital technologies. It critically examines educational issues in an eGlobal society. This academic contribution uses public information data from a school district in a U.S.-Mexico borderland context, where transnational students and their families in diasporic traumatic experiences face challenges with decontextualized learning. Students and teachers are oppressed with standardized corporate assessments, which replace authentic learning with institutionalized knowledge. We explore Freirean concepts that encourage authentic learner participation utilizing students’ real-life experiences and culturally responsive teaching in online environments.
