Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning

According to scholars, culturally responsive digital learning is a powerful tool for promoting inclusivity, equity, and academic success in education (Ladson-Billings, 2014; Gay, 2018). This approach recognizes and values the diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences of students and uses technology to create personalized learning experiences that incorporate culturally relevant content and teaching strategies (Ford & Grantham, 2020). By embracing cultural diversity, educators can create a more inclusive and empowering educational environment that meets the unique needs and perspectives of each learner (Benjamin & Henry, 2018).
