Race and recess: Design tools for reducing inequities

Racism and inequity in education are products of design, thus, they can be redesigned. And since more than half of US K-12 classrooms have a computer for every student, tech can be a catalyst for this change when used responsibly. However, it requires making tweaks to our traditional human-centered-design methods.
