In this session, participants will have mutli-sensory opportunities to expand their understandings of social justice beyond traditional categories of race, class and religion; will understand better: 1)  why learner-driven, meaning networks - not ideology, nor "white bread" content - must drive social justice framing in UDL; 2) how what is missing from representation too often enforces an unwritten code of denial and cultural silence that perpetuates oppression, and 3) how designed-in strategic networks (the differentiated "how" of learning)  can help address - or else perpetuate - implicit bias; and 4) how thoughfully designed technology can meet some of these challenges. Stories, pair sharing, interpetation of images and coloring exercises will help participants experience first-hand how learning needs are created out of the particularities of intersecting identities and how each educator's particular background may impact their preceptions of color,  normal behavior", language and symbols, and through that, what they offer thier students - -  all in 18 minutes!
  "In their own words."
