Race and Gender Biases Appear in Online Education

The assigned TEDTalk and article for the week are:
“Race and Gender Biases Appear in Online Education” by Rachel Baker, et al
“A Teaching Assistant Named Jill Watson” by Ashok Goel (TEDTalk)
As we do the class readings, we will begin to uncover different conversations about technology that exist between the authors. This discussion forum is a place for us to discuss and compare some of the connections we see. For this week’s discussion forum, write and post about a connection that you see between the authors so far. Be specific in identifying at least two articles and in discussing the connection you see between them. What is similar in their subject, ideas, attitudes? Conversely, where and how do they diverge?
