Action Research Portfolio  | 2006-2021 | Josh Burker

Josh recreates his action research portfolio from 2006 reflecting on the changes he saw.  He started with the value of inclusion and equity and ended up developing a set of leadership experiences for these students.  The project shifted from a focus on computer club to one of students' voice and how he could work with students to help them see how technology can enable them to participate in the school community in ways that were less available in the past and even more available now in the future.
