The rising cost of college tuition means that pursuing a degree is even harder. Ever-changing technology, including online courses, however, has not only made that goal accessible to everyone, but challenged the hierarchy in higher education. Co-hosted by Zocalo Public Square and Arizona State University, this lecture asks “Can Digital Learning Dismantle the American Class System?” and looks at how these advances are impacting both students and teachers. Moderated by Goldie Blumenstyk, author and senior writer at The Chronicle of Higher Education, this panel discussion features Arizona State University president Michael Crow; retired superintendent of the Coachella Valley United School District Darryl Adams; University of Maryland University College Provost Marie Cini; and Chief Education Evangelist at Google Jaime Casap.
