Crystal Machado’s chapter “Open Young Minds and Hearts: Employ Technology-infused Critical Pedagogy in Hybrid Border Spaces” has been published in Kelly Heider and Mary Jalongo’s edited book Young Children and Families in the Information Age.

This chapter provides a minoritized perspective, which is often absent from the mainstream discourse in teacher education. It describes the need for pedagogy that supports acculturation in all children rather than assimilation in those who identify with non-dominant groups. \

The author describes how Web-based technology and critical pedagogy can be used to create technology-infused hybrid border spaces where effective cross-cultural interaction and transformative learning can take place.
