In this article, Chris Gilliard, a professor of English at Macomb Community College in Michigan, looks at the concept of digital redlining and how it is integrated into technologies, especially education technologies. Gilliard defines digital redlining as “the creation and maintenance of technological policies, practices, pedagogy, and investment decisions that enforce class boundaries and discriminate against specific groups.” He discusses educating students about this issue, and “envisioning, with students, new ways to exist online.”
