Ethnocentric Learning Objects: Leveraging GitHub for Object-Oriented Inference in Education

Potential Abstract:
In the realm of educational technology, the utilization of learning objects has become a prevalent method for enhancing student engagement and facilitating personalized learning experiences. However, the design and implementation of these learning objects often reflect the cultural biases and perspectives of their creators, leading to ethnocentric content that may not be inclusive or relevant for all learners. This study explores the potential of leveraging GitHub, a collaborative platform for software development, to create and share object-oriented learning resources that promote culturally responsive pedagogy and foster critical thinking skills through inference. By establishing a community-driven approach to the development of learning objects, educators can collaboratively design resources that incorporate diverse perspectives and cultural contexts, ultimately enhancing the educational experience for all students.
