As Indigenous educators who share a passion for innovative approaches using
instructional media, we are inspired to explore the ways in which technology can
support teaching and learning from Indigenous perspectives. Several scholars
advocate the use of technology in reclamation of First Peoples’ voices, stories and
other ways of knowing (Ginsburg, 2000; Iseke-Barnes, 2002; Dyson, Hendriks &
Grant, 2007). Reflecting social constructionism, we believe media can be designed
to build educator capacity within these special interest areas. By highlighting work
that is currently underway within Indigenous education, we invite readers to
imagine their own possibilities for transformative and decolonizing pedagogy.
