Preserving Black History On The Metaverse
William Jackson, M.Ed.
We are very excited about the opportunity to speak about the
preservation of Black History on the Metaverse.
Aida Jackson and I love sharing our knowledge as Certified VR &
STEAM+M Educators and advocates for digital learning for students
from elementary school to higher education.
As an African American educator of 33 years in the books, but really
teaching since I was a teenager that would be over 40 years. I’m a
proud 4th gen teacher, learning from my parents, grandparents and
other family members, education is an honorable profession.
The switch in honoring education has been a gradual destruction
of the value of educators.
Through the global pandemic globally teachers have been teaching
virtually, in some of the most extreme cases and locations. Educators
across Africa were teaching in fields, around fireplaces, in caves and
other places that were not always conducive, but did work to get
and keep kids learning.
Having taught my first 15 years in Palatka, Florida as a Physical
Education Teacher and making the transition to technology teacher.
Being blessed to have worked for NASA, and the Florida Department
of Education. The opportunity to travel across the State of Florida and
the State of Georgia on occasions.
Speaking and presenting at major conferences. I was usually the only
Black person to be able to speak and did not receive recognition,
respect and regard because of my color and my gender as a Black man.
Perserverance, prayer, practice and punctuality are important and key
to being successful and purposeful.
