Cultural Differences and Digital Divide in Nutrition Education and Cooking Classes for Families and Children
Siew Sun Wong, Danita Macy, Olivia Davis
Oregon State University, United States of America

This one hour Practitioner Special Session will include oral presentations and group innovation activities. It aims to increase the understanding and appreciation of the cultural differences in delivering nutrition education and cooking lessons to specific cultural group, hence the appropriate use of immersive technology. It also aims to create a “Talent Marketplace” for the attendees, presenters, and facilitators (i.e., educational technology experts or entrepreneurs) to exchange ideas, best practices and program resources to increase nutrition educator’s cultural competencies and technology competencies to increase teaching skill, learning outcomes, and positive in dietary behavior. The session will start with a panel presentation and discussion about the similarities and differences in pedagogy and andragogy in tech-aided nutrition education and cooking classes across cultural groups. Then the attendees self-select a virtual breakout room or round table to discuss culture-specific pain points more in-depth and co-create solutions together, then share back with the larger group.
