22. All Change Is Linguistic

All change is linguistic.

It’s something that I frequently remind people of, but what do I really mean when I say that?

The words we use have meanings. Changes in our language reflect the deeper cultural shifts at play and help us dismantle barriers and promote understanding.

In this episode, I want to take a moment to dig into how linguistic changes bring us closer to our goal of more equitable, accessible, and supportive learning environments.

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEAR:

  • How the language we use embodies our values and commitments to change
  • How seemingly simple shifts in language help us create more supportive, inclusive learning environments
  • How language drives change in narratives and pedagogical approaches to our students
