Digital Equity Network

last person joined: 2 days ago 

The Digital Equity Network works to inspire thoughtful discussion as well as action aimed to ensure access and opportunities for all learners. Through weekly and monthly sharing, we will challenge the status quo concerning the “haves and have nots” of access while providing consistent information and actionable resources to better help school leaders make equitable decisions concerning technology infrastructures and digital learning.

  • Joint ISTE Playground w/ Digital Citizenship

    Calling all #digcit #equity advocates, teachers, coaches, coordinators, admin & community members! Submit your proposal to present at the ISTE Digital Citizenship & Digital Equity Joint Playground 2020!

    The Digital Citizenship and Digital Equity PLN is excited to be hosting a playground at the ISTE 2020 Conference in Anaheim, California. We are taking proposals for energetic and engaging sessions that will present based on the Playground theme, "Moving Beyond #DigCit Basics: In Search of Equity". 

    Title: Digital Citizenship and Digital Equity Playground – “Moving Beyond #DigCit Basics: In Search of Equity”

    Date/Time:

    Sunday, June 28, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, PST –

    Playground A

    Description: Come present at the Digital Citizenship and Digital Equity combined Playground at ISTE 2020 to show how you infuse both digital citizenship and digital equity principles into your everyday work with students. Do you go beyond simply discussing “Internet safety” with your students to help them be agents for social justice and a force for positive change in the world? If so present at the Playground to show how you make a difference to Digital Citizenship and Digital Equity and use student voices to make a positive change for social justice.

    Note: Proposals that include both Digital Citizenship & Digital Equity will have a higher chance of being accepted. 

    Our playground will have:  

    6 presentation areas for demonstration/hands-on activities.

     4 poster areas.

    2 larger demonstration areas will be dedicated to topics of Digital Equity & Digital Citizenship in an ignite, panel, or Q&A format. 

    We are open to whatever ideas you have implemented in your curriculum or presented about for Digital Equity and Digital Citizenship. We would love to have interactive playful experience for the ISTE 2020 attendees. Are you a local teacher in the LA area and have students that would like to present at the playground? Please help them submit a proposal so we can hear the student voices that are making an impact for social justice with Digital Citizenship and Digital Equity! 

    Please submit your ideas and proposals here (Link). You can submit as many as you wish and let us know if you have any questions. 

    Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

    ISTE is continuing its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion by prompting session submitters to think about, and then explain, how each speaker in their session contributes to the diversity of perspectives within the session content.
