As your school or district makes the transition to digital learning, it's important to identify and support students both inside and outside of school. Not only do issues of digital equity create challenges in schools and classrooms, but educators and administrators also need to consider who may have difficulty accessing digital devices, the Internet, and/or digital learning supports when they leave school grounds. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the the three-legged challenge of digital equity - access, devices, and literacy - and discuss some of the strategies highlighted in the Consortium for School Networking’s Digital Equity Toolkit to address the needs of ALL students.
