Although incredible progress has been made, equity issues remain prevalent in schools and districts across the country. Historically underserved students often lack the needed access and opportunity that’s often afforded to their more affluent counterparts. What practical steps can educators take to help close digital equity gaps in both access and opportunity, while at home and in the classroom?

This Future Ready Schools® (FRS) webinar will highlight effective approaches to addressing digital inequities in both teacher preparation programs and in schools today; offer recommendations for moving beyond identifying an inequity into recommendations for closing the digital equity gap; and provide practical solutions to support students both in and outside of school.

Attendees will leave with key strategies to support teachers striving for digital equity in their classrooms, beyond device allocations. The ideas put forth in the webinar will challenge teacher educators, principals, and those leading professional learning to create spaces and opportunities for all teachers to apply digital equity practices.

The panelists will also share

  • insight into digital equity issues that remain in today’s schools;
  • practical tips for how to navigate the equity issues; and
  • ways that schools and districts are and can intentionally close the gaps.
