Digital Inclusion in Schools: Partnership & Policy

Mar 5, 2018

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Increasingly schools are turning to web-based tools—homework submission, high stakes testing, and even course taking. Yet many families still do not have in-home internet access. Are we imperiling the promise of edtech innovation by ignoring this widespread disparity? This session discusses how a corporation, university, and charter school network partner to address digital inclusion. They will discuss implications for schools and how others can work across sectors to solve similar disparities.
