Access to devices and connectivity to effectively use technology to participate in the digital components of life are critical for students to participate in society while in school and beyond. But digital access is not enough.
Many curricula and industry standards now include multiple aspects of technology usage, so districts must expand beyond providing access to bringing together their mission, visions, pedagogy, and technology across departments and stakeholders.
As a former high school English Teacher, district educational technology professional, international keynote speaker, and education consultant, I have experience driving adoption across multiple types of educational environments at various stages of implementing educational technology.
Through a systems approach focusing on learner needs, education systems can plan and sustain digital equity. If you are interested in learning more about the ways I can assist, please reach out.
