Leading for Digital Equity – AA 3968

May 19, 2023 @ 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM


The implementation of technology has allowed schools to think outside of the box and incorporate many

new pedagogical designs over the past two decades. The significant growth in technology use may

provide many positive outcomes, however, it has created a large barrier and an achievement gap for

students without access.

As educational leaders, we must focus on digital equity to ensure all learners, families/caregivers, and

communities have access to reliable, high-speed broadband and technology tools for learning.

This course will give educational leaders tools to address the main three areas required for digital equity,

availability, affordability, and adoption. We will focus on the five key steps for leaders of digital equity

outlined by the US Department of Education.

1. Develop and earn public trust through partnerships.

2. Learn from those impacted by inequitable access and provide opportunities for feedback.

3. Co-develop clear goals and strategies with communities to craft a comprehensive digital equity plan.

4. Raise public awareness and provide ongoing support for low- or no-cost broadband programs.

5. Provide digital literacy training and professional learning opportunities.
