WCET Webcast: Narrowing the Digital Divide: Pragmatic and Student-Centered Approaches
The digital divide became a wider abyss for many students as institutions moved to remote learning in Spring 2020 in the midst of COVID-19. Internet deserts are seeing the potential for broadband connectivity diminish as localities face dire budget implications and national efforts seem idle. Beyond connectivity, access to devices and technology are a roadblock to many. Join our panelists as they discuss the digital and technology divide, policies, and strategies, including:
• Status of national broadband efforts and net neutrality.
• CARES Act.
• Creative solutions for providing access to critical technology including laptops and Wi-Fi.
• Innovative approaches to serving geographically rural and urban students.
