Technology has become ubiquitous and young people now more than ever need access to technology devices and quality digital learning opportunities. However, research tells us that not all students currently have this access. The digital divide is a critical equity issue because access to meaningful digital learning is an essential component in preparing young people for academic and post-secondary success in the 21st century. In this interactive session, you will hear about research and strategies that will you help you better address this challenge in out of school time. Participants will also learn about the Afterschool Tech Toolkit, a free resource developed by NAA to guide staff in designing and implementing digital learning.
