Titled “Supporting Students & Families in Out-of-School Learning,” CoSN has updated its Digital Equity Toolkit.
The new version spotlights ways in which schools and districts have successfully addressed digital equity challenges and identifies community engagement opportunities around digital access and inclusion.
A community concern
80 percent of 8th graders reported using a computer at home for schoolwork on a weekday, putting students without home Internet access at a significant disadvantage.
The toolkit is a practical guide for educational leaders looking to address digital equity concerns in their communities.
5 strategies schools can use
The toolkit discusses five strategies schools and districts can implement to address the “Homework Gap” and four steps school leaders can take to collaborate with local governments and other community leaders.
