Supporting Equity and Access with Technology

February 1 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

As technology plays a more essential role in today’s learning process, equity and access must remain front of mind. Otherwise, we as educators run the risk of expanding the digital divide and putting at-risk students in an even more precarious situation in the years to come. The good news is – we can take steps to increase equity and access in our classrooms and in our districts, starting today.

This 1-hour panel will help lay the foundations for more equitable edtech policies and procedures, starting at an individual level. During the course of this panel, LTC staff members will collaborate with participants as we strive to answer the essential question, “How can I ensure that every student’s access to learning is equitably supported with technology?” Participants will also have the chance to learn a few practical strategies for fostering equitable access in their own classroom, including for both in-person and remote learners.

Illinois educators who attend live can earn 1.0 PD Credit.
