Department of Technology Equity Frame

Technology equity encompasses equity of access and equity of opportunity. When used effectively to help students create, think critically, communicate, and collaborate, technology can be a powerful lever to:

  • engage students in deeper learning
  • empower students through agency, voice, and identity
  • access content in rich, multi-modal ways
  • close access, achievement, and opportunity gaps
