Digital Equity Action Agenda
Student access to robust digital tools is key to their success as 21st century citizens. Yet many students from economically disadvantaged families have limited access to these tools both at school and at home. CoSN is working to close the access gap for learning no matter where students are. Thank you to the following sponsors for their support of the Digital Equity Action Agenda Initiative: AT&T, Dell, Google Fiber, Kajeet, and Qualcomm Education, Inc.
NEW: Digital Equity Award & Student Video Contest
The Community Leadership Award for Digital Equity was created to encourage and recognize those districts that are working to eliminate inequities and narrow the access gap. Also, learn more about our Digital Equity Student Video Challenge for students in grades 6-12.
