We talk a lot about equity and access, but if students don’t have consistent connections, they will not have consistent access. Relying on parents’ hotspots and other external wifi connections often means students do not have the consistent access they require for online and hybrid learning. This is especially evident for rural, BIPOC, and students residing in high poverty areas who are disproportionately affected by persistent periods of limited or variable connectivity to the internet.
In this Tech & Learning virtual roundtable, Dr. Kecia Ray talks with leaders about the challenges when no consistent internet connection is present to support successful virtual and online learning, including device storage and the functionality of applications. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, the key research presented in this webinar will help school districts learn about which tools and strategies can improve the process and practice of teaching and learning.
