Digital learning has the potential to contribute to educational equity. Equitable use of technology takes careful implementation, a focus on the instructional purpose, and with a full understanding of the variety of factors that impact a student's relationship with school, technology, and learning. In this session, Dr. Lanette Trowery and educator Kristine Napper will discuss ways that tech can be used to drive educational equity, or #Techquity.

We all hold implicit and explicit biases and assumptions, despite our awareness of them — but we all also have the ability to acknowledge and deconstruct those biases. In this session, presenters will lead a collaborative, workshop-based discussion designed for K–12 educators who wish to further equity and inclusivity starting with their own relationships with students, peers, and families. Discussion will reflect on and deconstruct explicit biases while creating an affirming school culture.

Educational Equity Resources
Educational equity means that all students should have access to the right resources they need at the right moment in their education, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, language, religion, family background, or family income (The Aspen Institute).
