What is Equitable Digital Access?

 

According to The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), equitable digital access is reliable access to current and emerging technologies and digital resources, with connectivity for all students, including those with special needs, teachers, staff and school leaders.

Equitable digital access allows collaborative capablilities among educators, students, andother professionals. It enables digital resources helpful to meeting learning and teaching goals. Although a majority of the population has personal access to digital resources, not every learner has equal access. Technology is a vital part of society and in order to offer students and educators with the best learning opportuntities available, everyone needs to have equal access.
 
The goal in education is that all schools will be able to provide Internet access, desktop computers, mobile computers or devices, videoconferencing capabilities, online collaboration capabilities, message boards, email, and more. As new technologies emerge, educating institutions will attempt to provide reliable access to them. This video helps give a better understanding to why equitable digital access in 21st century learning is important.
