Technology plays a critical role in today’s schools, but the past year has highlighted the challenges in providing students with equitable access to technology and learning. As you plan and budget for the coming school year, there is the opportunity to reimagine teaching, learning, and how you leverage edtech to provide a diverse and equitable educational experience to students.

Join educator and consultant Ken Shelton for this edLeader Panel to learn how to move beyond digital equity to use classroom technologies to create truly inclusive and culturally conscious learning environments. Ken will discuss:

  • Why technology is a critical and necessary component of all learning environments
  • The key culturally responsive and relevant characteristics of digital learning
  • How to use technology to create equitable learning opportunities
  • How to ensure sustainable growth

Use this powerful and engaging presentation as a springboard for your conversations around using technology to create a culture of inclusivity, accessibility, and true equity. This edLeader Panel will be of interest to K-12 librarians, school and district leaders, school counselors, and school psychologists. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
