Interested PT3 project leaders, staff and evaluators formed a Digital Equity Network to define major digital divide issues in education, identify promising and proven strategies and resources for fostering digital equity, share such strategies and resources with one another, and disseminate them to interested educators nationwide. In this presentation, participants will learn about the Digital Equity Portal and Digital Equity Toolkit which the National Institute for Community Innovations developed in collaboration with the Digital Equity Network. SITE members will learn how to benefit from and contribute to the portal and toolkit as practical resources helping educators address the digital divide in their classroom and community.
