The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed a stark digital divide within education, with many schools woefully underprepared for the shift to remote learning. When schools initially closed and transitioned to remote learning plans in the spring, many students lacked access to a device, the internet, or both.
These shortcomings were resolved for some students over the summer, but unfortunately, too many students still remain underserved as the new school year has begun.
With many school districts across the nation finalizing remote, in-person, or hybrid learning plans, technology has now become an essential back-to-school supply. Schools across the country are now having to figure out how to morph from a pandemic-driven reactive approach to a more proactive approach to help students and educators overcome the challenges that still exist in remote learning.
