Resources to Close the Homework Gap for ALL Your Students
Robert McLaughlin Ph.D., Founder & Chair, Nat'l Collaborative for Digital Equity

Level: All
Grades: Leadership
Join Dr. Robert McLaughlin, founder and leader of the National Collaborative for Digital Equity (NCDE), based in Weare, NH. NCDE has pioneered a national initiative to assist states to mobilize community leadership teams in low-income areas to close the digital divide for learners of all ages, in support of educational and economic opportunity. Many NH students in low-income and rural areas face the "homework gap" " i.e., lack affordable home access to computers, broadband, tech support, assistance in addressing cyberbullying and device addiction, and other requisites for learning in the digital age. Join us for this very interactive exploration of a wide range of resources you and your colleagues can tap to close the digital divide at home through a wide range of resources, brought together by the nonprofit NH-based National Collaborative for Digital Equity. Participants receive a copy of NCDE's Guide to CRA Grantmaking for Digital Equity and Economic Inclusion.
