There is a digital divide in the United States’ education system which can be both exasperated and addressed through technological innovation. COVID-19 has further stressed this system and laid bare the technical inequities of our local communities and cities. As stakeholders across our country face the frontlines of the digital divide, we need tangible and practical examples to address the situation at hand while considering long-term strategies that can act as a forcing function to improve connectivity.

Join a panel of federal, state, county and municipal authorities and leaders from the US Department of Education, Link Oregon, Albemarle County of Virginia, Albemarle County Public Schools, The Enterprise Center of City of Chattanooga, and NIST to discuss the issues, considerations and strategies across urban and rural America on how to strategize your digital equity plans. This panel and event is hosted by the Education SuperCluster, a consortium of public and private organizations developing best practices for education innovation in smart cities. We were born out of the NIST Global City Teams Challenge.

Share your concerns, questions, and expertise with us as we discuss, discover, and connect with our digital equity frontliners to create a smart and connected society across all communities. Join us as we take advantage of the opportunity presented by social distancing to improve the connectivity of student, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised community members through the lens of education.
