Brief Session Description: As digital content becomes increasingly prevalent in the K-12 setting, providing all students with access and connectivity is imperative to address digital equity. Over the past several years, Forsyth County Schools has addressed digital equity by connecting students with wireless connectivity via hotspots, involving the local business community, working with a foundation, and many other initiatives. This session will highlight our implementation plan, success stories, and the (many) lessons learned along the way. Join us to learn how our efforts have impacted digital equity and to gather ideas to take back to your school or district. Participants will walk away from this session with an action plan to address digital equity.
