Delivering on the Promise of Digital Equity
Digital knowledge and skills are needed to fully participate in the society and economy of the United States. The historic $65 billion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act represents a significant federal investment in advancing digital equity and inclusion, and an opportunity to make lasting change in communities across the country. This report proposes solutions to strategically use that funding to advance digital equity and inclusion. We recommend nine “big plays” that districts and states can make to that end, including building and sustaining infrastructure, strengthening teachers’ digital skills, and deeply engaging underrepresented communities.
