Digital Access Equity is the idea to provide ALL students with access to technology.  Technology has not only changed the world, but the classroom as well.  Teachers have access to unlimited sources and tools for instruction.  Technology has become essential.  Students are now accustomed to social media and the internet for information.  This dependency requires teachers to adapt as well.

The issue is access.  Not every student is fortunate enough to carry around devices or have access to the internet at home.  This makes it vital for educators to provide equitable access.  This page gives teachers information and ideas for obtaining digital access for ALL students.
