Learn how HP, Intel, and Verizon are partnering to advocate for digital equity and improve students’ access to technology and connectivity.

A diverse panel of educators and industry experts will discuss:

  • How schools can leverage the latest technologies to support learning from anywhere
  • Strategies for schools to implement connected devices in their ecosystem

The pandemic magnified the impact of the digital divide on the education system. In a world where technology is a defining element of education, the digital divide sets children without access to hardware, connectivity, digital literacy, and cybersecurity farther behind.

The gap in access to technology and connectivity is even wider for lower-income and rural communities. Without access and digital literacy, students and teachers won’t be able to benefit from future EdTech advancements and opportunities.

Speakers
Betty Garcia-Hill
Global Education Technologist, HP
Dr. Larry Rother
Global Education Strategist, Intel

Solution Executive - Education, Verizon
Moderators
