iPhone : How can we fix the #homeworkgap?

The FCC can update E-rate. It’s the nation’s largest education technology program and it can help schools do things like loan out wireless hotspots so every child can go to online class. But the FCC is looking the other way and that has to stop.

iPhone : Austin ISD is investing in 10,000 additional Internet hotspots (to >18,000) and purchasing computers for *every* student PK-12. We continue to invest in professional development and our learning platforms of BLEND and Seesaw to accelerate blended & personalized learning.

iPhone : The Digital Divide is more than a homework gap. It’s an issue of equity for access to resources, news, employment, health, and more. Austin ISD is helping to close that gap. In any school scenario (F2F, hybrid, distance), our students benefit from access.

iPhone : ❤❤❤❤❤ Thank you. It feels good to be loved. Thank you for lifting women in our community. twitter.com/austinwoman/st…

iPhone : For Black Austin + allies
I wrote a playbook of steps we can take immediately to empower our pain.

Twitter for iPad : Like so many educators around the country, we are also making sense of what it means to be flexible and forward thinking, while also staying grounded in what matters most for the student experience. twitter.com/aisdtdt/status…

iPhone : What paths are we co-developing with our students & families at this time to achieve equitable outcomes? What are we hearing about their strengths & access needs? What new policies & practices will change the educational system forever to address inequities? #realequity

iPhone : Blended and personalized learning (primarily for equity but also as a practical matter) is at the heart of every approach. Substantial work is underway to specifically address the PK-2 tech device gap, but cannot announce at this point. twitter.com/Tweetlahuac/st…

iPhone : A nice summary from Richard Culatta: 5 Traps That Will Kill Online Learning (and Strategies to Avoid Them) edsurge.com/news/2020-05-0… #edtech via EdSurge

iPhone : I feel like designing for distance learning has hit me in phases. First was survival, then "How can I make this better?", & now a realization for how much more room for growth there still is/will always be.

Twitter Web App : Updated Map video- Austin ISD has sent out more than 15,000 Chromebooks for delivery so far.
