Technology plays a huge role in the lives of our students–and we believe students should have equitable opportunities to access technology. But our job as educators goes way beyond making sure students master the hardware and software of today's technology.
Students must be innovative problem solvers. They must be able to adapt to the constantly changing technology landscape. They must be critical consumers of digital content.
That's why one of our big strategic goals is centered on digital and media literacy: students will graduate with the problem-solving and critical-thinking skills necessary to live and work responsibly in a digital world.
How do we plan to reach our digital and media literacy goal? We are tracking a few metrics:
- Number of students proficient in digital citizenship in elementary, middle and high school
- Number of students who have access to devices with a ratio of at least 2:1
