With advancements in GenAI and new promises of transformation, effectively integrating educational technology in classrooms and ensuring equitable learning experiences for all students are more crucial than ever. The National Education Technology Plan outlines ambitious goals for digital equity. Achieving them requires actionable insights and informed strategies. Enter the Speak Up Leader Survey, a powerful tool that connects the dots by providing a digital equity readiness report to inform their next steps in closing the three digital divides.

Addressing Digital Inequity in Schools

The SpeakUp Leader Survey helps address the digital divide.

If you are a regular consumer of TechNotes, you will recall last month’s post “The 2024 National Educational Technology Plan (NETP): Closing The Digital Divide.” TCEA’s Government Relations Director Matt Russell outlined all the ways that TCEA members can benefit from the organization’s offerings aligned to the plan’s call to action. 

As a quick refresher, the recently released National Educational Technology Plan (NETP) puts a laser focus on equity concerns in education. It emphasizes how technology could be better used in the classroom to support learning for all students through the lens of three digital divides: access, design, and usage. As a member of the NETP development team, Project Tomorrow is very proud of this focus and the plan’s recommendations for addressing digital inequity. But you may be asking yourself:

  • Are we ready to address the equity challenges?
  • Are we prepared to implement the recommendations in the NETP? 
  • Where do we need to begin? 

Get Your Readiness Report Card

Project Tomorrow, in partnership with TCEA, can help you answer those questions with our new Speak Up Leader Survey. Encourage your district administrators and school building leaders to complete the 15-minute survey. In turn, we will send you a report card on your overall readiness to tackle digital equity in your district. Getting started is as easy as registering your district! Project Tomorrow will send you a customized link for distribution. We’ve even put together this promotional toolkit for TCEA members with messaging to take to your cabinet for approval requests and to help promote participation once approved.

You are invited to preview the survey. Note that Speak Up participation is free to all schools and districts. All data collected is confidential and no single individual can be identified from any submitted entry. Don’t delay. The survey closes on June 21 for TCEA members.
