The “Tech Gap” and Covid-19

Tech Gap banner

If internet and education are both basic human rights, what does it mean when some communities in Canada don’t have internet access during Covid-19? Divisions are doing their best, but have students sitting in parking lots with giveaway devices. We need long-term solutions. Join hosts Jackie and Michelle as they discuss the tech gap and education with guests Kirsten Thompson, Dr. Michael Nantais, and Dr. Alec Couros.
