The “Tech Gap” and Covid-19
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.
Some helpful resources:
- MVSD Year End Tech Checklist (PDF) — includes a self-reflection guide for the use of Microsoft Teams for online learning
- MVSD Online Teaching Self-Reflection (DOCX) — We hope that this will provide a foundation for future professional development programming.
- MVSD Tech Access Survey Results
