Access must intersect with adoption.

Many of our schools tout a one-to-one model. That means each student gets their own device for school work and homework.

But... if those students don't have an understanding of how to use their device or support at home, they will be left behind their peers.

Supporting our young learners and their families through digital inclusion makes our community stronger and more equipped long-term.
Our CEO Phyllis Martin joined ElevatED4SC to talk about how bridging the digital divide is key to building successful communities.

Dorchester County - Join us for this great event on Saturday!
When we talk about digital inclusion there are two key elements that must work together.

One of the keys is *access*. That means the presence of physical infrastructure.

Some communities can't even get online right now. We can change that.

We must change that so that our students and their families can take part in so many vital parts of everyday society.
One way many families build generational wealth is through the ownership of property. But some people are left out of the full benefits of homeownership. Homes with high-speed internet access, especially fiber, have a better, higher resale value. That's just ONE reason digital inclusion is so important.

Phyllis Martin, Executive Director and visionary for this week, believes that by supporting neighborhood-level program pilots, we keep families connected and keep the internet sufficient for kids to attend (virtual) school and adults to maintain (now) virtual jobs we can change individual lives and our entire community.

The goal of the Digital Equity & Inclusion Initiative is to increase the adoption of technology for all families living in rural, metro and suburban areas to thrive.

03/14/2022

The goals are clear and we have a path forward.
Here's what we will do.
• Increase the number of individuals or households that have sufficient internet-enabled devices to sustain productive learning, wage-earning and health and wellness.
• Increase the number of students with access to online learning opportunities in the summer months via online classes offered in neighborhood community centers or schools.
• Increase the number of people who complete financial
literacy training through online learning portals.
• Increase the number of households who receive access to essential services and benefits needed to stabilize and mitigate an economic crisis.
• Increase the number of unbanked and underbanked individuals who adopt online retail financial services and products to increase financial asset accumulation.
• Increase the number of individuals who file 2023 taxes using E-filing services.
• Increase the number of unemployed and underemployed individuals to access and adopt (virtual) work from home employment opportunities

What are we doing?

Digital Inclusion is defined as the activities necessary to ensure that all individuals and communities, including the most disadvantaged, have access to, and use of, information and communication technologies.

Right now there are 39,000 households that do not have access to broadband internet in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester Counties.

We can change that.... and when we do, we will change our entire community.

When we use the term "digital inclusion" that means we're working toward these key goals:

-Ensure everyone has adequate hardware to access the internet.

-Provide broadband internet access where there are currently gaps.

-Train people with the skills they need to use the internet effectively.

-Provide an advocate in each county.

How do you bank? See the doctor? Apply for jobs? Very frequently we use the internet to do these tasks.

We understand that digital equity is necessary for everyone to engage in civic and cultural activities and to have access to remote work environments and advancement in employment, life-long learning, and essential services.

Unfortunately, thousands of families in our region do not have access. We're working to change that. Having access to broadband and the skills to use the internet are essential.

Access to high-speed internet is essential for the Lowcountry to sustain economic vitality and growth.

More importantly, access to the internet and online learning is critical to the in-school and out-of-school academic achievement of our children.

We're turning our focus to digital inclusion. We want to make sure our students have access to the internet and their families are supported in using it.

We're officially kicking off this initiative on March 11.

How we live now in Charleston, and the rest of the country, can be linked to a woman born here on May 3, 1898. It’s the day we celebrate the birthday of Septima Poinsette Clark, whom Martin Luther King Junior called the “Mother of the Movement.” And today, we honor her for the last day of Black History Month

Today we honor Augusta Braxton Baker, the first African American woman to hold an administrative position with the New York Public Library (NYPL). She was a pioneering advocate of the positive portrayal of blacks in children’s literature, and beginning in the 1930s removed books with negative stereotypes from the NYPL shelves. After her retirement she moved to Columbia, South Carolina to become the University of South Carolina’s story-teller-in-residence at the school’s College of Library and Information Science.
