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.
Access must intersect with adoption.
Our CEO Phyllis Martin joined ElevatED4SC to talk about how bridging the digital divide is key to building successful communities.
Our hope is to align with community partners so we can better leverage all of our resources. We're so thankful to have so many great partners. We hope you'll join us too!
Dorchester County - Join us for this great event on Saturday!
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.
When we talk about digital inclusion there are two key elements that must work together.
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.
TCCC is hiring an AmeriCorps VISTA! Our VISTA project is an incredible opportunity for a highly motivated individual to increase equitable access and adoption of broadband, technology, and digital skills throughout the tri-county region with a focus on marginalized rural and urban communities. The VISTA will assist with program design, data collection and analysis, and aligning community partners to build scalable, sustainable models that achieve stated short, intermediate, and long-term goals. For more information, or to apply, please visit:
There are 19,000 children who don't have access to broadband internet at home across the tri-county?
That means they can't do their homework, engage during e-learning days, and so much more.
Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative is a community movement committed to improving educational outcomes for ALL students. We're focused on getting students the access they need to thrive.
