Equity and Quality in Digital Learning identifies and presents specific strategies and practices for using digital tools to reduce inequities in educational opportunities and improve student outcomes. Based on the authors' ten-year research-practice partnership with both the Dallas and Milwaukee public school districts, the book highlights the factors that can support or impede the effective implementation of digital learning in K-12 schools at all levels: district, school, classroom, and student. Digital initiatives can boost higher levels of learning, the authors advocate, but require planning, monitoring and assessment, and revamping and refinement. As public schools in the United States continue to make major investments in digital learning, the variability in how it's rolled out, accessed, and supported, both during and outside of the regular school day, threatens to exacerbate rather than reduce inequities in learning opportunities, the authors argue. It is critical to ensure that the chosen digital tools are effectively leveraged to enhance learning and reduce achievement gaps, especially for those students historically underserved in K-12 schools. The authors offer concrete ways to use evidence from the book to increase the effectiveness of digital learning. Equity and Quality in Digital Learning contributes critical insights and tools needed for educators and policy makers to deliver on the promise of digital learning in American schools.
