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.


With rich accounts of two districts’ efforts to integrate digital tools, the authors offer a well-reasoned caution that digital tools can easily replicate, even amplify, inequality in our education system. Yet, they offer a clear outline for how districts can adopt and implement digital tools to improve learning for all students. This book is an essential read for any school system leader. — Betheny Gross, associate director, Center on Reinventing Public Education, University of Washington Bothell

At this moment, we are grappling with not only how to ensure equity of access to devices and internet but also how to provide equity in quality and delivery of digital content. This book serves as a resource to help educational organizations understand how we got here and offers solutions on where to go. — Lakisha Brinson, Director of Learning Technology, Metro Nashville Public Schools
