Equity

Technology can be a powerful tool for transforming learning. It can help affirm and advance relationships between educators and students, reinvent our approaches to learning and collaboration, shrink long-standing equity and accessibility gaps, and adapt learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners.

The Office of Educational Technology focuses on using technology to transform learning experiences with the goal of providing greater equity and accessibility.
