Education First Compact: Beyond Coding — Meeting the Challenges of Digital Literacy

Virtual Event

Join us for December’s Education First Compact, when we’ll examine ways in which Philadelphia is responding to educational equity and the digital divide – a challenge highlighted during this year’s COVID pandemic.

From the need for equitable access to technology to workplace demand for advanced digital literacy skills, our students are facing a differently-networked world. Are they being prepared to meet the challenge?
