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