2 Best Practices for Adopting Technology To Support Equitable Learning The pandemic and associated classroom closures generated a host of challenges for K-12 leaders. Inequities they had known about for years came into even greater focus, leading communities to come together to ensure all students had access to equitable, viable curriculum and support while learning at home.
