Model and promote strategies for achieving equitable access to digital tools and resources and technology-related best practices for all students and teachers
As a technology coach, I have demonstrated and met ISTE-C 5a through my Digital Readiness Project. For this project I was able to interview my administrator about the usage of technology and digital citizenship instruction happening in the entire elementary school. During the interview, equity was one of the principles of digital citizenship discussed. After identifying that not all students were given access to technology in an equitable way at school or at home, we devised a possible plan to remedy that lack of equity. Additionally, my principal identified the need to develop a scope and sequence for digital citizenship instruction in our school at all grade levels K-5. Once developed, each classroom teacher and the librarian, who integrates technology instruction into her instruction across grade levels, would have some guidelines to identify what skills we are responsible for teaching across grade levels to develop the digital literacy of students over their time in elementary school.
