This week's guest Vlog post is by Monica Leong, Digital Divide project manager, Calgary Learns.
Calgary Learns is excited to bring you the Digital Divide project, a new, one-year project that will engage with CALP practitioners all over the province. Through surveys, focus groups, interviews, and a MakerSpace event, we will collect and share what our field has learned through the shift to remote, online, and blended learning.
What barriers do your learners face in accessing remote, online, and blended learning programming?
What additional support is needed to address the digital divide for learners accessing CALP programs?
The Digital Divide project will create a research report for the province to advocate for support to help learners access remote, online, and blended learning programming. As well, the project will offer a user-friendly resource for practitioners to help programs offer high quality foundational learning opportunities in the virtual environment.
Your input - the practitioner voice from the field - is crucial for the Digital Divide project so that we can build a strong case to the province for additional supports to address the digital divide for learners accessing CALP programs, and so that we can offer a practical tool full of strategies and wise practices to support the successful delivery of remote, online, and blended learning programs.
In this video, the Digital Divide project manager, Monica Leong, describes the project's origins and goals, and invites practitioners from across Alberta's CALP system to participate. Watch for the first survey of the project to be released mid-June 2021.
