In this video, administrators and teachers from Meridian, Idaho talk about how access to technology and always available connectivity can help close the equity gap in learning. Three schools in the West Ada School District are participating in the project, and they’re opening up a new avenue of learning for their students. It’s an opportunity not only for students to learn in new ways, but for them to bring technology into their homes and help teach their families, too.

“Having access to more knowledge is always going to empower students.” – Chris Spencer, teacher
