School on Wheels students overwhelmingly lack regular access to information and communication technology. This not only contributes to their learning gaps, but can actually leave them without key 21st Century skills that many of their peers possess. This webinar will walk you through the ways you can help your student(s) bridge the Digital Divide with School on Wheels resources. We’ll go over how to use online programs to help your student learn math, reading, computer science, and more; how to implement our Digital Literacy curriculum; and extra special online learning opportunities for School on Wheels students.

As the Online Tutoring Coordinator, she connects students who need extra help or live outside of the SOW service area with tutors via video and audio chat. She also develops programming to build our students’ technology skills, and makes sure to stay on top of the latest trends in education technology.
