Resources with UNDA Digital
Bridging the digital divide will require more than devices and connectivity. We must also equip teachers with the skills, tools, and training they need to use that technology effectively in the classroom. That’s why we launched the UNDA Digital Literacy—a pilot that’s part of our ongoing commitment to ensure the benefits of technology reach every classroom. The program supports high-need districts as they launch and grow technology coaching programs. Through our innovation approach Digital Literacy Toolkits model, our instructors provide personalized work alongside parent’s to help them identify and implement innovative technology practices in their businesses.
Supporting undeserved schools and communities
Hundreds of education applications work with Google Classroom. These integrations save teachers and students time, and make it seamless to share information between Classroom and their favorite apps.
Helping equip the next generation with future skills
More than 65 percent of learners will work in jobs that don’t even exist today, but many aren’t yet developing the problem-solving skills and basic digital competencies they’ll need to be prepared for that future. We are providing grant funding to nonprofits, building programs to expand access to computer science education, and helping train more female and underrepresented students in computational thinking. It’s our goal to prepare every learner with the adaptive skills they need to tackle the future’s biggest challenges.
