What is Digital Literacy?
Digital Literacy helps bridge the gap between, teachers, parents, and students with digital understanding, especially when it comes to virtual learning.
The Five Components of Digital Literacy in Arkansas
Affordability: Arkansas is home to 487K students and 34K teachers in the state K-12 system, 27 % of whom receive assistance for lunch.
Content: In Spring 2020, 50% of Arkansas students participated in online learning.
Connectivity: 25% of Arkansas households do not have broadband internet access.
Device: Currently, there is a concerted effort to provide content, affordable broadband access and critical devices in the state.
Digital Understanding: However, families and teachers are in need of digital literacy to comfortably, effectively, and fully utilize these resources.
