Our program has a real focus and passion for digital learning. When our students go on to middle school and specialized high schools, they’re ready and they’re equipped equally to their peers who might come from more privileged backgrounds.
Eric Gurna, President and CEO, LA’s BEST AfterSchool Enrichment Program, Los Angeles, CA
Staff training in digital learning is desperately needed. The afterschool workforce doesn't have coding skills, or confidence to do it. We are not comfortable teaching this. Many of us are consumers of technology. We need to make a dynamic shift with how we look at technology in education.
Jodi Ahrendson Miller, Program Manager, Kids, Inc., Sioux Falls, SD
As the demands placed on the education system go beyond what teachers and schools can do alone, afterschool programs have become even more critical. Afterschool practitioners need tools, training and networks to create innovative, tech-integrated programs that support and amplify student learning.
