Digital Equity Act of 2019

We’ve not posted much on this blog lately, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! Before we give you a brief update on our activities, we want to you know about the Digital Equity Act of 2019.

The Digital Equity Act was introduced into the US Senate by Sen. Murray, Patty (D-WA).  The house bill will be introduced soon by US Representative Jerry McNerney’s (D-CA).  The Digital Equity Act supports a diverse array of digital equity projects at the state and local level to help close the digital divide.  The National Digital Inclusion Alliance created the Digital Equity Act website as a way to get out information about the act.

And now a little bit about what we’ve been doing!

We’ve been hard at work writing for publications, and we’ll be sure to let you know when those come out. We’ve also been presenting at conferences and thinking about future projects as well as moving forward on our work on the 21CLEO project that investigates the experiences of incumbent workers as they engage and persist in employer supported learning opportunities.  Through this work we intende to capture and elevate the voices of the working learners.  Additionally, we are striving to cross silos and build a culture of inquiry. To that end, we have a blog where we are regularly posting updates about our work and inviting comments. Take a trip over to the 21CLEO to join the conversation.
