From Forty-to-One to One-to-One: Eliminating the Digital Divide and Making Equity Actionable
Mucetti, Rosanna
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v28 p28-36 Oct 2017
This article shows how the adoption of technology may serve as a catalyst for deeper, systemic reforms. This article shares a local case of organizational learning in which a midsize California urban school district faithfully acted on a technology goal nested in its strategic plan. Through this experience, the school district demonstrated various organizational behaviors worth considering when implementing a large-scale technology initiative. First, the San Leandro Unified School District (SLUSD) provides evidence of an organization adopting technology and eliminating the digital divide to make the concept of equity actionable for students, families, and staff. Second, this case portrays how the structural, tangible changes brought forth through technology adoption in an entire school district can serve as a foundation for more complex reforms. Third, SLUSD's story exemplifies how sustaining technology success can be attained through an intentional collaborative partnership at the local level.
