AfterSchool Technology Toolkit

Learn strategies for providing youth access to technology outside of classroom hours in order to address the homework gap created by issues of access.

Research suggests that in order to successfully complete tech-based homework, students require daily access to devices, Internet connectivity in safe spaces for 2-3 hours.
