Expanding and Contracting the TECH-Levers blog

Last update: Thursday 2/15/18

DLL Editor's note -- The TECH-Levers blog has evolved by expanding its scope from its initial focus on the STEM-related efforts of HBCUs ... to STEM-related efforts in the broader higher education sector ... to the even broader efforts of Black entrepreneurs and allied community activists to close the digital divide. In the next few months the blog will expand yet again, but it will also contract.

The Ends of ODDs -- Other Digital Divides

Last update: Thursday 2/8/18

Like most Black advocates of ed tech, I maintained a long-time focus on closing the so-called "Digital Divide". As I use this term, it refers to the gap between the digital haves and have-nots, too many of whom are Black Americans. I firmly believed that educational technology would provide the leverage required to bridge this gap.
