This blog was established by the Digital Learning Lab to provide information that supports Black America’s efforts to close the Digital Divide. Its original name "HBCU-Levers" reflected its initial focus on HBCUs. Its scope has broadened to include community-based groups that enhance the computational thinking skills of Black Americans and the networks of successful Black techs who support each others’ efforts to achieve even greater success.
As tech innovations accelerate, it becomes increasingly difficulty to keep up with developments in tech sectors adjacent to one's own professional focus. Fortunately, excellent summaries and overviews of new developments appear from time to time. Unfortunately, these pieces are easily lost in the surging tidal wave of publications about the new developments. Therefore this page will list tweets that link to some of the DLL's favorites, a list that will be updated from time to time, but constrained by deletions as well as additions.
Readers' assessments of the value of our selections will be greatly appreciated ... :-)
