Welcome to equip! Learn about the mission behind this editorial and how you can join the guest writer program.

 

What is equip?

equip is an editorial featuring the innovative work of educators in all things tech to help teach, prepare, and empower students to thrive in a connected and digital world.

Creating 21st century citizens, thinkers, and creators is vital for schools in ensuring students are prepared for online assessments with foundational computer skills; for high school, college, and careers with experience using modern applications; for an online presence with knowledge of how to act appropriately and safely on the internet; and for future problem-solving and innovation with computational thinking aptitude and readiness.

equip is not a series of listicles on vague best practices or intangible strategies ill-designed for the busy educator. Instead, equip is an editorial created, sustained, and inspired by educators, featuring:

  • educator-written insights for incorporating vital technology skills in classrooms, schools, and districts;
  • research that applies to program implementation, instruction, assessment, and growth; and
  • resources ranging from learning activities to program planning that complement educators' work.

Together, we can equip our peers to nurture a connected and digital future.
