Technology affects what we know about the world around us, how we interact with friends and how we perform in school and in the workplace. 

In an era where internet and technology use are so common, it may be surprising that many have little or no access to either. The digital divide, or the gap between students who have access to technology and those who don’'t, is widening. But schools and programs, such as the Digital Curriculum through My Tomorrow at Cincinnati Public Schools, are working to close that gap.

Here to talk about the digital divide and how to help more students gain access to technology are Deputy Superintendent and Head of the My Tomorrow Initiative at Cincinnati Public Schools, Laura Mitchell; and Cincinnati Public Schools Chief Information Officer, Sarah Trimble-Oliver.
