About the Program

To benefit fully from digital learning, California’s public schools need a technology infrastructure that can support a range of administrative and instructional tasks. What upgrades do schools need most, and how much will they cost? How can policymakers help ensure that all students have access to 21st-century learning tools? PPIC researcher Niu Gao will outline the findings of a new report, and a panel of experts and leaders will discuss challenges and opportunities.
