Afterschool programs have an important role in bridging the digital divide. Learn how this toolkit will help you make a difference for the students your program serves.


  • What are your attitudes about integrating technology into your afterschool programming? Why?
  • How is your program currently using technology?
  • What are you hoping to learn and do after reading this Afterschool Tech Toolkit and participating in the training?

As John Dewey said, “You cannot teach today the same way you did yesterday to prepare students for tomorrow.” You know technology is here to stay, but you may not have considered technology’s place in afterschool.

Welcome to the Afterschool Tech Toolkit! Here you will find resources and actions to enhance your current programming so you can provide students with powerful access to technology outside of the school day. You will also be able to access hands-on training that will help you take what you’ve read and put it into action.
