The goal of this program is to support low-income, underserved families and students, and help them achieve academic success by giving them the opportunity to learn new technological and communication skills. As part of our multimedia program, we also provide a digital storytelling and photo voice workshops, which seeks to teach students how to use audiovisual communication tools (such as photography, audio and video editing, as well as notions of script) so that they can self-represent and represent their community in a free, inclusive and creative way. We understand that technology can also be used to combat the achievement gap for all underserved communities. As the demand for bilingual apps and online resources increases, so does the supply. Technology can be used to help young children learn and can help fill in the gaps where teachers and parents may be lacking. They can also be a good way to get parents more involved in their children’s education. Until the digital divide is fully closed, technology will be just another thing that adds to the achievement gap for Latinos and Latinas in America.
