This month marks 2 years into the Covid-19 pandemic. With no doubt, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused worldwide disruptions in education, which have exacerbated inequalities. In fact, technological and other barriers have made it more difficult for students of color to stay engaged in virtual schools (Office of Civil Rights, 2021). As a result, recent test scores in mathematics and reading for students in grades 3-8 indicate declines during the pandemic with growing gaps between students in low-poverty and high-poverty schools (Kuhfeld et al., 2022). Yet as we begin to return to some form of normalcy, we have a unique opportunity to take stock of these challenges and rethink our schools, including the role that technology can play in supporting teaching and learning amidst growing concerns of teacher shortages.
