ASU+GSV: Deborah Quazzo on the digital divide

WorkingNation interviews leaders in public, private, and nonprofit spheres attending the ASU+GSV Virtual Summit as part of our #WorkingNationOverheard campaign

Made more glaring by COVID-19, the digital divide impacted students and their ability to learn. With online learning, educators were forced to face the inequity and do something about it.

WorkingNation interviewed Deborah Quazzo, the co-founder of the ASU+GSV Summit and a managing partner at GSV Ventures, for #WorkingNationOverheard as a media partner with ASU+GSV’s Virtual Summit 2020, held September 29 through October 1+October 8. You can watch all of the interviews on our YouTube channel.

“I think you’re going to see some real innovation around how to make learning online more engaging,” says Quazzo. “I think there were a number of organizations that were doing that well. The vast majority were not. I think you’re going to see both technological innovations in terms of people improving upon the zoom experience, for example, taking zoom and building off of it.”

This year’s summit examines some of the innovators working to improve digital learning and the teaching experience.
