I don't think my concern was addressed well. I feel like Edgenuity didn't own the problem and instead placed the problem on the backs of the students. My concern is primarily about equity and I think Edgenuity should own the problem by finding a way to deliver content that is accessible to all students. My students in general have a hard time with the Performance Tasks format... which is missing key information/photos that they need to complete the task. When over half of my students can't download the content without it missing information, that becomes an equity issue. If they were in PDFs or something that all computers recognized that would be so helpful. However, Edgenuity just said that they could see all the content on their end and so that the problem is with how students are accessing it and gave detailed instructions (that middle schoolers would have a hard time following) on how to update software/computers/etc. I strongly believe that if they used a different format to share the performance tasks with students that most, if not all, students could access the material. As educators it is our responsibility to make things equitable. When I share documents with students, those documents are not missing key elements. Edgenuity creates documents that are not easy to access in their entirety and thus, sets up students to fail.
