NCDEThe Collaborative was co-founded in 2013 as the Digital Opportunity Consortium, by co-chairs Dr. Robert McLaughlin and Dr. Paul Resta.

NCDE works to address the compelling need to speak to potential investors with one voice about why and how to approach digital equity investments and initiatives systematically. The original Digital Opportunity Consortium continues to be powered entirely by volunteers. Our aim is to close the digital divide at home for the nation's low-income schoolchildren and their families. We also help educators and those who prepare future educators and school leaders to learn about essential technology resources, how to use them in teaching and learning, and how to ensure all students enjoy full access to them. We partner with communities, states, professional associations, companies, schools and preparation programs to provide digital access at home at the lowest possible cost to the most essential learning technology resources including broadband, computing devices, educational content across the PreK-12 curriculum, ongoing tech support, and low-interest financing even for families with poor or no credit.

Christa McAuliffe Sabatical
Christa McAuliffe, a social studies teacher at Concord High School, touched the nation when she was chosen from among 10,000 applicants to be the first teacher in space. After her tragic death in the Challenger space shuttle launch of 1986, Governor John Sununu established, with funding from the state legislature and private contributions, a trust to support this program as a way to memorialize Christa. Each year, the program—administered by the Charitable Foundation—awards a year-long leave of absence to an exceptional New Hampshire public school teacher. The sabbatical provides the teacher with the time, space, and funding to explore, through a self-designed project, new ideas and ways to enhance classroom teaching.
