    Technological innovation and remote education can expand access to postsecondary education and training, but not everyone has the tools and opportunities to benefit. Many learners remain on the far side of the digital divide. Supporting students’ success in the “future of learning” will be critical as automation continues to reshape the labor market and workers navigate the economic recession and recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic. The future of learning must ensure equitable access to opportunity. This page features the Urban Institute’s work at the intersection of technology and postsecondary education and training. Our research focuses on the implications of these rapid shifts for learners and jobseekers who face barriers to educational and labor market success.
