The Kansas City Coalition for Digital Inclusion (KCCDI) is an open, collaborative group of organizations who foster digital equity and access to technology for Kansas City metro communities. KCCDI meets monthly on the first Friday of every month to hear about the work of local digital inclusion practitioners, and share information about upcoming opportunities in the digital inclusion space.


Digital Divide Simulation Overview and Feedback Session–KC Digital Drive
The Digital Divide Simulation is a “day in the life” interactive, immersive experience to move participants from being unaware of the extent of the difficulties of an analog life in a digital world to appreciating what it’s like to live without home internet access, digital skills and a device by role-playing living a “month” on the wrong side of the digital side of the digital divide. KC Digital Drive will present the background of the simulation as well as seek suggestions for improvements and how digital inclusion practitioners and advocates can best leverage it to move digital equity forward in the region and beyond.

  • Overview of simulation (history, development, first event)–5 minutes
  • Show video–3 minutes
  • Members review persona packets and discuss in pairs–15 minutes
  • Members share feedback and discuss ideas for how to implement this experience in the community–15 minutes


The April KCCDI meeting will be held virtually on Friday, April 5th 2024.
