Access in the digital era has many meanings: Access to hardware, software and connectivity to the Internet; 
access to meaningful, high quality, culturally relevant content in local 
languages; access to creating, sharing, and exchanging digital content; access to educators who know how to use digital tools and resources; access to high-quality research on the application of digital technologies to 
enhance learning (Resta & Laferrière, 2008). Our community adds: Access to a theory-based community of designers of the technology/pedagogy in use. The Knowledge Building Summer Institute (KBSI 2017) Making a Difference in Knowledge Building Communities’ Thinking will be held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning “Making a Difference: Prioritizing Equity and Access in CSCL”, June 18-22, 2017, Philadelphia, USA.
