I work in a district where technology is hard to access for several reasons.
1. Access to laptop carts is not often easy.
2. Laptops have frequent problems.
3. Wifi does not work.
4. We don't look at best options.
For example, all students in my wife's elementary school district have a closed network for students to use gmail and google docs. It is something we are not examining in my K-12 district. I am not being a pessimist. I am realistic and honest. I want to incorporate things like have students create prezis, developing PLN's, etc but it doesn't appear feasible all the time. Plus I have students who do not have internet access at home; not many without access, but some.
