Teaching middle school is not for the faint of heart. But if you're called to do it, you know there's nothing else quite like it. Join us in discussing what works - and what doesn't.

The Digital Divide is Still A Problem

Bonnie Bracey Sutton Teacher Agent of Change, Power of US Foundation

Vic Sutton and I are part of two teacher groups and we work the digital divide and social justice areas.
We have just been to a lot of high tech workshops which prompted this blog on the continuing digital divide.

Hi Bonnie:

Digital divide is an issue, not only in the US, but in the rest of the world. Over 2/3 of the global population is still not connected, and even in Europe most of the countries do not have a penetration above 70%. My blog, Intelligent Inclusion, is also focusing on the importance of connectivity for learning. Initiatives, like Kahn Academy, are making a difference, and we need to secure that more people have access to it. Check the post, http://intelligentinclusion.com/2012/06/remote-learning-done-properly-ka... . Cheers, Caetano
