My latest Report of the Week (ROTW) comes from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2007 Digital Equity Summit:
Here's a quote from the report:
Educators must recognize connections between the digital divide and achievement gaps in order to reframe digital equity as an essential component of school improvement plans. However there are still a substantial number of educators who only have a superficial understanding of the role of technology in facilitating student learning. As a result, "teachers and, in some cases, administrators lack willingness to embrace new technology and ways to use digital content in learning environments," asserted one participant. If they use technology, it is part of an enrichment activity instead of an integrated instructional component.
