ROTW: Digital equity

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.
