Excellent idea. Not just for kiddies either. But it does presuppose computers and IT resources, which aren't necessarily available in developing countries. That is the filter I apply as our Foundation funds girls' education in those communities.

The World Digital Library is an impressive tool that features information regarding subjects matters from all over the world. The site links to digital images with information and analysis regarding various artwork and artists. Not all of the information on the site relates to Art and Art History, but much of the informaiton provided is useful for research purposes. The collection places the most emphasis on Europe, South America, and the Middle East.

New Survey: Digital Divide Is 'Major Challenge' In Teaching Low-Income Students | Huff Post Tech

New Survey: Digital Divide Is 'Major Challenge' In Teaching Low-Income Students | Huff Post Tech | ICT | Scoop.it

On Thursday, Pew released a report called "How Teachers Are Using Technology at Home and in Their Classrooms," which surveyed 2,462 American schoolteachers about digital media use in their classrooms. Pew's most disturbing finding: Low-income students disproportionally lack access to broadband Internet at school and at home, a trend teachers say is frustrating for students -- and limits teachers' own capabilities in the classroom.

 

The survey, which reaffirms other findings on the digital divide, reveals that 56 percent of teachers who work with low-income students say that their students' lack of access to digital technology is a "major challenge" to using quality online resources in their lessons. The Washington Post, which reported on the findings earlier Thursday, notes that 3 percent of low-income students have access to Internet at home, in contrast to 50 percent of higher-income students.

 

Those without available Internet at home may take creative measures to gain online access: Earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal reported on low-income students with no home Internet who used the Wi-Fi provided by McDonald's and Starbucks for schoolwork. Other students may use local public libraries for Internet access, but many libraries have closed due to a lack of funds. Those that remain may have computer time limits.

 

Low-income school districts trying to keep their students connected are themselves increasingly resorting to creative measures. David Akridge, the technology director for the public school system in Mobile County, Ala., told the Wall Street Journal that he is going to map Mobile County's free public Wi-Fi and plans to encourage nearby businesses to create more hotspots for students. "That's how we need to do it now," he told the paper. "But I don't think it's a permanent solution to have everyone go to businesses to do that."
