There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.
"Environmental Science is an all-encompassing topic, which can make finding additional resources both daunting and fun. Depending on your approach and the age of your students, you can find a wealth of online and mobile apps to help you demonstrate the science behind environmental issues."
"Today’s post is going to go in a different direction than you might expect. We’re not talking about another professional category.

If you've got a smartphone or a tablet in your classroom, you're ready for the adventure to begin! By adventure I mean digital scavenger hunts.
Digital scavenger hunts should be carefully prepared so don’t rush into them. They’re fun and, if done properly, will get students excited to do another one.
