For Low-Income Kids, Access to Devices Could Be the Equalizer

For Low-Income Kids, Access to Devices Could Be the Equalizer | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

The Internet is about empowerment. If we take away this access because we think certain people aren’t going to use it right, we’re no better than governments who take away voting rights from minorities.

Some good points in here. Still shocked that my daughter isn't allowed to take her mobile phone to school.

This is certainly something to think about when approaching teaching and learning in Urban area
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, March 20, 2013 11:07 AM
My husband and I work in rural areas in Virginia and there is often a sign at the front door of the school. So sad because the libraries are not open late, and many of the schools prohibit most of the Internet.

Is technology killing school? Should it?

Is technology killing school? Should it? | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Gosh, all this hurts my brain! I’m captivated by the promise that Sugata Mitra seems to offer, but seriously alarmed (as always) by people who say we don’t need schools (because they have served humanity well when they have worked, it seems to me – though there is, of course, much that can be done better). I find the notion that all children will learn well with and from each other somewhat idealistic. And yet the idea that learning can come from a sense of wondrous enquiry is deeply attractive to me.

Is technology here in our classrooms? Are we progressing in baby steps...or at all? Learning still happens F2F.
