I had no idea there were so many tools available to allow small groups of people to interact together in real-time.  These could be used for small group discussions with students or with other faculty.

How to Bridge the Digital Divide with Wireless | Gigabit Nation on BlogTalk Radio

How to Bridge the Digital Divide with Wireless | Gigabit Nation on BlogTalk Radio | Urban Science Education | Scoop.it

Gigabit broadband is going to expand the digital divide in some areas, at least in the short term, because gigs go where the money is. Wireless enjoys some advantages in costs and quick deployment that make it a valuable digital inclusion tool for underserved communities today and a backup solution for tomorrow.

 

Tony Schloss, Director of Community Initiatives for the Red Hook Initiative in Brooklyn, NY, is using a wireless mesh network as a job creator and a tool for economic development. Nearly half of economic development pros in a recent survey believe broadband networks can be used to encourage individual entrepreneurship among underserved constituents. Schloss tells listeners how they can achieve these objectives in their communities.

 

Listeners get an overview of how to raise money and deploy wireless technology, mobilize people to organize and participate in digital programs, help develop basic applications, create community-centric content and keep operations going. Schloss also discusses some of Red Hook's successes working with youths and what steps communities can take to replicate these.

Young people today are instant messengers, gamers, photo sharers and supreme multitaskers. But while they use the technology tools available to them 24/7, they are struggling to sort fact from fiction, think critically, decipher cultural inferences, detect commercial intent and analyze social implications. All of which makes them extremely vulnerable to the overwhelming amount of information they have access to

From the post: "It is our job as educators and content producers to encourage kids to be capable, global citizens in a digital age. Integrating a news story into your classroom everyday not only sparks important conversations, but encourages students to create and analyze their own media responses, provides a basis for asking questions and is a seamless, natural way to incorporate CCSS nonfiction content into your daily lesson plan."
