Poor Students Face Digital Divide in How Teachers Learn to Use Tech

Poor Students Face Digital Divide in How Teachers Learn to Use Tech | Ethical Issues In Technology | Scoop.it

What distinguishes the most innovative schools is what students and teachers do with the technology they have. Parents want their children prepared to shape the future, not get steamrolled by it.

Juanita Amiel Garcia's curator insight, September 8, 12:00 AM

If this is true in US, then how much more so on a global scale?

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, September 20, 8:33 AM

I talked to a brand new teacher recently who wondered why she'd bothered to go to college since her education program prepared her for very little of what actually happens in her school, a Title 1 school. She has little to no familiarity with technology or even where to go to find resources to figure out what's best to use when. When she does try to research something, she is overwhelmed by the options. She is not alone. A tech coach can help provided the tech coach isn't split between numerous buildings and provided the tech coach has time and opportunity to research other options and knows how to ask teachers questions about what they need and want, especially since most teachers don't know what they don't know. It's a conundrum not easily solved by working with an edtech consultant, though that is a solution. You can find me on Twitter @elainej or check out my web site: http://www.p20partners.com. I can help.

Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary, has been told to take “urgent” action to prevent another devastating cyber attack on the NHS after a leaked internal report revealed a string of digital security failings in the health service. The report, by NHS Digital’s head of security operations, Chris Flynn, said there was a “false sense of security” among staff over cyber threats and highlighted a range of security failings, including weak passwords and poorly protected patient data.
