My latest Report of the Week (ROTW) comes from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2007 Digital Equity Summit:

Here’s a quote from the report:

Educators must recognize connections between the digital
divide and achievement gaps in order to reframe digital equity as an essential
component of school improvement plans. However there are still a substantial
number of educators who only have a superficial understanding of the role of
technology in facilitating student learning. As a result, “teachers and, in some
cases, administrators lack willingness to embrace new technology and ways to use
digital content in learning environments,” asserted one participant. If they use
technology, it is part of an enrichment activity instead of an integrated
instructional component.

Happy reading!
