Supplemental Sources

Supplemental sources provide a variety of resources on educational technology. 

  1. "Connecting Kids to Technology: Challenges and Opportunities," (PDF format)

from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, examines the demographics of the digital divide, discusses some implications of current trends, and highlights a few efforts to bridge the divide and provide a level playing field for all children. As computer ownership has become more affordable, families with children are more likely than ever to own a computer and be connected to the Internet. The Snapshot points out while all boats are rising, poor and minority kids are playing catch-up to their more affluent, white peers - both at home and in the classroom. Further, while technical infrastructure is critical, basic training is also necessary to remove barriers - such as low levels of literacy and lack of computer experience - that hinder effective use of technology by underserved youth.
