Twenty-three nationally known educators discuss educational technology and diversity, provide historical and philosophical insights into digital divide issues, and offer practical suggestions for teachers, administrators, and policy-makers. This text is designed to help preservice teachers and future educational leaders understand complex technology issues and prepare them to meet whatever challenges prevent their students from having full access to a quality education through technology. Toward Digital Equity helps educators understand the current state of technology in education and the Digital Dividewhat it is, how it emerged, current trends, and potential solutions. It discusses how schools acquire hardware, software, and connectivity, and why some schools experience such success in these endeavors while others are left heartbreakingly behind. Most importantly, it examines the most current research in the effectiveness of technology and pedagogy in diverse settings to make suggestions on how teachers can create powerful learning environments for all students.Solomon, Gwen is the author of 'Toward Digital Equity Bridging the Divide in Education', published 2002 under ISBN 9780205360550 and ISBN 0205360556.
