To Tech or Not to Tech, so many questions
Kylene and Bob began the morning with a discussion about schools and their technology resources (and lack thereof), reminding us that while we need to adapt to a rapidly changing world, we need to use technology in a purposeful way. One of the things that jumped out at me is that Kylene noted that in schools with limited resources, the struggling learners are often cut out of the allocation. I think that is so sad since these students, who may not be the lawyers and engineers of the future. They may be the next machinists, clerks, and airline employees of the future and guess what? They will be in serious need of computer skills! How sad.
