Ed Technology and Social Justice

With gratitude , I read Scott McLeod’s post on educational technology as a social justice issue that so clearly articulates some of the issues that I grappled with a few weeks ago.

Scott quotes “someone” (one of my favorite authors, also…) as saying

“poor kids have things done to them by computers, while affluent kids get to do things with computers.”

Here’s to much more deliberation about these issues.

UPDATE:

Scott also posted these thoughts on his own Dangerously Irrelevant blog.
