These Are Also “Today’s Students”

I wrote yesterday about a teacher’s blog post framed as being about “Today’s students” and offering advice about technology in schools, based on the experiences of these particular students.

These were some of wealthiest children in the country.

Today, an article came across Twitter about the lengths a district near me is going to provide the most basic access to technology to low-income students.

These are also “today’s students” and they do not have the privilege of being indifferent about technology.

It is not ok to render them invisible when talking about children very very different from them.
