6. A Modern Classroom
The divide created by unequal access to technology is crippling. Some schools and districts are struggling to acquire and use technology while others, such as schools participating in Iowa’s emerging 1:1 program are working together to form a collective mission and figure out the value in the visionary fledgling program.
“Imagine a global school that can be accessed with a click, in which anyone with internet access, anywhere, can offer a class on any subject imaginable and any students can take the class. One such platform is called Supercool School.” Also see “The illusion of disrupting vs. repairing the existing education market” by Bjoern Lasse Herrmann.
