The topic for a course I'm teaching this week is one of the NH 610 requirements on certified teachers which simply states that in elementary education, teachers will have knowledge of how to provide equal access to the digital world. I'm curious what this means to you. I know what it means to me, but thought it an interesting topic of conversation.
One one hand, it could mean that the teacher must physically provide access within the lesson or classroom. But would that mean it needs to extend beyond? Would an assignment (even one that isn't required to do online) that could be done online provide an unfair advantage to those without access at home?
On the other hand, it could mean knowledge, just having a car doesn't mean that you have access to the highway system, you need to know how to use it.
What does it mean to you?
