I was thinking about the "Digital Divide" in terms of working with teachers and professional development. It seems to me that the divides exists between teachers and students. Our students are just fine with the technology around them. They walk right up to an interactive white board and starting working. They all have iPods, YouTube and MySpace accounts. Blogging is not a new concept to them, they do it every night, at home, on MySpace.

If teachers can just "let go" (of their old habits and attitudes about what "teaching" should look like) they'll be much happier with the equality of work their students produce.

. . . Just my two Pence worth
