Technology to the Rescue
T.H.E. Journal, v31 n6 p56 Jan 2004
One of the most dramatic examples of how invaluable a resource technology can be occurred immediately after Sept. 11, 2001. What is not as well known is how Avi Duvdevani, who was New York City's acting commissioner for the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications at the time of the attacks, his team, and numerous businesses and organizations were able to use technology to handle the crisis over the next few days. Literally within hours, an entire network was established to enable the various city agencies to pull their resources together and coordinate their activities. This brief article provides powerful examples of technology's capability to help in tragic circumstances and of the use of technology by educators, parents, and students on a personal level as a solution to overcome barriers and problems.
