Funding Technology: Does It Make Cents?
Young Children, v58 n6 p28-33 Nov 2003
What is the role of early education programs in bridging the digital divide-helping all children become skilled technology users? Blagojevic addresses three issues: access, literacy/learning, and content. She discusses finding or funding computers for the classroom (access) and professional development to support teachers' computer skills (literacy and learning) so they can create developmentally appropriate ways for children to use technology (content). The article lists informative Web sites and is available online in Beyond the Journal, November 2003.
