The Digital Equity Toolkit

Pubblicato su The National Institute for Community Innovations lunedì 4 marzo 2002

A guide for educators who wants to integrate e-mail and the Internet into their classroom or project. The toolkit points educators to free, high quality resources that help address the digital divide in the classroom and community. The toolkit, edited by Joy Wallace, senior associate at the National Institute for Community Innovations, is made possible in part through funding from the U.S. Department of Education’s PT3 (Preparing Tomorrow’s Teachers to use Technology) and Technology Innovation Challenge Grant programs.

We are committed to continually enhancing the toolkit’s contents; therefore, you
may want to consider revisiting the toolkit at least monthly as new resources
are added each week. Printed copies of the toolkit have been made available through
funding generously provided by the AOL Time Warner Foundation, a leader in bridging
the digital divide.
