The readings so far, some concerns.
After doing the readings for this class, the books make no mention of what to do if you plan on taking advantage of the tech-tools but are working in a district that many students have little or no computer access (let alone Internet access). A class wiki or blog (social bookmarking and RSS included) cannot help fully if the students cannot follow at home. Posting assignments online or having the students submit or edit or compose online (especially collaboratively) can only be efficient and effective if the students have access. I do not feel these books give teachers much advice on what to do for students who lack the resources (whether it be alternative assignment requirements or extended time or what...). Just a thought, but maybe one that needs addressed.
