I started out Day Two of the International Society for Technology in Education’s annual conference in the Exhibit Hall. Four hours later, I had visited less than half of the exhibitors.
When I stopped by the Universal Service Administrative Company booth, it was a trip down memory lane.
I was a member of the coalition that advocated for affordable telecommunications and Internet access for schools and libraries, the E-Rate, in the Telecommunications Act of 1996.
In the era of Web 2.0, Internet access alone is not enough. I took this photo in the ISTE Press Room.
As I looked out over the Exhibit Hall, I got the blues knowing that classrooms with high concentrations of underserved students have access to few, if any, interactive tools and solutions.
