For the people who encourage kids to drop out:nytimes.com/2012/05/30/us/…
As access to devices has spread, children in poorer families are spending considerably more time than children from more well-off families using their television and gadgets to watch shows and videos, play games and connect on social networking sites, studies show.This growing time-wasting gap, policy makers and researchers say, is more a reflection of the ability of parents to monitor and limit how children use technology than of access to it.
who's to say what wasting time is.
aren't we wasting an awful lot of time, by saying we are freeing people up, yet still looking over their shoulder with a check list. how will that ever get us to breathtaking? to quality of life?
perhaps we haven't really set people free, perhaps we haven't gone deep enough on what equity really is, what success really is... perhaps we are the ones wasting time.
The new divide is such a cause of concern for the Federal Communications Commission that it is considering a proposal to spend $200 million to create a digital literacy corps. This group of hundreds, even thousands, of trainers would fan out to schools and libraries to teach productive uses of computers for parents, students and job seekers.
My editors felt that if innocents in Syria are dying for their freedom, the least we can do is look at the evidence of their suffering.
But now what?

Darcy I have this talent, and I have to see where it might be relevant to the curriculum, the same thing goes for technology.
