Rural and urban schools often experience a digital divide, unable to keep pace with suburban counterparts. Technology inequities include lack of ‘tech savvy leadership,’ lack of resources and lack of ongoing professional development opportunities. Limited resources call for creative solutions such as community partnerships, and virtual experiences like digital field trips, augmented reality, and on-line instruction. Resources are recommended to help teachers integrate technology into the curriculum to support the varied and unique needs of a diverse group of students.
