Technology continues to play an increasingly integral part in education, but making it equally available for minority students still remains a challenge. This new site from the International Society for Technology in Education was conceived as a forum for teachers in minority communities to share ideas, voice concerns, and discuss ways to better the quality of education among some of America’s least-privileged students. The site features a Live Chat section where educators can go to pool resources, get answers to pressing questions, and exchange suggestions about how to advance educational opportunities for minority students. To keep up on current trends and evolving issues, minority educators can use the site’s Article Share feature to read papers written by peers and post findings of their own for review. A Resource link provides access to a number of sites focused on helping educators breach the digital divide. The site also contains a comprehensive directory of education leaders involved in the minority community—including short biographies and contact information—in its Leadership Bureau. Finally, registered members can access any number of archived eMail messages from other members, allowing them to make more conscious, well-informed decisions.
