Description: Digital Solidarity in Education is a book for educators, scholars, and students interested in better understanding both the role technology can play in schools in the future and its potential for strengthening communities, optimizing the effects of globalization, and providing access to those who have suffered from inequities in the past. In order to compete academically with their global counterparts, it is imperative that schools in the United States prioritize the engagement and mobilization of students from diverse racial, ethnic, linguistic, and economic backgrounds, and with giftedness and/or disabilities, to utilize and apply technologies. This powerful book introduces innovative technological programs including virtual schools, e-tutoring, and interactive online communities for K-12 students that can:• increase students' knowledge and understanding of advanced concepts while reinforcing their basic skills;• reinforce students' communication in their first language while introducing second and third language possibilities;• nurture students' capabilities to think analytically, while using creative and innovative ideas to think simultaneously outside of the box. Readers will visit a virtual elementary school and learn how diverse populations of students can be provided with the necessary technological tools to succeed academically. The experienced author team provides information about how collaborative partners from the private sector can assist school systems and educators in creating access for all students to technological innovations, with a goal of improving and increasing individual opportunities for future college and career success. This timely yet unique contribution delicately incorporates theoretical scholarship and research with personal perspectives and experiences of practitioners in the field. The result is a volume that shares with readers both the nuts and bolts of using technology in education, and the importance of doing so.
