I have my disagreements in the details with Vicki Davis, but in the larger things I think we're of one mind. "We can't do everything. We're not omnipotent. We're not everywhere. But you know what? I don't teach these kids about technology just to let it be something they'll use one day, they should use it to make the world better NOW! Speak out NOW! Do something NOW! It is not just about technology for me... it is so much more. It is a mindset that a person in small town Camilla or small town anywhere doesn't have to have a small mind. And that a big mind in a small town can change the world through a broadband internet connection." See also Ed Tech Talk on the same subject.
