    We have an online music curriculum that we sell as a product to individuals and organizations as a learning tool. Since we don't have the printing, warehouse and shipping costs associated with books this allows us to give the curriculum away for free to organizations that could afford to buy a full music curriculum. In meeting with these groups we were surprised to see the number of kids with smart phones. Fortunately, the schools/groups we've worked with also had WI-FI access available for the kids. We know this is not the case with all schools and that WI-FI access is nowhere close to 100% reach in homes. In our case, the decision to go digital with our material has given us a greater access to help.

    I'm afraid this is going to create a huge divide between low income schools and the more affluent. And, as a result- there will be an even larger skills gap. I'm all for innovation and tech in the classroom- but if a kid doesn't have internet at home- or a computer- how could that kid get work done?

      Very interesting point and so true. I believe in innovation, but I believe in the basics when it comes to education like actual books. It's better for kids to understand the resources they have, like a library, rather than rely heavily on technology. Schools will struggle to keep up with all the new developments. Stick with the basics in my opinion.
