This site presented a forum for dialogue between students from around the world about their use of technology. The “digital divide” was not between the participants as they all seemed to be at a sophisticated level of technology use. The “digital divide” was a curricular topic that participants considered. As a forum for international exchange, this site would have been an effective cross cultural exchange of information in 1999 when it was created in preparation for the WTO talks in Seattle. It does contain lesson plans that are still helpful for students.

This is my comment provided after visiting this site on Merlot: . Comment refers to learning object obtained at site: I found useful ideas about curriculum that could be implemented all around the globe. This Digital Divide Project encompasses culture, trade and technology. This is truly global project that deals with curriculum for Middle Schools and High Schools using online discussion boards for sharing ideas, perspectives, and thoughts. The idea of involving the audience (Middle and High School students) to discuss issues on a global level presents one important step to bridging the digital divide and increasing accessibility. The benefits of this site are ability to apply the same curriculum to worldwide audience, exchange of experience dealing with the same curriculum to different background and learning style of audience, etc.The main weakness can be limited accessibility. I am personally interested to see how audience, the students from different part of the world are dealing with the topics that they are not familiar with.
