Stepping Out on the Digital Limb
Today even though we have had the courage to step out on that digital limb, we still have yet to cross that tra-digital divide; the tra-digital divide that separates digital tools in isolation of best instructional practices.

These are the tra-digital classrooms where mashups of effective teaching practices coincide seamlessly with the net generation's tools for learning.
