An interesting email from Thirteen / WNET Kids discussing the technology gap reached LinkEducation today.

Read the synopsis below and be sure to click through for details about ways to gain access to this educational content:
“Recent research shows children in lower income households have less access to computers, smartphones and tablets; therefore, they have less access to educational media. PBS,CPB and Head Start have started a new program to help fill this "app gap". By targeting community organizations [ex: Head Start] that serve low income families and are already equipped with mobile and tablet devices, this program aims to increase access to educational mobile content.
