Closing the Digital Divide...

I was coming into work today and was met with a ton of graffiti. I thought to myself. 'Here, we go again!' You see, working on a college campus, there is always 'sidewalk art' as well as various other messages appearing everyday. It was not until I read the messages there were so largely placed in front of my building that I became intrigued. Take a look for yourself:

I knew that a colleague of mine, Emily Watts, routinely discusses the concept of the digital divide, especially with regard to students with disabilities, and that she taught last night. We talked on the phone earlier and she told me that after their class discussion, the class went out to 'spread the message'. How very cool!
