NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Educators are learning the “C” of the basic ABCs may stand for the most important teaching tool of all – connectivity, said New Rochelle schools Superintendent Brian Osborne in an article published in the Huffington Post.

Access to technology, especially the Internet, was the focus of remarks made by President Barack Obama when he recently visited a remote village in Alaska, Osborne wrote in the piece.

Obama decried the fact, Osborne said, that less than 40 percent of American schools are able to effectively use technology in the classroom.

For children who don’t have access to the Internet at home, having it at school can make all the difference, Osborne wrote.

New Rochelle schools are working to “narrow the digital divide,” the superintendent said in the article.

The superintendent urged fellow educators to use whatever technological resources they have to further bridge the “digital divide.”
