Breakout groups - Socio-Economic Status

There are fundamental assumptions of equal access; these assumptions may hurt equity rather than enhance it. CAP sites are not enough to bridge access gaps. The human issues are often forgotten when we get wrapped up in the hype of technology.

The education system is "requiring" technological access outside the home (for example; typed assignments, class registration), which will inevitably create larger gaps in equity.
