Online Education and Digital Divide

Digital Education is really coming along thanks to the US Military and their expenditures in the IT Framework to make training available. The IT companies doing this training are in fact able to pass on this technology to the private sector immediately and it is helping us with the digital divide.

The United States Navy is trying many of the online Internet learning some of which we have discussed here on this site: Online Training by the US Navy is very good;

We are very much for schools. I have always supported schools:

But we are in a new era and I really believe we can do more to educate our people faster and cheaper than ever before if we use the tools of modern technology. I support ideas from Bill Gates on this issue, I believe in The First Lady’s strong commitment to education, I have always admired University of PHX and their online program and I am excited to see the bi-lateral support on the NO Child Left behind program. I am totally 100% behind the efforts to make this program work and to get behind problems of the past in education and move into the new era with these new tools.

I am glad to see that the US Military is moving forward and being efficient with taxpayer’s money, so that they have more money for new ships and planes and research and development to keep us strong and safe. Good Move, great work on this. Isn’t it great when we can get everyone on the same page and propel the future of mankind to our destiny? Think on this.
