challenges, Dr. Honey suggested, are the issues of equity and access, which need to be acknowledged in any discussion of ICT and education. She reminded the audience that Karen’s Pittman’s paper (see Appendix A) for the meeting noted that roughly one-third of all teenagers in the United States do not graduate from high school (50 percent of all teens of color do not graduate).

Honey pointed out that while there are some very real disconnects in all of our professional contexts, at this workshop we want to keep our focus on the appropriateness of the ICT fluency framework as a template to guide how ICT is operationalized in the high schools. “This meeting is really about creating a blueprint to help people move forward,” she concluded.
