Quote of the Week

Diversity Matters: …digital media today reflect the real world as children perceive it. Cultural diversity must, therefore, be built into digital media, not added later as an afterthought. Cultures should be represented richly and with integrity and dignity. This is another potential opportunity for children to learn about the world through screen media.
