My issue with Pottermore (edit:) is not really an issue with Pottermore but with information technology
I agree that eventually this will not be an issue. Don’t get me wrong, I love books, but I’m not anti-technological development and digitization. The problem, however, is what happens in the meantime.
School districts are incredibly diverse, and increasing use of technology in classrooms presents a rather large barrier to instruction in some homes. I don’t think this is a reason not to use technology. But to go in, guns blaring with tech-heavy policies and measures may hinder some students’ access to educational materials.
Sometimes I’m just afraid that we leave people without these amenities out of our discussions. Does everyone have access to Pottermore? No. Does everyone have access to online educational materials? No.
It becomes the responsibility of the school to provide these resources and get creative in serving every student equally regardless of socio-economic status.
Be who God made you to be and you will set the world on fire. - St. Catherine of Sienna
