We have as a field substantially explored the ways in which gender plays in access to technology. . We have even, I think to our discredit, looked at the ways in which poor people use the computers they do have and have decided that they use them poorly! But I want to argue that these issues — gender and technology, pedagogical uses of technology — need to be addressed in the context of the relationship between wealth/class and access to technology. In the case of some minorities in America, wealth and minority status are overlapping categories: if you are black or of Hispanic origin in America, you are more likely to be poor than if you are not .

We do not generally think of them as intimately entwined with social and biological lives. But literacy technologies, such as pen and paper, index cards, computer databases, word processors, networks, e-mail, and hypertext, are also ideological tools; they are designed, accessed, interpreted, and used to further purposes that embody social values. More than mechanistic, they are organic, because they merge with our social, physical, and psychological beings. Thus, we need to look more closely at how technologies are realized in given settings.

In the field of education, for example, many have trouble connecting what they know of their own learning processes, or the experiences from their own teaching with the canonical articles and theories they are given in university courses.
