What Digital Divide?
While there has been a ton of hype about the “digital divide”, where those in poorer communities in the US would miss out on the benefits of computers and the internet, it appears that things aren’t nearly as bad as predicted. Most students today, even in the poorest schools, have some sort of access to the internet, and many in poorer communities say that while there is some lag in education and training on computers, there are opportunities to learn. It’s not a case of people being shut out from opportunities, but one where the opportunities took a little longer to get there. Hopefully, over time, this gap will continue to disappear. 3 Comments | Leave a Comment..
