Digital Technology is exciting and at the forefront of much of our daily lives. It includes the internet, computers, mobile devices, software, and more. Most of us take it for granted. However, these technologies are not in everyone's grasp. Whether they cannot afford it or don't understand it, ensuring everyone has access to new technologies is critical to the overall success of society. As technology continues to evolve we must stay aware of the growing digital divide between those who are connected and those who are not, and diligently work toward bridging the gap.
When we bridge the digital divide everyone benefits.
How can we can bridge the digital divide?
1. Increase access to those who don't have it, this is especially important with children.
