Web of Support: Families, Schools, and Communities: Bridging the Digital Divide. [Videotape].
North Central Regional Educational Lab., Oak Brook, IL.
Televisions, computers, cell phones, and pagers--technology seems to be everywhere. But for many, technology is not as commonplace as it seems. A vast divide, often called the "digital divide," exists in the availability of access for some individuals and communities. Addressing the issue of this digital divide means much more than getting boxes and wires into homes, classrooms, and communities. It means weaving a web of support that will connect families, schools, and communities to technology in strong, supportive, and mutually beneficial ways. This videotape introduces people who are involved with promising programs designed to bridge the digital divide with support systems. (MES)
