Falling Behind: A Technology Crisis Facing Minority Students.
Pearson, Tamara
The digital divide is a commonly used term in today's society, but few truly understand the impact that it has on minority students. This issue is one that goes beyond access to technology, but encompasses issues of equity in use. This paper examines the data on home and school computer use by minority students. It discusses the College Reach-Out Program (CROP), a collaborative effort of 3 mid-Florida institutions of higher education; the CROP 2000 Technology Project, including some student feedback; and the Our Kids After-School Program at the Community Technology Center, Jacob Riis Neighborhood Settlement House, 2 programs which are giving minority at-risk students non-traditional experiences with technology.
