Revisiting the Digital Divide in the Context of a "Flattening" World
Subramony, Deepak Prem
Educational Technology, v54 n2 p3-9 Mar-Apr 2014
This article employs a variety of theoretical lenses to describe the nature and ramifications of the Digital Divide, which, the author states, continues to remain one of the biggest social challenges to confront the human race in modern times--even as technological advances, globalization, and other socioeconomic shifts are rendering digital media technologies nearly ubiquitous across many parts of the globe and multiple sections of society. In tackling the Divide, the author suggests a twin-pronged approach consisting of a voluntary dismantling of existing sociocultural privilege systems coupled with overcoming resistance through the widespread, systemic introduction of culturally responsive technology instruction.
