Digital Democracy in Higher Education: Bridging the Digital Divide
Juniu, Susana
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v2 n1 Oct-Nov 2005
Susana Juniu's thought-provoking essay defines the new digital divide in higher education--a division of knowledge, experience, and needs that influence the integration of technology into the classroom. She acknowledges educators' frequently conflicting feelings about technology as well as the lack of communication between IT departments and faculty. Bridging the gap, she feels, is a matter of improving communication among the various groups invested in technological implementation by utilizing a circular model of communication that allows for feedback as well as a more democratic way of exploring technological and pedagogical issues. (Contains 2 figures and 2 exhibits.)
