Understanding the Complex Dimensions of the Digital Divide: Lessons Learned in the Alaskan Arctic
Subramony, Deepak Prem
Journal of Negro Education, v76 n1 p57 Win 2007
An ethnographic case study of Inupiat Eskimo in the Alaskan Arctic has provided insights into the complex nature of the sociological issues surrounding equitable access to technology tools and skills, which are referred to as the digital divide. These people can overcome the digital divide if they get the basic ready access to hardware and software and also by developing skill levels in crucial technologies among students.
