My current research interest examines the digital divide in an educational context. This research includes the social, cultural, and economic factors which led to the development of the digital divide, the present-day circumstances that allow the continuance of the digital divide, and the resulting impact. For decades, quantitative data has shown that the digital divide persists. While technology continues to evolve rapidly, the issues preventing the closure of the digital divide have remained the same. There are undeniable links between societal inequities, educational inequities, and the digital divide. Hermeneutic phenomenology is a qualitative methodology that brings the experiences of the impacted to the forefront and pairs well with the theoretical frameworks of equity theory, critical theory, and Critical Race Theory. The intent is to provide a new perspective of the digital divide and inspire further efforts that will lead to its closure.
