Perceptions of Experiences with the Digital Divide

The digital divide is an inequity in access to technology or the skills and knowledge necessary to use technology for personal gain. In the context of this study, examples include: not having computers or technology in classrooms, not being able to take computer skills or computer science classes, only using technology for skill-and-drill, lack of user support, and more. Traditionally, students who are racial-ethnic minorities, rural residents, or attended poor or failing schools are most often impacted.
