The Digital Divide – What Is It, And How Does It Affect Our Schools?

The Digital Divide and how it plays a role in our schools is the topic of today’s video. I will give you a background to what the digital divide is, and talk about how it affects our educational system, and what can be done do bridge the gap.
I will talk about the three different types of divide, the gender divide, the social divide, and the universal access divide, what are the causes and how does it impact our schools.
I am also talking about the direct impact it can have in our classrooms, and what steps can be taken to overcome the differences between does who have and don’t have technology resources.

Do you have any topics about education that you want me to talk about? I have added a simple form for you to use to send me all your suggestions up in the top menu. I am just in the planning stage for February videos, so now would be a great time to submit your ideas and thoughts.
I am also trying to get back to some tutorials, mainly Google apps that I use frequently. The tutorials take much more time to film and edit, but they are so much fun, and I really want to create them. If you have any tutorials like that on your wish list you can submit suggestions using the same form.

Now till today’s video, as always if you like it I hope you will give it a thumb up and maybe share it with someone. The topic is more universal than just educational, but it is one that affects our students’ future and therefor it is important.
