Digital Learning Apartheid

Digital Learning Apartheid: “Historically, the early concerns and discussions of the digital divide assumed that the most important issue was to provide access for all learners via infrastructural improvements to our country’s public schools…What was neither anticipated nor addressed then, nor is being focused upon now, is the disparate at-home access to the Internet of our have-not learners from the country’s poorest families. When they leave school at the end of the day, they suffer from a disproportionate degree of at-home Internet isolation and the lack of access to their schools’ online digital learning resources.”
