The Digital Divide

  • The gap between people of different regions where one country or group has more technology capabilities than another, also applies to generation differences

  • Schools and Jobs are starting to use more tech-centric elements to get more done

  • “within the next decade about 80 percent of jobs one would need to know how to use digital technology…” (fcc.gov)

Conclusion
Conclusion mid1980’s to present)

  • There’s a huge gap between the Pre-WW2 generation and the beginnings of Digital Natives

  • The gap is also huge between the new generation of today and their parents (almost as great)

  • The divide is increasing with each generation but the divide also decreases because of newer technology
