Short Paper – The Digital Divide

 
As we have experienced, the Internet and its related technologies has  a dramatic impact on the nature and quality of our lives. As Internet  users, we have vast amounts of information literally at our fingertips.  We can communicate, collaborate, and transact on a global scale in ways  that were unimaginable only a few years ago. But even in a society as  technologically advanced as we are, there are still a large number of  those that do not have access to this technology, don’t have the skills  to use it or refuse to utilize technology for other reasons. As you  approach this assignment, think of those affected by the Digital Divide  more broadly than the traditional angle of “who has and who has not”.
After reading the module notes and all supplemental materials, respond to following:
