Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This research paper reviews the differences between technology deployment in affluent school districts as well as low-income districts. The attempt to bridge the digital divide is challenging to individuals, communities, and society at large. Students with limited or no access to computers are falling behind in developing skills that are needed in college and in the job market. The research cited in this paper addresses the existence of a divide, describes the affects of teacher philosophies and behaviors in urban school settings, suggests instructional strategies to train teachers, and provides factors that contribute to the Digital Divide as well as solutions for what currently exists.
