  12. How Do We Define the Digital Divide?

  13. Digital Divide “America’s Digital Divide is fast becoming a ‘racial ravine.’ It is now one of America’s leading economic and civil rights issues and we have to take concrete steps to redress the gap between thehaves and have nots.” --Department of Commerce for Telecommunications August 1999

  14. Falling Through the Net: Toward Digital Inclusion (Oct. 2000)

  15. Key Federal Measures • Households with Computers • Households with Internet Access (NTIA, 1999)

  16. Percent of U.S. Households with a Computer By Race/Origin • Overall, the #s of computers in households have increased, yet a gap exists between racial/ethnic groups • In 2000, 33% of Black and Hispanic households had a computer compared to 55% of white households and 66% of Asian-American/Pacific Islanders

  17. Percent of U.S. Households with a Computer By Income • The lower the family income, the less likely to have a computer, particularly Blacks and Hispanics • In 2000, 27% of both Black and Hispanic households w/ incomes of $15-35K had a computer at home, compared to 40% in white and 50% in Asian Amer./Pac. Islander households

  18. Percent of U.S. Households Using the Internet • Overall, the #s of households with Internet access have increased, yet a gap exists among racial/ethnic groups • In 2000, 23% of Black and Hispanic households had Internet access, compared to 46% of white and 57% of Asian Amer./Pac. Islander households

  21. Digital Divide • Low-income schools lag almost 35% behind more affluent schools • Fewer than 40% of low-income schools have a classroom with an Internet connection • 17% of 17-year olds are functionally illiterate *NCES

  22. Digital Divide “The lack of technology access and skills puts disadvantaged members of our society increasingly at risk of becoming disenfranchised spectators of a digital world that is passing them by, bit by bit.” --Milliron and Miles, CEO & VP League for Innovation November/December 2000

  30. Digging In: Recommendations

  31. Digging In • Community colleges should review the curriculum and pedagogies used in the classroom to ensure that all students develop technology literacy and the ability to adapt quickly to change

  32. Digging In 2. Community colleges should develop strategic plans to enhance and continuously improve the issue of technology in learning and teaching processes

  33. Digging In • Community colleges should provide opportunities for all members of the faculty and staff to use computers, the Internet, and other emerging technologies

  34. Digging In 4. Community Colleges should seek relationships with technology partners in their local business communities who will directly and indirectly benefit from technologically literate employee prospects

  35. Digging In 5. Community Colleges should facilitate explorations of how the issues of growing minority enrollments, limited access to technology, and increasing requirements for technology and change savvy will likely impact them in the future

  36. Digging In 6. Community Colleges should strengthen their occupational and other short-cycle offerings to continue to prepare their growing number of information technology workers needed in the new economy

  37. Digging In 7. Community Colleges should create venues, on their own or with partners, where all students can access computers and the Internet on and off campus.

  38. Digging In 8. Community Colleges should work with K-12 school systems to facilitate the professional development of teachers in the use of technology in learning and teaching processes

  39. Dedication to Education: Learning Beyond Technology “The current and future health of America’s 21st Century economy depends directly on how broadly and deeply Americans reach a new level of literacy—’21st Century Literacy’—that includes strong academic skills, thinking, reasoning, teamwork skills, and proficiency in using technology.”--21st Century Workforce Commission, 2000
