Digital divide in California

'Divide' text

The following quote and information are from an NY times article Lewin,T.  ‘In a Digital Future, Textbooks Are History‘, NY Times

I will include a quick quote from Tim Ward, a senior education administrator in California.

A large portion of our kids don’t have computers at home, and it would be way too costly to print out the digital textbooks

This statement encapsulates the issues of the ‘new digital divide’ described by Green, H. & Hannon, C. 2007, ‘Their Space: Education for a Digital Generation‘ (see my previous post on this report).
