But some in the field see roadblocks to all the technology that’s flooding the system. One of the biggest areas of concern, among many, is access, said David Liu, COO of Knewton, a learning technology provider that develops platforms to personalize educational content.

“It can heighten the disparity between rich schools and poor schools, putting disadvantaged students even further behind because of lack of access to these tools,” Liu said.

Digital divide, lack of certified librarians 'a national crisis' | eSchool News | eSchool News | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it
Panelists spoke at the National Press Club about how educators and librarians can respond to the "second wave of the digital divide."

 

Seventy-five percent of teachers are assigning homework to students that require a “digital environment,” Stripling said, but only 54 percent of teachers say they believe all of their students have access to those tools.

“The school library then becomes the most powerful place for them,” she said.  “School librarians are in charge of that training, of providing those tools. That is the responsibility of the school librarian.”

 

“(...) Many libraries are built for transaction, not transformation,” said Richard Reyes-Gavilan, executive director of the District of Columbia Public Library.

 

(...) “Digital literacy is no longer a choice,” Anthony said. “This is a quality of life issue.”

Young People Are Not as Digitally Native as You Think

Young People Are Not as Digitally Native as You Think | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it

The study, conducted by the Georgia Institute of Technology and the International Telecommunication Union, shows that only 30 percent of people ages 15 to 24 have spent at least five years actively using the Internet, the criterion used to define digital nativism.

 

(...) A digital divide between rich and poor is nothing new, but the new study identifies an interesting twist on the phenomenon. It shows that in the developed world, there is hardly any generational gap anymore between Internet users. 

 

(...)  The supposed distinction between always-on members of the millennial generation and their older counterparts is actually much less pronounced in industrial nations than elsewhere in the world.

 

(...) “Everyone’s fascination with digital nativism in the U.S. or, say, Scandinavia is fine, but the places where this phenomenon probably has the most impact is low-income countries in Africa or Asia,” Dr. Best said. “The places where it is most salient are those where the least amount of attention has been paid to it.”

Should Schools Subsidize Mobile Phones for Kids? | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it

K-Nect’s Gross: “Statistically, teenagers rank as the fast growing segment for smart phones. As a result, we will see the disparity between the haves and have-nots begin to erode. Nevertheless, a digital divide at some level will always exist. In such cases whereby a student is not able to afford access to these types of devices, school systems need to help subsidize access."

Pew Study: Technology Aids Students’ Writing Skills Though Challenges Remain - The Digital Shift | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it

“Teachers, writing teachers especially, do not view good writing and the use of digital tools as being at war with each other,” adds Judy Buchanan, deputy director of the National Writing Project and a co-author of the report. “When educators have opportunities to integrate new technologies into teaching and learning, they are the most optimistic about the impact of digital tools on student writing and their value in teaching the art of writing. They gave countless examples of the creative ways they use emerging digital tools to impart writing skills to today’s students.”

1997, when MOUSE began operating. Originally founded to bring Internet access and computers to underserved schools, the New York-based nonprofit shifted gears in 2000 and started teaching tech skills to middle and high school students. Today, MOUSE trains students in 377 schools across the country and runs a yearlong afterschool tech design program for about 25 New York City high schoolers.

 

(..) MOUSE thinks of itself as more STEAM than STEM. (The 'A' standing for arts.) It wants to cultivate life and work smarts rather than specific technical skills.

Ce serait alors avant tout une stratégie marketing et commerciale très forte, un signe de l'hégémonie culturelle américaine sur l'ensemble des territoires.

It's estimated that only about 10 percent of K-12 schools teach computer science. Some companies are trying to fill a void in American public education by teaching kids computer programming basics. The push comes amid projections that there will be far more tech sector jobs than computer science graduates to fill them.

While the US is sometimes seen as a leader in technological advances and computer literacy, a new study shows this might not actually be the case. According to a study recently published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, fewer than 38% of Americans ages 16-24 could complete computer based tasks more difficult than sorting emails in to folders, which was the lowest performance out of 19 countries assessed. When digging deeper, however, a huge discrepancy was seen in basic computer skills for young adults from varying socioeconomic backgrounds, with those whose parents did not have a high school education or equivalent performing significantly worse than those whose parents did

Is there really a digital divide? | Lifestyle, Parenting | GroundReport.com – Latest World News & Opinions | Digital divide and children | Scoop.it

If you’re not feeling particularly au fait with all this new technology, luckily you’re not alone. A recent study by Nominet asked 1,001 UK parents with children aged 10-18 years old how they felt about their children’s online activities, revealing some interesting findings and showing that even net-savvy parents sometimes struggle.

(...) As the influence of the web grows, digital safety is becoming more of an issue. Because younger parents aren’t always as fluent as their children, you need to close the knowledge gap if you want to do your bit to help them stay safe and secure online.
