Today, around the world more people have mobile phone subscriptions than have access to electricity and safe drinkable water. Today, almost a third of the world's population uses the internet (a 528.1% growth since 2000!

Bridging the digital divide: Libraries work to help the unemployed | SeacoastOnline.com | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

"Librarians have a term for it: the digital divide — those who have and those who do not have a computer in their home, or a basic knowledge of how one works. And the divide yawns ever wider in these days of spiking unemployment.

Libraries in Maine and across the country have long been centers of cyberconnectivity for people who have no computer connection in their homes — 73 percent of all Americans, according to the American Library Association.

These days, the computers and free Wi-Fi offered by libraries are taking on an expanded role — as places where the unemployed come to look for work. Some don't have a computer, some have given up paying for the Internet to save money."
