The gap between people of different regions where one country or group has more technology capabilities than another, also applies to generation differences Schools and Jobs are starting to use more tech-centric elements to get more done “within the next decade about 80 percent of jobs one would need to know how to use digital technology…” (fcc.gov)
WWII Generation Clyde Fullerton (Grandparent): Not at all in the digital divide Use of technology was phones, otherwise not much Baby Boomer Mary Crivello (Parent): Had a phone Did not start using a computer until in her 20’s for work Prior she used an electric type writer
Sarah (1980’s-early 2000’s) Was not into much of technology Did not use much of a computer until High School-was an IBM Did not get a cell phone until her 20’s James (1990’s-present) Almost always wanted to go outside Grew up playing some video games and use of the computer a bit Wants the latest and greatest now But still wants to go outside
Haylie and Kenzy: Tech-centric generation (Born after 2000) All they want to do is play on technology (computers, iPod/Pads, video games etc.) Needs “outside time” School has links on their website for them to use
There’s a huge gap between the Pre-WW2 generation and the beginnings of Digital Natives The gap is also huge between the new generation of today and their parents (almost as great) The divide is increasing with each generation but the divide also decreases because of newer technology
