Frances Bell :: Blog :: Exploring the Educational Digital Divide

September 29, 2008

Following on from the recent ALT Conference, the EXTEND project team would like to invite you to participate in an online asynchronous discussion in which we will explore the Educational Digital Divide. Funded by JISC-Emerge Benefits Realisation, the discussion begins on Monday 29 September 2008, with topics and questions including:

· What does the digital Divide mean to you?

· Who has the hardware, software and bandwidth?

· Digital Divide as a duality - link to Perpetual Divide

· Gender as a lens on the Digital Divide

· Silver surfers and Digital Natives

However, you’re not restricted to the above topics - with multimedia resources to inspire you and plenty of opportunity to explore your ideas, we are expecting this to be a lively and interesting discussion.

The event will be hosted on the HELP (Higher Education Learning Professionals) network, which you can join by visiting http://www.cabweb.net/portal/course/view.php?id=7 - this will take you to a login page where you can create an account in 2 easy steps and enter the discussion.


Please do join us for what we expect to be a lively and thought-provoking event!

Helen Keegan, Frances Bell and Cristina Costa
