April 12 class & blog post 6

April 11, 2012

Today’s agenda: We’re all about the internet today. I’ll talk about it, student presenters will talk about it, we’ll all talk about it.

Due today: Don’t forget to complete the Ch. 9 quiz before the start of class.

For Tuesday: Related to the internet, we’ll talk about the digital divide (which is mentioned briefly in Ch. 9).

You should read/look through three materials that examine the digital divide phenomenon: “Digital divide defined” from the Digital Divide Institute, “Digital divide is a matter of income” from the New York Times, and “The new digital divide,” which is a slide show.

Due Tuesday: Blog post 6 should focus on your reaction(s) to the assigned materials. Some questions to consider:

  • What are your experiences with the digital divide?
  • Do you agree with some of the assertions in the materials? Why or not?
  • Why is it important to help people “cross” the digital divide?
  • How can we continue to help people bridge the digital divide?

Your blog post should:

  • Be at least 250 words
  • Use proper grammar & complete sentences
  • Include at least one link that IS NOT one of the assigned readings
  • Include a headline that effectively summarizes your post and/or entices people to read
