In today’s world of ever-advancing technology, a web connection is vital. Without it, social, political and economic advancement are impossibleTechnology has changed the way we learn, teach, and communicate. The way we carry out even the simplest tasks. Internet access is now necessary in any field. Thus, sharing this resource helps rebuild the lives of underprivileged children and disadvantaged families.
The digital divide is the gap between people with and without access to technology. Things many take for granted, like personal computers and the internet. This divide doesn’t only impact underdeveloped or developing countries. It also affects developed nations, at home and abroad.
A lack of resources creates the divide. There isn’t enough financing to allow equal access for everyone. This results in disadvantages within some communities.
Many employers expect people to know certain technologies. Also, they’re more inclined to hire those that already have that experience.
More affluent communities have funds to spend on technology. On creating computer labs, teaching people how to use technology, and providing IT support as necessary.
In contrast, less prosperous communities simply can’t provide the same services.
Every community has different priorities, which only adds to this inconsistency. Here are three ways to ease the digital divide:
Thank you so much for the laptop computer you provided for Zeke. It has been very helpful to him and I'm sure will continue to be helpful for a long time.I am truly thankful for the wonderful donation of the laptop computer provided by Potter's Gate Charities Inc.
We must solve the digital divide. This requires understanding technology’s social context. In many places, there are more important things to worry about than access to technology.It’s difficult to assess where funds should be allocated. Especially in places where technology isn’t as deeply integrated into people’s lives. Some countries rely on farming, rather than industry. To the people there, the technology that we use may not be relevant.
People share current and trending news on social media like Facebook and Twitter. But those without access to technology could find themselves left behind and uninformed. Understanding and staying up-to-date with the rest of the world empowers individuals. And allows them to make positive contributions to society.It’s also important to bridge the gap between internet users and content producers. Active engagement requires both give-and-take. Everyone should learn to share content with others, not just consume it.
Potter’s Gate Charities Inc. is a public benefit charitable non-profit organization that aims to bridge the digital divide. We offer high-quality, pre-owned computers donated by individuals and businesses to underprivileged children and disadvantaged families in developing and emerging countries.
All countries should invest more in education. They also need to introduce electronic devices to the curriculum.We need to get computers and laptops to children in third world countries. This would have many potential benefits. For example, access to the internet could help resolve problems a farmer might face.
Due to low literacy rates, many students wouldn’t understand what was on their screens. Thus, the first step must be teaching them to read and write.
In some cases, these actions alone won’t produce positive outcomes. Other interventions may also be needed so that individuals will benefit the most.The digital age has been extremely transformative. But bridging the digital divide is a necessary next step. It will improve living standards for the underprivileged and disadvantaged worldwide.
How can you help address the digital divide? Improve the lives of the underprivileged and disadvantaged by donating your unused computer. Or become a sponsor to provide a computer to the less fortunate.
Access to information and communication technology is essential in the developing world. It’s key to improving a country’s educational and economic prospects.
But new equipment is costly. Many places have limited infrastructure and a lack of IT skills. This means that many people still have no access.
Today, information is one of the major drivers of economic and social development. And Potter’s Gate Charities’ technology program grants access on an unprecedented scale.
The digital divide is not only a divide between those who have access to Potter’s Gate Charities and those who don’t. It’s also a divide between those who know of us and those who don’t. Between those who realize the opportunities we present and those who don’t.
It consists of an infrastructure gap, a knowledge gap, and a psychological gap.
