ELTOC 2021: Addressing the digital divide by Zarina Subhan

Covid-19 has brought into sharp focus the inequalities that we had grown accustomed to or overlooked. One such inequality is the digital divide.

It is an issue that has been seen internationally, regardless of wealth, because the digital divide can exist to differing degrees and include hardware, software and social issues. Now it is time to consider what managers and educational institutions can do to assist their teachers, students (and their parents, if younger students) to overcome such a divide.

The presentation will describe what a digital divide is before considering what we can do to overcome it and help bridge the gap, so that we do not simply return to ‘business as usual’. It will propose how we can use this rare opportunity to innovate and build on the all too difficult lessons learnt through 2020. Without doing so we cannot realistically move forward and truly prepare our students for the uncertain world we find ourselves in.
