Download Conversation #7
A conversation with Dr. Eszter Hargittai of Northwestern University on teaching, learning, and digital inequalities.
The idea behind introducing the term digital inequality... is that it's really a spectrum of differences even after people go online. So even once people get connected, it's wrong to think of them as all equally accessing all that the internet has to offer, because people will do so in very different ways and in different contexts and with different implications for what benefits they can reap from their access and use.
