This companion web site to the PBS program “Digital Divide,” which aired in January, is an excellent supplement to the original broadcast.
“Digital Divide” was a two-part series that took an insightful look at how computer technology–and, specifically, the gap in access between wealthier and poorer families and schools–is affecting America’s youth. The web site features additional information and activities related to the program, including a thematic discussion. Visitors to the site have the opportunity to learn more about the people featured in the show and read lengthy excerpts from their interviews. The site also includes a list of related links to the show’s topics and interactive online activities that further investigate the ideas expressed in the program.
