DEALING WITH THE GREAT DIGITAL DIVIDE The “great digital divide” is a term coined to address the concerns of many people that the world is becoming one marked by “have’s” and “have not’s” with respect to technology—that is, the traditional notion of a “third world” is now also being defined by the extent to which a country has access to and uses technology. Find out what, if anything, the United Nations is doing about this issue and express an opinion on whether or not you believe its efforts will be successful. Determine if there are organizations such as private companies or foundations that have the digital divide high on their agendas. For any such organizations you find, evaluate their efforts and express an opinion as to whether or not they will be successful. Finally, search for a less developed country that is making significant local efforts to deal with the digital divide. If you can’t find one, prepare a list of the countries you reviewed and briefly describe the conditions in one of them with respect to technology.
