#digped Storify: the Digital Divide, from Chalk to Twitter

On Friday, July 6, Hybrid Pedagogy hosted a discussion on Twitter focused on the idea of the digital divide. We set out to determine if this divide is real, in what ways it’s real, and how it might be related to other “divides” (e.g., social, economic, etc.). Into the heart of our discussion fell two key factors: access and relevance; that is, access to technology and information, and the relevance of that technology and information to our students. The discussion was inspired, in part, by Lee Skallerup Bassette’s article “It’s About Class: Interrogating the Digital Divide” which raised clear questions about not only how to bridge the digital divide, but also whether it’s appropriate to try.
