Innovations in Education: The impact of the Digital Divide

Innovations in Education: The impact of the Digital Divide

According to data from an analysis by Common Sense Media and the Boston Consulting Group, 36% of Kentucky students – roughly 240,000 – lack adequate internet, as well as 10% of teachers. COVID-19 has exacerbated this digital divide issue, as more Kentuckians are now working remotely and taking online classes. From our youngest learners to our college students, access to the internet is now an imperative. Today on our episode of Innovations in Education, we will focus on the direct impact of the digital divide on students, parents and educators. We have hosted two live “Innovations in Educations” episodes on the digital divide.
