by McLaren, Jennifer | The Smith Family | Zappala, Gianni.

Publisher: Camperdown, N.S.W. Research and Social Policy Team, The Smith Family 2002Description: viii, 28 p. ill.Other title: The Smith Family. Research and Social Policy Team background.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2002 Summary: This paper presents new data on the access and usage of Information and Communications Technology (ICT), in particular, computers and the Internet, by households and children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. The existence of unequal access and usage of ICT across the population – the ‘digital divide’, is compounding disadvantage for some, because having access to ICT is becoming so central to being able to fully participate in the economic, social, political and cultural spheres of society. This is the first of several publications that provides empirical data to complement previous conceptual work on the ‘new economy’ and the digital divide. This paper focuses on what has been termed the ‘A’ of the ‘ABCs of the digital divide’ – Access, Basic Training and Content. The data come from a survey aimed at collecting benchmark data on computer and Internet access and usage among students and families on The Smith Family’s Learning for Life (LFL) program.
