Digital divide and learning disabilities: counteracting educational exclusion in information society

Digital divide and learning disabilities: counteracting educational exclusion in information society A 1998 inquiry by the U.S. government showed that 42% of all U.S. households had a computer and 26% regularly used e-mail or more far-reaching Internet-based services.

Abstract

A 1998 inquiry by the U.S. government showed that 42% of all U.S. households had a computer and 26% regularly used e-mail or more far-reaching Internet-based services. More recent but not fully comparable studies have revealed, that gradually, the originally extremely remarkable differences in Internet use between men and women and young and elderly have decreased, which is probably due primarily to the increasing user-friendliness and controllability of graphical user interfaces. But at present, income-caused, educationally conditioned differences in Internet use are increasing dramatically.
