The Digital Divide is an issue that is not just a problem in elementary, middle and high schools that can not afford the latest technology. I think it is also a huge issue in college and even in the workplace. I have personal seen students at a disadvantage because they could not afford their own computer, yet the classes they had required them to use a computer. They had access to one, yes but owning your own computer saves time that some students (and adults) just don't have. I think that it's important that we all read and understand the issues when it comes to the Digital Divide.
