Internet Revolution Creates A Digital Divide

A strange phenomenon is happening today in technology: it’s evolving, it’s proliferating, and it’s changing the way people learn. But more than that, it’s creating a knowledge gap that’s affecting a certain demographic of people in the world. While the Internet is responsible for more global economic growth than renewable energy, mining, and agriculture, there are still hundreds of thousands of people who do not have access to a stable Internet connection. So while all those lucky people with broadband access get to take online classes and enjoy the fruits of knowledge transfer on the web, a staggering number of people are left in the dark. As it turns out, the digital chasm between the haves and have-nots is only getting larger. This graphic explores the digital divide: what it means for you, for the world, and for the people who are left behind.  From Online IT Degree
