From the Thinkfinity Community Hub: “There is a new digital divide in education. This time it is not about where students live or how much money their parents earn. This digital divide is between the households (Haves), and the schools (Have Nots). According to the findings from the same Verizon Foundation survey, ‘…more than half of all middle school students (54%) say they are not allowed to use laptops in the classroom for learning purposes, (68%) of students are not allowed to use a tablet for learning purposes, and (88%) say they are not allowed to use smartphones for learning in the classroom.’ ”
