Participating in the Global Digital Society: Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants, Digital Divides
Who is part of the global digital society and who is excluded? This webinar took place on 14 March 2014 and covered different types and aspects of digital divides, such as age, gender, income, as well as different scales, such as divides on a national and international level. Questions, such as how rural communities can be serviced, or how disabled and elderly people can be serviced, were addressed.
