From what is on these tables… <ul><li>We can see that internationally the digital divide is massive. In many developing countries, people just aren’t being able to catch up with larger western coutries such as the UK. </li></ul><ul><li>This may be due to Economical, Social and Educational differences… </li></ul><ul><li>-people may not have enough money, or have never been taught to use such technology… </li></ul><ul><li>Or it may be that they simply liv to far away from the centre of the technological boom </li></ul><ul><li>Many electronics are manufactured in China, Japan or America, with smaller brands in Europe and some parts of asia. </li></ul><ul><li>However some of these counties simple live to far from the technological boom, and perhaps aren’t even able to gain access to new updated technology as it isn’t available in the place they live </li></ul>
<ul><li>This may have to do with manufacturers not wanting to export to a country too far or unable to give them much profit </li></ul><ul><li>Or it simple just being uncommon socially int hat country to own a laptop or PC. People may just not want to have technology, considering it unecessary. </li></ul>
Either way, the geographic digital divide is still enormous <ul><li>And ever-growing. </li></ul><ul><li>Even in Britain,. A more local version of this can be seen- in inner city schools, or suburban schools, often children are exposed to plenty of ICT equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>This is in stark contract to schools out in the countryside which have much less ict facilities. </li></ul>
