  26. 26. Digital inequalities & digital literacy There are three (intersecting) ways in which inequalities, whether of class, race, gender, or other dimensions, shape digital literacy: 1. access to digital tools and the functional skills to use them; 2. how the external environment can support or hinder an individual or group’s capability to enact or practice the digital literacies learned (these factors might be cultural, social, economic, or political); 3. the extent to which particular literacies are urgent or important for certain populations Maha Bali ‘Inequalities within Digital Literacies’
