-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
english language

Today, the Digital Divide describes the gap within society between users and non-users of digital services. This seminar looks into the future. It raises the question of increasingly many divides which are currently developing due to IT: between those who become addicted to the internet and those who can keep their attention under control; between those who are ready to give up their privacy and those who are not; between those who become rich through IT and have access to it and those who are left behind.
