What is the digital divide?

Do you really know?

What is the digital divide? Thanks for asking!

Whether you’re a regular Do You Really Know? listener or just tuning in for the first time, the fact that you’re here probably means you’re not affected by digital illiteracy!

The digitalisation of society as a whole has been accelerating for years now. Covid-19 lockdowns further sped up the process in a way we hadn’t anticipated. People suddenly had no choice but to work remotely, homeschool their kids and do grocery shopping online.

But the health crisis also revealed the isolation which permanently affects people who find themselves on the wrong side of the digital divide. Digital illiteracy is holding back a surprisingly high number of people, even in developing countries.

Does that really still affect anyone in 2021? What are the benefits of digital literacy? What can be done to bridge the digital divide then? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
