Coronavirus impact on technology and digital divide

During the current coronavirus pandemic, access to technology has a direct impact on a person’s ability to earn a living, pursue an education, access accurate and up-to-date health and safety information, and connect with others in a safe way. Unfortunately, it has long been the case in American society that access to technology varies significantly along key demographic lines.

Research pandemic-specific consequences of the “digital divide” in the United States. Identify at least one demographic that has been adversely affected by lack of access to technology. Describe the factors that lead to this digital divide, the current difficulties faced by the demographic(s) you identified. Explore how the situation you identified impacts people on the other side of the digital divide. Suggest a plan of action to address the situation, discussing both the costs and expected benefits of your plan.

Your paper should demonstrate original critical thinking. Support your claims with evidence. Cite at least three different authoritative sources. Make sure that whenever you touch on facts or the claims of others, you provide an in-text citation, e.g. “People who wear green sneakers are 10% less likely to have reliable internet access (Faquenuze 2017:14)”. Every source cited in the text of your paper should get an entry in a bibliography at the end of your paper. Conversely, every source listed in the bibliography should be cited at least once in the text of your paper.

You may use any standard style guide (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) but please apply that style consistently. Follow standard conventions of English academic writing, including the use of paragraphs. Format your paper according to standard academic practices. Aim for a length of 1000-2000 words.

Your paper will be graded on originality, argumentation (including how well you incorporate information and ideas from other sources), clarity, and style (adherence to standard writing conventions, including proper documentation and citation of sources).

Please upload your paper in PDF format.
