    In your own words define ‘Digital Divide’

    Digital Divide is to categorize those who have the skills and access to digital technology from those who do not. This includes the ability to access high performance technologies, and also the ability to effectively utilize these technologies.

    •In your own words define ‘Global Digital Divide’

    Global Digital Divide occurs when technologies are not accessible by all people in the world. This usually occurs in poorer countries, where they do not have the economic means to afford the cost of these technologies. Compare to richer countries, they are unable to access the knowledge (from places such as the internet) for them to compete on a global scale. This in term directly causes economic downfall, widening the gap between develop and undevlop countries.

    •Give an example (quoting Internet Access statistics) that compares Canada with a country of your choice in Africa.

    Base upon the America Internet Usage and population Statistics

    (http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats2.htm), Canada has a population of 32,251,238 with 21,900,000 of these people are internet users, this is an internet penetration of 67.9 %, (more than half of the population. There is also a growth of 72.4 % from 2000-2006. Compare Canada's statistics with Ethopia, one of Africa's poorest countries. The internet usage is only 0.2 %, which equates to only 113,000 out of the 72,238,014 population has access to the internet.

    •Is there a digital divide within the Solomon Islands (listed under Oceania/ Australia) Explain your answer using (Internet Access statistics)

    Base upon the findings in America Internet Usage and population Statistics

    (http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats6.htm)

    The Solomon Islands have a population of 481,352 people, but only 1.4% of this population are internet user. This means only 8,400 Solomon Island people have access to technologies. This equates to a digital divide, as a large portion of the population does not have means to technologies, this in term depriving them of knowledge, skills and economics.
