COVID-19 has highlighted the increased reliance on digital technology. Digital access is essential for many. Work and study, information, and social interaction. The pandemic has brought into focus the digital divide. An increasing disparity between those who have ready access to IT and those who have not. Too many people in Aotearoa are being affected by their lack of ability to access the digital world.
At COMET Auckland we advocate for equitable access to education and we are interested in finding out more about how Covid-19 impacted people’s digital access throughout the lockdown.
