Digital Competency Versus Digital Accessibility

Published By
Oxford University Press

According to OUP’s Addressing the Deepening Digital Divide survey, poor internet connectivity or access to a device was the most widely reported barrier to delivering digital learning. Digital accessibility is often the most visible face of the digital divide. However, results from the survey, and from wider sources, suggest the problem is more akin to two ends of a broken bridge. Digital competency is the opposite end of the bridge: presenting an almost equal challenge and possibly one that is less visible on a day-to-day basis.
