Academic administrators and others in position to help reform curriculum and policy in higher education
While ubiquitous, low cost high speed internet access has resolved one digital divide, other inequalities relating to device and web 2.0 competency have emerged, particularly in residential college settings.
I believe that digital inequality is greatest in higher education for multiple interrelated reasons, including an older average instructor age, the tenure system and a lack of emphasis on teaching innovation. I believe resolving this digital inequality is integral to the reinvention of higher education that needs to occur for it to remain (rebecome?) a relevant institution and not just a luxury of the wealthy.
