The Digital Divide
The Digital Divide is a social challenge that refers to the gap between those who have consistent access to computers and the internet and those who don’t. The gap grows as a country becomes more dependent on technology in both its economic and democratic institutions. Narrowing the Digital Divide has proven to reduce socioeconomic inequality.
In partnership with Bezeq and The Center for Internet Research at Haifa University, headed by Professor Sheizaf Rafaeli, Appleseeds developed an Israel ICT Index. The Index serves as a tool for understanding and benchmarking the Digital Divide across Israeli society, and as an engine in identifying future investments in education and technology.
