Episode 4 airs tonight on channel 19! Digital Equity in Central Texas
This episode discusses the Digital Divide in Central Texas. Right now, a majority of Austin residents have access to computers and the internet. Most of us are logging in on a daily basis, specifically with mobile technologies, but there is a segment of the population, that represents the digital divide. These are people who do not have access to, or knowledge of how to use computers and the internet, making it harder to get a good job, to have access to social programs or even keep in touch with family and to make ends meet overall. In this episode we talk about what Austin is doing to close that gap.
Thank you to our guests: Juanita Budd, Executive Director, Austin Free-Net, Ruben Cantu, CEO LevelUp Institute, and John Speirs, Program Manager, City of Austin Digital Inclusion Initiative
