Opportunity for All? Digital Technology and Learning in Lower Income Families
VJR Consulting directed this nationally-representative telephone survey on digital access. The survey, conducted among low- and moderate-income parents, explored issues of digital access, and documented the challenges of the “under-connected” – those without home broadband, or whose home connection is slow or inconsistent. The full survey findings are available here. The data were released at an event at New America, featuring remarks from FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler. Listen to the NPR story on All Things Considered, read the USA Today article about the findings, check out the commentary in EdSurge from Google's global education evangelist Jaime Casap, read the op-ed from London's Financial Times, or hear the interview with study co-authors Vicky Rideout and Vikki Katz on KQED’s Forum.
