Abstract

In this panel, we redefine the "digital divide” from a global point of view. We bring examples from K-12 and higher education institutions highlighting Turkey, Israel, Iceland and Australia. This panel not only focuses on the access to ICT resources, but also argues the importance of information literacy skills among K-16 setting. Today, expending in our learning environments is becoming more critical. However, the scenarios around the world are such that a large number of students are introduced to computers and Internet technology only on a surface level without the integration of critical thinking skills and information literacy skills. It seems that technologies are widely used in everyday life, workplace, and academic settings. Population that is disconnected from technology will be left behind.
