The Digital Divide: The Challenge of Technology and Equity
(1) Information technology is influence the way many of us live and work today. We use the internet to look and apply for jobs, shop, conduct research, make airline reservations, and explore areas of interest. We use Email and internet to communicate instantaneously with friends and business associates around the world. Computers are commonplace in homes and the workplace.
(2) Although the number of internet users is growing exponentially each year, most of the worlds population does not have access to computers of the internet. Only 6 percent of the population in the developing countries are connected to telephones. Although more than 94 percent of U.S households have telephones, only 56 percent
have personal computers at home and 50 percent have internet access. The lack of what most of us would consider a basic communication necessity the telephone does not occur just in developing nations. On some Native American reservations only 60 percent of the residents have a telephone. The move to wireless connectivity may eliminate the need for telephone lines, but it does not remove the barrier to equipment costs.
(3) Who has internet access? The digital divide between the populations who have access to the internet and information technology tools and those who dont is based on income, race, education, household type, and geographic location, but the gap between groups is narrowing. Eighty-five percent of households with an income
over $75,000 have internet access, compared with less than 20 percent of the households with income under $15,000. Over 80 percent of college graduates use the internet as compared with 40 percent of high school completers and 13 percent of high school dropouts. Seventy-two percent of household with two parents have internet access; 40 percent of female, single parent households do. Differences are also found among households and families from different racial and ethnic groups. Fifty-five percent of white households, 31 percent of black households, 32 percent of Latino households, 68 percent of Asian or Pacific Islander households, and 39 percent of American Indian, Eskimos, or Aleut households have access to the internet. The number of internet users who are children under nine years old and persons over fifty has more than triple since 1997. Households in inner cities are less likely to have computers and internet access than those in urban and rural areas, but the differences are no more than 6 percent.
(4) Another problem that exacerbates these disparities is that African-American, Latinos, and Native Americans hold few of the jobs in information technology. Women about 20 percent of these jobs and receiving fewer than 30 percent of the Bachelors degrees in computer and information science. The result is that women and members of the most oppressed ethnic group are not eligible for the jobs with the highest salaries at graduation. Baccalaureate candidates with degree in computer science were offered the highest salaries of all new college graduates.
(5) Do similar disparities exist in schools? Ninety-eight percent of schools in the country are wired with at least one internet connection. The number of classrooms with internet connection differs by the income level of students. Using the percentage of students who are eligible for free lunches at a school to determine income level, we see that the higher percentage of the schools with more affluent students have wired classrooms than those with high concentrations of low-income students.
(6) Access to computers and the internet will be important in reducing disparities between groups. It will require higher equality across diverse groups whose members develop knowledge and skills in computer and information technologies. The field today is overrepresented by white males. If computers and the internet are to be used to promote equality, they have to become accessible to schools cannot currently afford the equipment which needs to be updated regularly every three years or so. However, access alone is not enough; Students will have to be interacting with the technology in authentic settings. As technology has become a tool for learning in almost all courses taken by students, it will be seen as a means to an end rather than an end in itself. If it is used in culturally relevant ways, all students can benefit from its power.
3.THINK: WHAT NEW LIT THEORY LENS DO YOU THINK SHOULD EXIST?
When preparing for this assignment, ask yourself the following
yourself the following to start planning your new theory:
Is there a theory we studied that you disagree with? What about it do you dislike or wish to change? Why?
Which theory would you want to expand further or alter to make it more inclusive of a certain group/culture/trend etc.?
What topics in the media angers/upsets/excites/confuses you the most?
While reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and/or an essay from The Anthropocene Reviewed, were you particularly drawn to certain events/characters/settings/symbols etc.?
What is your favourite genre of media? (i.e. novels, films, short stories/films, articles, TV shows, poetry, advertising, social media etc.)
CREATE: Now use your brainstorming and knowledge of literary theories to create a new school of literary criticism and apply it to either Henrietta Lacks OR The Anthropocene Reviewed, and one other text of your choice.
PRESENT: Design and create a multimedia presentation that incorporates words and images/graphics presenting your new theory.
What kind of multimedia presentation should I create? E.g. a slideshow of 10-15 slides, a video no longer than 2 minutes, an infographic, an annotated painting/graphic design, magazine article/issue
Your multimedia presentation must include the following:
a unique name for your new theory
a brief definition for your theory - types of questions to ask yourself when using your lens
a brief rationale statement for your theory (rationale is basically why you believe this theory needs to exist and how it was inspired)
an application of your theory to any piece of literature (novel, play, short story, fairy tale) or alternate media text (TV show, comic, advertisement, painting, film clip) **Note: You will have to summarize/introduce your choice of text (e.g. film clip, fairy tale, comic, painting etc.) before you apply your theory
an application of your theory to one passage approx. 250 words long from The Great Gatsby. (not the passage you chose from Lit Theory Assignment #1)
Complete the “Student Comments” part of the rubric (see below) evaluating your final piece
Check out some Level 4 examples to get an idea of what a new theory and its application could look like for student selected texts.
You will upload your final presentation to GC on the due date as shown on the class calendar. You will NOT have to present your final product to the class.

7.4This week, you'll apply your knowledge of data collections for sentiment analysis, a common technique applied to movie, product, and
ue applied to movie, product, and business reviews, as well as social media posts.
For this assignment, you'll determine whether teacher reviews are positive or negative, using real reviews from Rate my Professor.
Modify this wordfreq.py (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. program to evaluate whether a particular review is positive, negative, or neutral.
You can use these collections of positivePreview the document and negativePreview the document words (in files folder of Canvas). Note the files contain non-ascii characters that you'll need to accommodate like so:
negWords = open('negative-words.txt','r', encoding='utf-8', errors='ignore').read().splitlines()[35:]
Your modified program should:
exclude 'stop' words from your word counts, using the the below list;
a, an, and, as, at, be, but, etc, for, in, it, its, is, of, or, so, such, the, this, to, with
print the remaining top 25 words, along with their frequency,
print the top 5 positive and top 5 negative words, along with their frequency,
calculate and display a sentiment score for the teacher, where the score is incremented (+1) for each positive word in the review and decremented (-1) for each negative word
- Use this set of real-life teacher reviews
