Cozy-Mystery.Com - Networking, resource sharing, collaboration, and professional development for the education community Digital differences Digital differences When the Pew Internet Project first began writing about the role of the internet in American life in 2000, there were stark differences between those who were using the internet and those who were not. Today, differences in internet access still exist among different demographic groups, especially when it comes to access to high-speed broadband at home. Among the main findings about the state of digital access: One in five American adults does not use the internet. Senior citizens, those who prefer to take our interviews in Spanish rather than English, adults with less than a high school education, and those living in households earning less than $30,000 per year are the least likely adults to have internet access. The ways in which people connect to the internet are also much more varied today than they were in 2000. The primary recent data in this report are from a Pew Internet Project tracking survey.

Khan Academy Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project Three major technology revolutions have occurred during the period the Pew Research Center has been studying digital technology – and yet more are on the horizon. Broadband First, the rise of the internet changed the way that people got information and shared it with each other, affecting everything from users’ basic social relationships to the way that they work, learn, and take care of themselves. The speed of internet connectivity picked up considerably with the rise of broadband connections. As people adopted those higher-speed, always-on connections, they became different internet users: They spent more time online, performed more activities, watched more video, and themselves become content creators. Mobile Second, mobile connectivity through cell phones, and later smartphones and tablet computers, made any time-anywhere access to information a reality for the vast majority of Americans. Social

Home Connexions - Sharing Knowledge and Building Communities Future of the Internet - Future Internet Scenarios What Will The Internet Look Like In 10 Years? The Internet Society engaged in a scenario planning exercise to reveal plausible courses of events that could impact the health of the Internet in the future. While obviously not intended to be a definitive overview of the landscape or all potential issues, we believe the results are interesting and, we hope, thought-provoking. We are sharing them in the hope that they will inspire thought about possibilities for the future development of the Internet, and involvement in helping to make that happen in the best possible way.
