Pew Reports on Digital Readiness
Pew Research Center’s Internet, Science & Tech division published “Digital Readiness Gaps,” a new report that explores digital readiness, “the degree to which people succeed or struggle when they use technology to try to navigate their environments, solve problems, and make decisions,” according to the report’s summary. It reveals the attitudes and behaviors underlying people’s readiness and how these factors relate to their comfort level with digital tools. Pew assessed people using five main factors: “their confidence in using computers, their facility with getting new technology to work, their use of digital tools for learning, their ability to determine the trustworthiness of online information, and their familiarity with contemporary ‘education tech’ terms.”
