HEADLINE: What Digital Divide?
Craig Watkins, associate professor in the Department of Radio-Television-Film, talked on NPR about a recent survey that showed young African Americans and Hispanics are getting on the Web with mobile devices.
WATKINS: “And given that the mobile device is something that’s considered more personal, something more social, something more entertainment driven, when you don’t have access to other means of the Internet, other means of a sort of digital media environment, I think it does create limited opportunities for black and Latino youth who are going online primarily via their mobile device.”
