Answer to Question #16051 in Other Psychology for chris
Your pen pal from a part of the world that lacks ready access to the Internet has written you a letter and asks you to explain several concepts.
I hear so many good things and am so fascinated with what you can do with the Internet. Finding all this information so quickly must make your life very easy. But please tell me: how do you assess the value of all this information you find on the Internet? How can you be sure that it is reliable and credible? Also, I have heard the term “digital divide.” What exactly does it mean, and how do you think this divide could be bridged?
Thank you for helping me to understand these issues!
