Abstract

With the growing importance of digital and information literacy, digital equity is a priority that ensures that there is not only equality, whereby every child receives the same opportunities, instruction, and help, but that there is equity whereby each child receives as much as she or he needs to acquire information and digital competencies. This means that disadvantaged children may need more opportunity, instruction or help. Before there can be equality there needs to be equity.
