"Bridging the digital divide"?
This is a Service Learning project conducted by the University of San Francisco Computer Science department and led by Professors Chris Brooks and David Wolber.
Our mission is to help bridge the 'digital divide' by providing local nonprofits with computer support and troubleshooting.
The digital divide refers to the unequal distribution of information
technology, along with the education and skills to effetively use this
technology. We are currently in the midst of a profound social,
cultural and economic transformation, thanks to information technology
and the Internet, and it is essential that all the world's citizens
have the chance to benefit from this transformation.
Also, This helps achieve USF Mission of "educating hearts and minds" by providing our students both with hands-on 'real-world' experience and an appreciation of the importance and value of service to the community.
