Are there differences in how advantaged and disadvantaged students use the Internet?

Disadvantaged students in low- and middle-income countries have fewer opportunities to access the Internet than advantaged students.Reducing this gap is important, but the experience of high-income countries shows that inequalities in the ability to learn using digital tools persist even when all students have easy access to the Internet. Ensuring that every child attains a baseline level of proficiency in reading will do more to create equal opportunities in a digital world than will expanding or subsidising access to high-tech devices and services.
