We have recently launched a new research report: ‘Addressing the Deepening Digital Divide.’ The report—which is based on research with teachers 1,557 teachers across 92 countries, supported by extensive secondary research—looks at the impact that the digital divide has had on education, the barriers to effective teaching and learning, and how the divide has affected learners’ long-term development. While the digital divide is not a new issue, it has deepened due to the pandemic, and millions risk being left behind. Based on the insights in our report, we make recommendations to governments, policymakers, and those working in education, to help address the divide, support learners’ future prospects, and ensure education is fair for all. #DeepeningDigitalDivide
Oxford University Press has advanced knowledge and learning of all kinds throughout its 400-year history. From a child reading their first words to a researcher expanding the frontiers of their field, we strive to help more and more people around the world achieve their potential. When we know more, we can solve new problems and explore fresh opportunities. But the world—and the needs of education and research—are constantly evolving, and so are we. We have recently launched our new OUP brand, supporting our ongoing transformation to ensure more people around the world have greater access to knowledge than ever before. Oxford University Press—advancing knowledge and learning.
