Digital divisions tackled head-on

The British government aims to tackle the digital divide with a wide-ranging action plan. A seven-point plan to tackle Britain's "digital divide" has been unveiled by the government. It will try to remove barriers such as cost, lack of training and confidence that keep some people off the internet. The plan involves a scheme to lease computers to pupils so they can access web-based teaching materials at home. Another project will see a "digital challenge" prize awarded to the local authority which shows how the internet changes the way it works with citizens. [via BBC News ]
