Using technology is essential in attracting students to your institution and creating an atmosphere that cultivates success. Students want increased access, opportunity, and options available 24/7. However, students from different socioeconomic groups have varying access to computers and the Internet, keeping the digital divide open. Computer and Internet use among K-12 students is affected by such socioeconomic factors as parent education attainment; poverty status, and family income. Additional factors of race and ethnicity; household composition; and metropolitan status wedge a deeper stake in use factors. This session will highlight cutting-edge technology solutions that you can use to dramatically increase your applicant pool/ retention rates, while also addressing the digital divide issues that affect many of your students.
