Latinos and Information Technology: The Promise and the Challenge

The findings of this report are organized into three broad and interrelated topics. The first refers to issues of access to Information Technology in Latino communities, including the basic understanding that access is a quality-of-use issue, rather than counting numbers of computers per capita. The second section refers to learning technologies across the educational spectrum, while the third section addresses IT workforce issues, including the implications of educational attainment and achievement.
