Loads of people have the internet and computers at home now. Maybe not the elderly as much though. I don't know exactly what the report said (you mean the Bridgman report?) about computer use so I checked. A quick look through doing control + F for internet/computers and nothing came up. Did you mean another? I'm unsure which one you mean. I base my assessment on what it was like when I was at school and what I see now. I remember everyone was on msn every night all the time when I was a young teen. I was one of the few without or it felt that way. Ten years later with the way things are I really do doubt high numbers of secondary school children do not have some form of computer in their home. I see people with less money than me giving Ipads as christmas presents. Grandparents I have noticed like to give computers as well to help with education. A lot of males in a family unit would feel the need for the internet as well! I think it's a nice idea for those who don't though. I do take note there are libraries but you have to go there to use them so kids are dependent on adults taking them and they close at 5.30. I'll be honest I don't know much about kids social centres but do they do homework there? Are they only accessible on certain days? I do agree other methods should not be ignored as a resource but the potential for having information at your fingertips really is great for learning.
