But please tell me: how do you assess the value of all this information you find on the Internet? How can you be sure that it is reliable and credible? Also, I have heard the term digital divide. What exactly does it mean, and how do you think this divide could be bridged?
Thank you for helping me to understand these issues!
Best regards,
Your friend
