Mind the Gap

 

Just some of the supporting messages for the campaign from our supporters:


Peter Smith, CEO of The Cooke e-Learning Foundation says:
“low cost, refurbished PCs & laptops to children & families in Leicester. Free IT training for parents to help them support their children’s learning at home.”


Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said:
“The Internet is an integral part of learning so it is crucially important that all children, regardless of their family background, have the same access to the vast volume of information that is available via the web. The digital divide is an invisible source of disadvantage, and this campaign can play a vital role making sure that London children have equal opportunities to fulfil their potential in our great city.”


James Diamond, Consultant/Trainer at James Diamond Training thinks Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“The Internet and digital technologies offer fantastic opportunities to young people, but there is a very real danger that hundreds of thousands of young people are going to be left behind by what this generations equivalent of the Industrial Revolution.”


Camille Leavold, Co Founder and Managing Director of Abbots Care thinks Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“We support children with learning disabilities in their homes and it is essential to their development and learning that they have access to the internet and all the amazing resources it can offer them.”


Alasdair Blackwell, Co-founder and CTO of Decoded thinks Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“Gas, electricity, Internet. Telcos need to take the lead. Any home without Internet is like a home without electricity.”


Allison Allen, Director of Outstream Consulting thinks Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“There are too many children that are disadvantaged by the lack of technology at home and still too many schools for which ’only 10% of our kids don’t have computers/Internet is not an issue of concern.”


Bob Harrison, Education Adviser at Toshiba Information Systems thinks Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“It builds on the fantastic work e-Learning Foundation did with Home Access project.”


Jerry Roest, Chairman of e-Learning Foundation thinks Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“It brings focus to the important quest for equality of access to IT for all children at their home as well as at their school.”


Tricia Hartley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Learning thinks Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“It’s one of the ways we can help tackle the educational disadvantage that children from poorer homes suffer.”


Lee Robinson, CEO of Altana Wealth says Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“Educating our children is the route to society’s success.”


Ian Sharp says Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“Being on line is no longer optional; it is an essential learning resource.”


Nigel Lewis, CEO of AbilityNet says Mind the Gap is a great idea because:
“All children must have access to the digital world if they are to grow, thrive and have the best opportunities in life for themselves and the country.”
