Measuring Digital Opportunity for America's Children: Where We Stand and Where We Go from Here - Information and communications technology (ICT) has spread faster than any previous communications invention, affecting nearly every aspect of children's lives. This report: (1) summarizes what has been learned about the impact technology can have on children's lives to improve well-being, opportunity and success; (2) provides an accountability tool that paints a picture of progress in providing these measurable technology-enabled opportunities to young people; (3) identifies the children and young adults who are missing out on certain benefits technology can offer; and (4) offers recommendations about what can be done to maximize these ICT-driven opportunities for youth, make more cost-effective investments in ICT and provide digital opportunities to all children. (Wendy Lazarus and Andrew Wainer, The Children's Partnership, June 2005)...
