Often times the term “digital divide” is used to describe the unequal access by some members of society to ICT, and the unequal acquisition of related skills. Blue Sky Net feels that acquiring skills in ICT is just as crucial as access to them. After all, there is no use owning a hammer if you don’t know how to drive a nail!
The World Wide Web offers access to information from every corner of the globe. Blue Sky Net is concerned about improving information and tools that will benefit Northerners specifically. We work with stakeholders to develop common, beneficial applications that utilize ICT and provide a real benefit in the lives of those who use it.
In general, Northern Ontario presents some unique challenges when it comes to delivering technology services to your home or business (High Speed Internet, Cellular telephone service, etc.) Blue Sky Net brings together service providers, potential customers, and government programs to understand why these services aren’t available, and to develop a strategy to overcome these service gaps.
