Child care student, Margot, recently entered a writing competition with Axcelerate, and wrote about her time studying with Macquarie Community College.

We are committed to decreasing the digital divide in our communities where there are deep gaps in access, affordability and skills in using computers, phones and tablets. A new research report (The Australian Digital Inclusion Index) provides a comprehensive picture of Australia’s online participation to date. Things are improving, however, there is still lots to do.
