The gulf between the haves and the have-nots with technology is shifting and changing. Many "civilized countries" continue to have areas with little or no Internet access. Promises of 5G global access still has price barriers attached to the devices that support it and the cost to access. How do we shrink the digital divide and democratize access for communication, education, information, and survival?

The iLRN Grand Challenge Jam IV: Bridging the Digital Divide is a facilitated open small group discussion event bringing people together from around the world to discuss the issues and offer solutions. It is about the solutions. How do we change things?

Artists will be taking visual and graphic notes during the event and displaying them via live stream and the final artwork in VirBELA, host to the conference.

This event is part of the iLRN2020 Conference and open to the public. These Grand Challenges tackle the issues considered of primary importance to the United Nations sustainable development goals, tackling racism, infectious diseases, the digital divide, and climate change in custom designed event spaces for the conference.
