Like most other sectors, and many other countries, Covid-19 has exposed the inequalities underlying internet access in this country particularly in Sarawak, and has affected schooling activities tremendously. Not only do rural students and urban students find themselves on the opposite sides of the digital divide, the gap also exists among urban students of different economic backgrounds.
Digital Readiness –Northern Region
This is the final set in the series of studies exploring and assessing the digital readiness, awareness and literacy of rural communities. Previous studies looked at rural communities near Kuching, Serian, Samarahan, Sarikei, Mukah and Sibu, while this one will examine those around Bintulu, Miri and Limbang. This study will utilise the same mixed methods approach that was used in the first two studies. Approximately 900 respondents are targeted for this particular study. Once again, local Pusat Internet Malaysia (PIM) used as a reference point. For this purpose, 16 PIMs scattered around Bintulu, Miri and Limbang will be used.
