Pandey, Iswari. "Literate Lives Across the Digital Divide." Computers and Composition 23.2 (2006): 246-257.

In this article, Pandey highlights the contexts and consequences of print and digital literacies in an increasingly globalized world. Through narrated experiences and relevant real world examples, Pandey outlines how cultural, linguistic, and political environments shape/are shaped by literate practices that occur digitally. Pandey concludes this article by elaborting and examining the issues surrounding digital access, making that case that the only way to understand the literate practices of individuals (writers/students) is to understand their political and cultural backgrounds.

This is a helpful source for anyone focusing on the effects of technology on literacy and literate practices, inequalities in digital access and digital literacy, or the role of technology in the composition classroom.
