Abstract This study investigates the existing digital divide among higher secondary students in selected provincialized higher secondary schools and private junior colleges in the Lakhimpur District of Assam. The research also proposes measures to address the identified digital disparities. Data were gathered through a survey method employing questionnaires. The findings reveal a significant digital divide among students, with private junior college students exhibiting greater internet usage compared to their provincialized school counterparts. Additionally, within various academic streams, Science students demonstrate higher awareness of internet usage than Arts students. Provincialized higher secondary school students cite the unavailability of internet facilities in their schools, homes, and localities as the primary reason for not using the internet. Lack of access, interest, training, and perceived lack of necessity are identified as other reasons for non-usage. The study concludes with recommendations aimed at closing the digital gap.
Keywords digital divide, higher secondary school students, internet use, Assam.
