During the COVID-19 pandemic, technology has played an important role in ensuring that many of us could continue to work and learn, be kept informed and stay connected with our family and friends. However not all of us have been able to do this because of not being able to afford the technology and connectivity and/or not having the skills or confidence to be able to use technology effectively.
