Meaningful Connectivity
To: <>

Please join us for the Change Seminar this week on *Tuesday 12/5/2017* in *HUB
> 214*.
> *Who: *Carmen Gonzalez (UW Dept of Communications)
> *What:* *Digital Equity & Meaningful Connectivity*
> *When:* Tuesday Dec 5th at 12pm
> *Where: *HUB 214
> *Abstract:* Close to 8 million U.S. children live with at least one
> English-language learner parent. This means that many children are growing
> up in bilingual families and likely perform the role of a child broker by
> bridging their family’s access to information and resources. Expanding the
> rich body of work on second-level effects of the digital divide, this
> research presentation posits that digital inclusion is actually a spectrum
> that can look different depending on family dynamics, self-efficacy, and
> local environments. As more resources and services migrate online,
> information-seeking and decision-making processes will likely become more
> collaborative within families with varying language and technical
> proficiencies—such a shift toward collective problem solving requires a
> re-conceptualization of connectivity in the digital age.
> *Bio:*
> Dr. Carmen Gonzalez is an assistant professor in the Department of
> Communication at the University of Washington. Through community-based
> research, she studies how families gain access to information and resources
> that promote health, wellbeing, and resiliency. Her current work examines
> the implications of digital equity for health and financial literacy. With
> a focus on collaborative research and engaged scholarship, she works to
> bridge university and community efforts that address various forms of
> inequality. Gonzalez received her Ph.D. and M.A. in Communication, and B.A.
> in Print Journalism and Chicano Studies from the University of Southern
