• The Digital Divide.. Addition to the ITV News Piece from the view of IT Industry

    The digital divide is increasing. These days technology is taking over our lives. We are becoming more and more reliant on these devices for everything. A discussion with several of our customers tells me that these days smartphones are taking over our lives with even the very young living their lives in front of a screen. I do not feel this is always for the better and I work with technology every day!

    The digital divide is a metaphorical and physically increasing partition existing in society. Whilst this is not a line drawn in pencil around certain groups of people and thus is metaphorical in actual fact the divide is a very real thing. It is a dividing line between people who have access to modern technology and those that do not. 

  • July 2022 Ukraine Laptop Appeal.... Status Update!

    Aid takes many forms and for us that means charity IT based devices.

  • Being Part of the BBC Make A Difference. Give A Laptop Campaign. Digital Divide. Team Sivill

    As many of you are likely to be aware, Lockdown has brought a whole host of challenges and demands that have never been encountered before. Here at Sivill Service in Tattershall, Lincolnshire, we teamed up with the BBC to help combat some of these issues. Here is a bit of a glimpse at our side of the story. 

    The Coronavirus (Covid-19) has had one of the most dramatic impacts upon the population in the UK that are under 16 years old. As explained in the article by Cambridge University the so-called Digital Divide in the UK has become an increasing problem with the demand for home schooling. More and more classes have headed online and there are large numbers of children within the UK suffering with what is known as the Digital Deprivation. Parents and children that were ill equipped to deal with an online world before Covid-19 just do not have access to the resources needed to allow them to learn from home. 

  • Grandparents, older generations, technophobia and Lockdown use of internet 🤯🤯

    Lockdown has meant learning new skills. Some have learnt new skills by choice, others through a requirement. Technology can be a scary prospect. My grandparents who are in their 80s have learnt to use the internet. Silver Surfers are a huge area of internet growth with increasing numbers of older generations getting online.
  • 😷😷😷 First week open now completed... Life open in Lockdown from our viewpoint 😬😬

    Having been closed since the onset of the Lockdown, preparation began for us to open again. Take a look at our review of the process and a behind the scenes view of our journey to reopening a local store under the current circumstances. 

    It may seem that it is just a matter of opening the doors again but from our point of view as a business the process has been much more involved and stressful than you maybe think. There has been a lot to consider and many new processes to implement before we could consider opening the doors again.
