1. Install computers in all public libraries in the state and expand the hours when the computers are available.
2. Expand staffing and other resources so that public schools can be open to the public after normal school hours, on weekends, and during the summer months.
3. Provide individuals in disadvantaged communities with computers.
4. Provide high-speed Internet and mobile access for all state residents.
5. Subsidize Internet Service Providers to provide low-cost Internet to all state residents.
6. Provide information literacy courses to enhance computer skills and enable knowledgeable use of digital technologies.
7. Develop free online educational content, giving first priority to content most relevant to lower socio-economic groups before content that is relevant to the rest of the public.
Based on our research, we concluded that options # 6 and #7 were most optimal, as providing educational content, training, and knowledge on "know how" have proven to be more effective than a mere access to computers, the Internet, and any technological devices. Without knowledge on how to use them, and without seeing real benefits, mere access and availability won't make any difference.
