Hosseini Masoumeh and Morteza Binesh

Abstract: This research project aims to study the digital gap between teachers and female students of high schools of Neishabour. The survey research method was used for this research. The information was collected through two researcher developed questionnaires: one related to teachers and the other one related to students. All the teachers and female students of high schools of Neishabour formed the statistical population of this research project which included 92 teachers and 260 students. The statistical population was selected according to Kersey and Morgan table and through simple one-step random sampling. The findings of the research showed that that although teachers have more expertise of information and communication technologies than students, teachers and students possess the same amount of hardware facilities. There is a significant difference between students’ using of information and communication technologies and that of teachers: students use information and communication technologies more than teachers. Teachers’ level of education does not affect their possession and using of information and communication technologies. In general, the results of the research showed that there was a digital gap between teachers and students. In order to remove or reduce this divide and develop educational knowledge and technology, it is required to change and improve the organization structure and the methods of our country’s educational system
