In China, accessibility to Google's services is a significant challenge due to the government's Internet censorship policies, commonly referred to as the "Great Firewall. This has implications for teachers trying to use Google's educational resources or develop educational programs that rely on these services. In other words, it affects the ability to access and use these tools for educational purposes. China is making extensive use of digital technology in various sectors, similar to digital rivers. However, the education sector faces challenges due to the unavailability of Google services in China. This lack of Google collaboration tools, which were previously accessible in Korea, creates a sense of isolation, akin to being a remote island in the digital world. The blocking of Google services in China has created a digital divide that affects students and educators by limiting access to a wide range of educational resources and tools. As a teacher in China, I've been trying to implement Google tools into my teaching, but I've been unable to use all the lessons I've been researching in Korea because I can't access Google's webpage. It was really disappointing and frustrating. Given this situation, developing an accessible and effective Google education program in China will require a creative and innovative approach. This could involve exploring a range of strategies, from technical solutions to the development of localized educational content.
