As there are many gaps between developed and developing countries, Digital Gap is one of them. Research has raised the idea and question of computer science/education closing this gap. Research has identified, compared, evaluated and reviewed the issue from both the angels of literature and quantitative research. The focus has been to assess the computer science/education to provide quality education though electronic means and review to what extent this is going to be feasible. What computer science/education is , its components , its uses in some sphere of life, the interaction of computer science/education with science and technology, ICT infrastructure, channels of communication, learning styles, the role of teacher and classroom have are discussed. Major changes in population numbers, the environment and new technologies are likely to affect people with relevant skills and knowledge who will be better equipped to adapt to this uncertain future. As we depend on computer science/education more and more, people will increasingly need a scientific understanding in order to take part in democratic decision-making and our shared culture. Conclusion is on the fact that computer science/education the world in future will be very different to that of today as it will assist in creating sustainable convergence for indigenous scientific and technological innovation. And also bridging the gap between developed and developing countries of the world.
