MIRC Video: Community Transformation via Technology

Throughout the MIRC (Minnesota Intelligent Rural Communities) initiative, participants and invited experts in broadband community development were asked to give presentations on their projects. This week we are going to be sharing some of the videos. The goals of each video was to share lessons learned. Hopefully these lessons will be helpful to others looking to promote better broadband in their communities. I want to note that the intention was to share info; the idea of providing a public archive came later – so it might help to think of these as podcasts more than videos.

In this video School superintendents Matt Grose and Mark Adams from the Itasca Area Schools Collaborative and Paul Thon from Cisco will talk about the work they’re doing to bring technology to Itasca County schools and the communities in which they reside.
