When: Thurs., November 9 from 3-4 pm
Education processes are now infused with technology. Many school districts benefit from Gigabit level services on-campus. One-to-one device initiatives, flipped classrooms and virtual school snow days are now part of the educational lexicon. This is all well and good until students head to their unconnected home. How are schools coping with this inequality of educational opportunity and capability? In some school districts, ubiquitous connectivity and affluent families make connectivity a slight challenge. In poorly connected regions with high levels of poverty, schools face a significant challenge to cope with the digitally excluded.
Join us for a webinar roundtable discussion with regional school technology experts. Marc Johnson of East Central Minnesota Educational Cable Cooperative and Josh Sumption from the Southwest/West Central Service Cooperative will discuss the present challenges, the current responses by education leaders and options for overcoming this broadband challenge.
