MCLEAN, Va. (PRWEB) November 17, 2021
The past two years have seen a seismic shift in the educational paradigm. More than ever, learning happens online – in the classroom, at home, on the school bus, at extracurricular activities and after-school programs, and more. As schools and districts return to in-person learning, others move forward with a hybrid learning model, and many more offer virtual academies, it is more crucial than ever that all students are connected to the wealth of digital learning opportunities available to them.
While the vision of a fully connected school district – and the resolve to close the Homework Gap once and for all – is shared by many, 12 million K-12 students today remain disconnected. In order to bridge the widening digital divide, we must leverage existing technological infrastructure to build out a robust wireless solution that supports this level of connectivity for all students. In the days ahead, this work will require a hybrid network approach that leverages connectivity from both the commercial and private network spaces.
In this NYSCATE 2021 session, “The Connected School District: A New Educational Paradigm,” attendees will learn the components of a connected school district – at the student, school, district, municipal, and national levels; how hybrid networks work and how they can solve their most pressing connectivity challenges; and the steps they must take in their spheres of influence to arrive at this common goal – both in the short-term and the long-term.
