ISTE 2015: Expanded WiFi for All Students

ISTE 2015 wrapped up on July 1 in Philadelphia, and with its conclusion many participates left with their marching orders for the upcoming school year. There were many take a ways from this year’s conference; however, the one that resonated with me the most is the continued “challenge to move from improved connectivity in [every] school to expanded access in [every] home.” According to Rosenworcel, “expanded Wi-Fi for all students can be the difference between a student keeping up in a class or falling behind.” Like so many educators and ed-tech advocates, I believe the way to ensure every child’s success in school is to provide open and free access to wireless service at home. Ultimately, solving this problem for thousands of students is not only best practice in education but it is essential practice as well. Check out a few of the other topics covered at ISTE 2015 here. tlb
