Purpose:
In June of 2013, President Obama announced the ConnectED initiative, which empowers teachers with technology and training, and students with access to digital resources. Currently, fewer than 30% of classrooms have internet access that supports digital learning. The initiative will connect 99% of classrooms to enable next-generation digital learning. 

AT&T has pledged more than $100 million to give middle and high school students in Title 1 schools free Internet connectivity for educational devices over their wireless network for three years.

AT&T’s mobile broadband service will enable students to utilize tablets and other mobile devices for educational purposes that support student learning in new and more effective ways.
