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.
