Broadband and the future of learning

Richard Adler | Sept. 3, 2014
High-speed broadband networks will not only accelerate learning, but they will also enable students to acquire the skills that they need to flourish in a post-industrial society.

High-speed broadband networks will not only accelerate learning, but they will also enable students to acquire the skills that they need to flourish in a post-industrial society -- the ability to learn on their own and to keep learning throughout their lives, to think critically and creatively, and to seek out challenges and tackle tough problems. If the U.S. is to keep its place in a hyper-connected, hyper-competitive world, if schools are to remain relevant in preparing students for the world they will live in, the shift to this new approach to learning is urgent and mandatory, not optional. The technology to support connected learning is already here; now we need to ensure that all Americans have access to it and make sure that its potential for learning is realized.
