Inadequate Bandwidth, No Digital Learning

This is an article about a report I came across that i thought was really useful for schools or education groups assessing how much bandwidth they need and what other steps they need to take to ensure that they provide the necessary ‘backbone’ to enable effective digital learning, both now and in the future.

The Journal – SETDA Raises Broadband Targets For Learning in the Digital Age

I think, even though it’s written purely from a US state and District perspective it still offers some thought provoking and interesting insights in to issues of equity and fairness in society when it comes to digital access. There is no question that in developing countries equitable access to the internet is already a factor with vast implications and these will only become greater.

It also makes clear that in the private secotor, as we plan to expand the use of digital resources in the future, so we must ensure that we have the bandwidth, the firewall capacity and the networking infrastructure to support educators and students’ greater demands.
