Brief Session Description: As the educational use of digital learning resources continues to grow, forward-thinking school systems are finding creative ways to expand and facilitate education broadband reach, both on and off campus. In this session, you'll learn how the Utah Education Network is implementing eduroam, a global wireless network access service, to provide K12 students and educators with secure and seamless wireless access both in and outside school. We'll also share best practices gathered from over 200 districts using Wi-Fi on buses to help bridge "the Homework Gap" by allowing students to use travel time as learning time.
