Room: Executive Suite (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Sponsored Session - 30 Minutes
Brief Session Description: From research papers to online homework collaborations to practicing on Khan Academy, so much of high school today requires students to have reliable, high-speed connectivity at home. Without it, there's almost no way students can do their best on homework or achieve their full potential. But what, if anything, can school districts do to support students' internet access needs at home?
Join us to learn more about the 1Million Project, a national effort to provide free, mobile, high-speed internet access to high school students across America. In just 18 months we've provided connectivity to more than 200,000 students in more than 1,800 high schools in 181 school districts in 33 states - and we're just getting started!
We believe all high school students are full of potential and deserve equitable access to the internet. Do you? If so, come hear how your district can join the 1Million Project family.
