Seizing the Moment: Progress on Bridging the Homework Gap but More Work to be Done
June 6, 2016 from 1:00pm – 2:30pm
904 Hart Senate Office Building
In this installment of the Seizing Opportunity in the Digital Age Congressional briefing series, the National Coalition for Technology in Education and Training (NCTET)will discuss the progress made by the FCC and Congress in closing the “homework gap”: the chasm that exists between students who have home access to high speed broadband and those who do not. In addition to highlighting changes wrought through the Every Student Succeeds Act and the FCC’s recent Lifeline Modernization Order, this session will also explore the work that remains to be done to ensure all students have access to high speed broadband in the classroom as well as at home.
This event will feature remarks from:
▪ Senator Angus King (I-ME)
▪ FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel
▪ Project Tomorrow CEO Julie Evans
▪ Albemarle County Public Schools (VA) CIO Vincent Scheivert
RSVP by June 5th at firstname.lastname@example.org
