Back to School: the High-Tech Way

In 2013, students headed back to school entered classrooms that were more connected than ever. During September 2013, Connect Alaska highlighted a variety of educational technology initiatives, including the newly launched program, Edified.

Edified is Connected Nation's new education initiative that seeks to increase the deployment of the latest mobile technology, robust wireless connectivity, education apps, and twenty-first century teaching practice in America's K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. Edified builds partnerships with technology companies, education research organizations, broadband providers, and distinguished educators who desire to work collaboratively to promote technology solutions that have great potential to revolutionize learning and education outcomes. 

During September 2013, we invited you to explore Edified and other success stories of technology in education. See those stories and efforts below.
