How is broadband changing education?

Broadband allows students to take online courses and access cutting-edge research at schools and universities throughout the world. With broadband, Advanced Placement classes and foreign language programs can become available to small rural schools with limited resources. It helps teachers customize lessons for students at different learning levels by leveraging different types of online curriculum materials and virtual teaching aids to supplement lesson plans and homework assignments. And it serves as a platform to teach students the digital literacy skills that are so critical to success in today’s economy. For more information, see The Digital Generation’s Classroom.
