There’s no greater litmus test for our future than the quality of our education, an area defined by its most valuable asset: emerging technology. Schools everywhere are using Internet access to enliven, fast-track and enhance the educational process.
However, the same technology that galvanizes the 21st century classroom also threatens to leave many students behind. Home computers and Internet access are increasingly expected of students and essential tools in many situations. What about the kids who don’t have Internet at home? What can schools do to keep technology involved in the curriculum without inconveniencing and depriving the kids whose families can’t afford access to the Web? Articles like this affirm this disparity is a huge problem.
What can companies like Kajeet do to solve this divide?
Kajeet operates under the belief that the quantum leaps we’ve made in technology must be used to bridge this educational gap. We help all kinds of schools and students use advanced technology to teach and learn.
Kajeet partners with schools to give them top-of-the-line devices and a safe, filtered Internet service— a package that can be scaled to their needs and used to help kids who don’t have a Web connection at home. We provide schools with tablet computers, Mifi Smartspots™ and smartphones, so kids can safely access the Internet from home.
We provide schools a safe and simple solution so they can close the digital divide, make the most of their budget, and step into the 21st century!
