Extreme Networks is Helping to Create a Connected Learning Experience for All

Learn how Extreme Networks is helping K-12 schools across the country overcome their digital challenges.

What is the Digital Divide?

Students across the nation are struggling to learn in today’s digital learning environment due to lack of access to technology, internet connections, and technology training. Students in grades K-12 can’t learn outside the classroom, research information, or complete assignments due to the digital divide, and are therefore put at an academic disadvantage. We need to defeat the digital divide in order to give students everywhere access to proper education that can set them up for a successful life.


How Can We Defeat the Digital Divide?

Schools need to be able to provide internet connectivity to their students to ensure that they all have equal access whether that means at home or at school. Technology experts are coming together with educators and school districts to combine their expertise to help kids learn from anywhere and provide the necessary connection to do that.
