This Friday, August 10, IIA will be hosting a webinar along with iNACOL exploring the real-life example of Washington D.C.‘s Kramer Middle School in utilizing broadband to drastically improve test scores over a five year period.

This discussion will shed light on the ever-more important role that high-speed Internet — including wireless broadband — is playing in today’s education system, such as in determining the level of achievement that students are able to obtain. Participating in the discussion will be Kwame Simmons, principal of D.C.’s Kramer Middle School, one of the city’s 40 lowest performing schools, and David Teeter, director of policy at iNACOL, a non-profit organization that promotes collaboration, advocacy, and research to enhance quality K-12 online teaching and learning, will address digital divide issues, including the importance of equality in access to broadband. Our own Co-Chair Jamal Simmons will host.

The webinar happens at 11am ET/8amPT.
