Broadband Imperative III Equity Access and Student SuccessInfrastructure for the Future

There is not a one size fits all for digital learning implementation and districts and schools should determine their digital learning pedagogical goals and administrative bandwidth needs, and then design the capacity of their network to anticipate future growth and utilization, ensuring that schools are not under-provisioning bandwidth that is necessary for digital learning approaches. Proactively providing adequate bandwidth, provisioning a scalable underlying architecture, and having the information necessary to increase bandwidth in time to meet needs in the future is critical. All network leaders should also look to the future with anticipation that schools and districts will ultimately function with innovative, seamless digital learning similar to the corporate structure.
