Back to School: the High-Tech Way

As we head back-to-school, students are entering classrooms that are more connected than ever. At Connect Iowa, we are participating in a variety of educational technology initiatives, including the newly launched program, Edified.

Edified is Connected Nation's new education initiative that seeks to increase the deployment of the latest mobile technology, robust wireless connectivity, education apps, and twenty-first century teaching practice in America's K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. Edified builds partnerships with technology companies, education research organizations, broadband providers, and distinguished educators who desire to work collaboratively to promote technology solutions that have great potential to revolutionize learning and education outcomes. 

During this month, we invite you to explore Edified and other success stories of technology in education.
