As school gets back in session, it’s important to make sure that your student is completely prepared to ace this school year.  One of the most important ways to prepare your student is by making sure they have access to High-Speed Internet.

High-Speed Internet has become a major component of the learning process.  According to the Pew Research Center, nearly all research is now done online, which is not surprising given that most libraries and universities now provide access to scholarly work on the web. Sites such as Google Scholar make it easy to access thousands of academic sources with the power of Google’s sophisticated search function so students waste less time trying to find information and more time learning.

You might be surprised to find out just how many tutorials exist on YouTube that can help your student thrive. In fact, according to Ecudemic, more than 80 percent of students use social networks like YouTube to study.  Search Calculus, History, Biology, and even English and you will find a wealth of helpful videos.  These search results even provide breakdowns of most books that are popular among students!  Fortunately, our High-Speed Internet means you can seamlessly stream videos for every subject!

In addition to letting students access materials, High-Speed Internet can actually open up a whole new world for students during the school day.  In many of our towns, students now have the chance to take classes even if they aren’t offered at their school.  Thanks to tele-distance learning, students can participate in classes across the state using video conferencing equipment.  Teachers can also take advantage of virtual tours of major sites around the world such as museums and historical landmarks.  None of this is possible without stable, fast Internet speeds.  We are proud to say that we have helped many schools develop the necessary technology to bring new offerings to rural education.

If you want to find out even more, we recently covered some of the best apps and websites available to help your student get to the head of the class.  Check them out here.
