40 Million K-12 Students Do Not Have the Level of Internet They Need in Schools
The Federal Communications Commission, FCC, is considering expanding access for kids across the country. We need your help to convince them to vote “YES” in order to expand E-rate so that our students can benefit from the access they need in our schools.
Your Voice Matters
How Can You Help?
Educators across the nation are creating 15 second videos to share via social media expressing the need for #Internet4Schools. You can create a short video in Instagram and share it via Facebook and Twitter, or you can simply create it using your video camera and share it via Twitter. Please be sure to mention @FCC and use the hashtag #Internet4Schools. Here’s my video…
Videos can be simple. You can stand or sit in front of your camera for 15 seconds and just share out why access to the Internet is important for students today. No need to get super fancy. It’s the message that is important. Our collective voice counts! You can see another example here and here.
Be Sure to Challenge 3 Friends!
In effort to help spread the importance of this initiative, after you create and share your 15 second video, please be sure to tag and challenge 3 of your friends to also create their 15 second video sharing why kids need access to the Internet in school. Don’t forget to use the #Internet4Schools tag!
