Home Thought Leadership Keeping everyone connected

Keeping everyone connected

by The 100 Companies

The pandemic highlighted how lack of student home connectivity creates obstacles for learners. But as students returned to school, educators questioned home connectivity’s importance. We sought answers.

With a grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, we performed research with 13 school districts and 750,000 students, using real-time data and surveys to understand how students were learning during the pandemic. We found the Federal Communications Commission standards for a connected household didn’t support student learning, and students used more bandwidth at home than school.

These insights revealed the need to address student digital equity, and the power of association-led research.
