Detalles del programa

THE CHALLENGE:

Many families in the U.S. don't have high-speed Internet at home. This problem is called the Digital Divide. But to succeed academically and compete in today's digital world, every student needs equal access to online learning. Without this access, disconnected students can fall behind their wired peers, creating the Homework Gap.

 

THE OPPORTUNITY:

Mobile access has the power to close the Homework Gap. T-Mobile plans to narrow the divide with EmpowerED™, a program that provides wireless devices and service plans to help students and schools succeed.

Tus responsabilidades

T‑Mobile está comprometido con el éxito de este programa y eso incluye medir el impacto. Si tu distrito escolar es aprobado, T‑Mobile trabajará contigo para recolectar datos de todos los estudiantes con acceso a banda ancha móvil fuera del campus.

Tu distrito escolar tendrá que:

  • Commit to training relevant teachers and administrators on how best to utilize the devices and service.
  • Provide annual aggregated data by grade level at each school, including ELA proficiency, math proficiency, and tardiness/attendance. Your school's current data collection process and metrics are sufficient. T-Mobile is not asking for new metrics that are not already part of your reporting process.
  • Conduct two anonymous online surveys, created by T-Mobile, about student technology usage with students and teachers. La primera encuesta será administrada antes de que el estudiante tenga acceso al programa y la segunda será realizada al final del año escolar.
