Going the Last Mile: Evaluating Broadband Applications in Schools

Time 10/07/09 10:30AM-11:45AM

Session Abstract

Recent memos from the Government Accounting Office (GAO) have called for the FCC to evaluate more closely the effect broadband is having on the organizations in which it is used. However, evaluation is an often overlooked or or under-resourced aspect on broadband-enabled program innovation in schools and community organizations. And, in a time when ARRA funds are infusing broadband expansion, awareness of its impact is vital. In this session, we will share the results of broadband evaluations and discuss techniques and resources for enhancing the evaluation of your K-20 and community projects.
