Empowering Educators to Shape the Web

Empowering educators to shape the Web empowers youth to shape society. We must inspire educators to dream and to harness the potential of next-generation, gigabit-speed internet-connectivity that can make any learning environment imaginable possible.

What if every student could utilize studio-grade audio tools from a web browser on any computer or connect with peers in classrooms across the country to collaborate seamlessly? What if stepping into any classroom or library really meant stepping into anywhere we can imagine? With gig-speeds, it is possible.

How do we support a community of practice for educational innovation that will advance the promise of the Internet for learning?
