How Home Internet Affects Educational Outcomes

The importance of connectivity and technology in education is widely understood, but HOW important are they? Comcast and Fortune Schools will discuss preliminary findings from their randomized control trial research on home internet's impact on student educational outcomes. Moving from research to implementation, the School District of Philadelphia will then discuss its efforts on digital inclusion, followed by a work-in-progress playbook for schools and an open call for input and collaboration.
