Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 27, 2014 7:56 PM

Some very interesting points and some are related to research. Technology is always a tool. The way we use it makes the difference.

Fishtree Education's comment, January 28, 2014 5:53 AM
Couldn't agree more Ivon! The way we use tech makes the difference. The need comes first, and tech comes afterwards. Without this first step tech can cause information overload. We always have a choice, just sometimes we forget to admit it.

The FCC Broadband Report You Didn’t Hear About

The FCC Broadband Report You Didn’t Hear About

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, February 7, 7:40 AM

f you follow broadband policy, you probably know that last week the FCC released its annual Broadband Progress Report (often referred to as the Section 706 Report) in which it concludes (erroneously) that broadband is not being deployed in a reasonable and timely manner.

But did you hear about the other broadband report issued by the FCC last week, the one demonstrating how deployment and performance of broadband in the United States is far outpacing European broadband? Didn’t think so.

In conjunction with the well-known Section 706 Report that reviews the progress of broadband deployment in the U.S., Congress also requires the Commission to prepare an international comparison of broadband. While there was much fanfare surrounding the adoption of the 706 Report at the FCC’s public meeting last week, a separate report with the required international broadband comparison was released by the International Bureau without comment on Friday evening.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 8, 11:28 AM

Fixing sounds like we know how to cure what ails things and people. It is why we are in the bind we are in. The people closest to the scene, teachers, parents, and students, have the least say in what happens. It should not be a free-for-all, but isn't that what we have now? And, yes we do have external partners helping us, hence the neo-liberal economic and political agendas perpetuated in our curricula.
