Three iPad Apps for Creating Multimedia eBooks - iPad Apps for School | Evsters Tech | Scoop.it

Teachers can create and organize multimedia reference materials for students and students can create multimedia products to show off their ideas. The following three iPad apps allow you and your students to create multimedia ebooks.

Frontier says E-rate funding should not fund middle-mile overbuilds | FierceTelecom.com

Frontier says E-rate funding should not fund middle-mile overbuilds | FierceTelecom.com | Evsters Tech | Scoop.it

Frontier Communications is ready to serve rural school districts with its own last mile services but says the FCC should not extend funding to other competitors to overbuild where they already provide service.

 

Last July, the FCC voted in favor of modernizing the 18-year-old subsidy program that brings Internet services to schools and libraries.

 

In an FCC filing, Frontier said that the regulator should take advantage of the fact that Frontier and other ILECs serving "rural areas have already deployed fiber deep into rural America."

 

"The Commission should not waste scarce E-rate funding to overbuild existing middle-mile fiber when companies like Frontier have already invested the intensive capital necessary to provide it," wrote Frontier in an FCC filing. "Instead, the Commission should focus its efforts on determining how the existing fiber facilities that Frontier and other ILECs have in place today can bring the desired services to all schools and libraries, including those in rural areas."

 

Being a provider that's focused primarily on rural markets, the company has a mix of both fiber and copper-based facilities that can support high-speed Ethernet services for schools.

 

In its territory, Frontier currently has 17,260 schools and libraries that are located in 2,242 of its 2,662 total wire centers.

 

It added that 95 percent of these schools and libraries are located in wire centers that can provide a fiber-based Ethernet connection. As long as each school has a last mile fiber connection, they can get a 1 Gbps speed.

5 myths of online student privacy

5 myths of online student privacy | Evsters Tech | Scoop.it
Students are compelled to interact online — and to get by in the digital age, they need the skills to do so. Rather than giving in to fears of what might happen when students connect over the internet, educators should bust the myths of online student privacy and use them as teachable moments to turn their students into capable digital citizens.
