Educational Network Solutions
Trends in the learning environment are evolving quickly.
Online learning is gradually becoming a significant component of our education system today. Prior to the pandemic, a report published in Common Sense Media estimated that 16 million U.S. students out of 50 million lived in a household that lacked either Internet access, a digital device, or both. Additionally, the report found slightly less than one out of every ten teachers faced the same problem nationwide. For students, online learning provides flexibility and access to material developed by experts in the fields. For educators, the benefits include accessibility to rich learning material from all over the globe. Blended learning – a combination of face-to-face interactions and online activities has become the preferred method of educating students by a large group of educators. Online and blended learning, however; benefits only those with access to the internet at home and at school.
The government has recognized this growing problem for the nation’s school systems and since 2021 has appropriated over $65B in additional funding to bridge this digital gap. Trilogy 5G has partnered with telecommunication leaders, across the world, to leverage its shared spectrum offerings to deliver guarantee bandwidth to school communities and families across the United States.
Trilogy 5G Education Division builds Internet connectivity networks that provide high-speed access to school campuses and surrounding areas.
