RAC | Bridging the Digital Divide Technology Trends in Education

Partner Content: The work of the Regional Authority Corporation helps shape the technological future for the betterment of the people. As a result of factors such as students’ increasing reliance on online resources for homework, the need to facilitate distance learning, the adoption of novel educational approaches and the proliferation of connected devices, K-12 classrooms, research laboratories, universities and colleges. Facing new connection problems. How academic achievement and financial success are related has been researched and explored. Its importance is clear in the current economic crisis. We provide America’s elementary schools, middle schools, colleges, and research institutes with the resources they need to take decisive action toward important industry reforms. The tools include a network of people and technology, the enthusiasm and energy needed to bring people together, and the expertise to mold technology and tools to sustain technology platforms. Teachers, students, families, and the legislature all need to work more closely together if we are to realize our greatest potential.

Development in the field of technology

Frontier technology can help low-income areas. Some workers may have to change jobs to retrain or adapt. Some people never adapt because change happens so fast. AI, Big Data, and IoT are key national innovation initiatives. They are also part of state and local information economy and digital society strategies. The development of these plans begins with primary and secondary education activities. The American Rescue Plan Act gives school districts billions in new, discretionary money to use over the next three and a half school years. The money will be spent on residential internet infrastructure to enable remote learning, particularly in rural and underserved areas. Independent school districts (ISDs) are critical in creating plans and forming partnerships to provide computer and Internet access to students and families.

Advances in technology like 5G and XR are changing the face of school education. “XR” stands for “Extended Reality”. Some people learn best by participating themselves, rather than reading or hearing about the process. With the help of digital devices such as wireless networks and an electronic device, students can engage in real-time online learning regardless of their physical location. Technology allows for the creation of an interactive environment where students can visualize concepts and learn in a more hands-on way.

Regional Authority Corporation and Nokia are working together to bridge the digital divide.

Institutions of higher education have a wide range of needs that require campus-wide communication. The primary use cases driving their need for new broadband wireless connectivity are:

  • Classroom technologies: Providing classrooms and auditoriums with services such as smart boards, smart podiums or smart lighting.
  • Digital Productivity Tools: Providing staff and students with access to office productivity tools on their mobile devices, and broadband access for students participating in courses and exercises.
  • Industry 4.0 Labs: Enabling labs to study and research Industry 4.0 technologies using communications technology used for business- and mission-critical loT applications across multiple industries.
  • Campus Utilities: Optimizing building, water, power and environmental management with data from building automation and control systems and LoT sensors. Reliable broadband coverage and connectivity can help institutions develop new campus-wide logistics systems using automated guided vehicles (AGVs).
  • Campus Security: Facilitating the deployment of surveillance cameras, smoke sensors and emergency call buttons on campus. Broadband wireless connectivity can open the door to video analytics use cases such as drone- or robot-based surveillance or automated fever detection based on data from thermal cameras.
  • Campus Communication: Connecting academic and operational staff with VoIP/PBX phone systems and group communication applications such as Push-to-Talk (PTT) and Push-to-Video (PTV).
  • Digital Signage: Using connected digital billboards to disseminate general information, provide emergency announcements, assist in wayfinding, engage visitors and simplify campus life.
  • Remote Learning: Offering augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) classes that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. This capability allows teachers or classrooms to be located on or off campus.
  • Residential Student Housing Connection: Providing students with good and affordable high-speed Internet access, facility management services and emergency calls. The network can also support home automation and smart devices, including smart speakers, doorbells and locks.
  • Mobile e-commerce: Providing secure point-of-sale terminals on campus to support ticket sales, food and beverage services, concerts and events. These capabilities could be complemented with drone- or autonomous vehicle-based delivery services.
