Discover How E-rate Helps School Districts Expand Student Opportunities.

(Original Webinar October 12, 2017)

For a decade, E-rate has made technology more affordable for schools and libraries across the U.S., and the revamped E-rate program focuses on the largest and most urgent need: closing the Wi-Fi gap and creating access to high-speed broadband. Both are critical for an effective digital learning experience.

Join us to hear how Howe Public Schools is leveraging E-rate to revitalize their network infrastructure and add technology to teaching and learning.

Dr. Lance Ford
Educational Technology Advocate, Cisco

John Harrington
CEO, Funds for Learning

In this webinar, you’ll hear from Dr. Lance Ford, a Cisco educational technology advocate and educator who taught most recently at Howe Public Schools in Howe, Oklahoma. In spite of its small size, Howe made a commitment to revitalizing its network infrastructure and integrating technology into teaching and learning at all grade levels.

Achieving such a goal isn’t easy, but Howe has remained focused on an incremental approach to its technology investments—and E-rate funding has provided much needed financial support.

Dr. Ford will share insights on how E-rate funding has enabled Howe Public Schools to:

  • Deliver an innovative classroom experience for students and teachers
  • Provide for individualized student experiences
  • Enable incremental growth processes across the entire district
You’ll also hear from John Harrington, CEO of Funds for Learning, who shares Dr. Ford’s passion for E-rate and the possibilities it provides for digital transformation in education. He will help you see how the funding that enabled innovation at Howe Public Schools can have an impact on your district. He will also discuss the status of the E-rate program, including procurement best practices, the funding available today, and current filing deadlines.

At the end of the webinar, you’ll have an opportunity to engage in a question and answer session with panelists.
