Be Connected: NetRef Internet Bandwidth Report

July 14 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

Free

Ensuring digital equity in our schools first requires knowing exactly what capabilities your institution does and does not possess. Join the LTC’s Chris Wherley as we discuss NetRef’s Internet Bandwidth Report, one of the best available resources for appraising your district’s digital capacity. NetRef’s Internet Bandwidth Report offers a detailed look at how your students are using the internet and allows you to allocate your resources based upon current standards and best practices for digital resource utilization.

Be Connected is a weekly webinar series from the LTC focused on facilitating open discussions about pertinent topics within Illinois’ edtech community. Hosted by the LTC’s Chris Wherley and Eric Muckensturm, each session will focus on a specific topic and provide space for participants to ask and answer questions in a relaxed, supportive environment.

Each week will feature a different core topic and a fresh opportunity to connect with your peers. So, be sure to check the LTC events calendar routinely so that you can join in the discussion and Be Connected.
