From the Introduction: "The U.S. Department of Education's National Educational Technology Plan (NETP) presents a model of learning powered by technology to help the nation's schools provide all students with engaging and powerful learning content, resources, and experiences. Technology can give students 24/7 access to information and resources that enable them to find, curate, and create content and connect with people all over the world to share ideas, collaborate, and learn new things. For the vision established by the NETP to be fully realized, access to online tools and resources needs to be reliable and ubiquitous inside as well as outside school. [...] This guide provides practical, actionable information intended to help both technical personnel and educational leaders navigate the many decisions required to deliver broadband connectivity to students. It presents a variety of options for school and district leaders to consider when making technology infrastructure decisions, recognizing that circumstances and context vary greatly from district to district."
