President Obama’s new ConnectED initiatives has
the following goals:
• Upgraded Connectivity: The ConnectED
initiative will, within five years, connect 99% of
America’s students to the digital age through
next-generation broadband and high-speed
wireless in their schools and libraries.
• Trained Teachers: The ConnectED initiative
invests in improving the skills of teachers,
ensuring that every educator in America receives
support and training to use technology to help
improve student outcomes. The Department
of Education will work with states and school
districts to better use existing funding through
the Elementary and Secondary Education Act

• Build on Private-Sector Innovation: These
investments will allow our teachers and students
to take full advantage of feature-rich educational

software (including applications) providing
content aligned with college- and career-ready
standards being adopted and implemented by
States across America.
