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.

invests in improving the skills of teachers,
ensuring that every educator in America receives
support and training to use technology to help

investments will allow our teachers and students
to take full advantage of feature-rich educational

standards being adopted and implemented by
States across America.
