$2 Billion in Free or Deeply Discounted Software and Services for Your School

ConnectEDClose to $2 billion dollars in private company resources will flow into US schools through the ConnectED Initiative over the next three to four years.

At a recent event organized by the State Educational Technology Directors Association, ten companies shared the specifics around what resources are available to schools and how they could be accessed.

ConnectED is an initiative created by President Obama which calls for:

  • Increased broadband and high-speed wireless access in classrooms;
  • Access to learning devices;
  • Training and support for educators;
  • High quality digital learning resources.

This is a great opportunity for educational technology integrators and leaders to apply for and receive access to resources that may otherwise be financially out of reach.  For further details on what each of the participating companies are offering, see this ConnectED partner page at the SETDA website.
