CTL and Kajeet Announce Strategic Technology Partnership to Increase Digital Equity in Public Schools
-- At the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Conference in San Antonio, TX, CTL, and Kajeet announced a partnership that would bridge the "homework gap," that exists for low-income students. --

    CARSON CITY, NV, July 19, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to recent studies, 7 in 10 teachers assign homework that requires access to broadband. According to the Pew Research Center over five million households with students do not have broadband internet service. The Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) study, Taking the Pulse of the High School Student in America, found that nearly 50 percent of all students said they have been unable to complete their homework because they didn't have access to the Internet or a computer.

With the CTL / Kajeet partnership, students are able to check out Kajeet SmartSpot devices overnight from their school library and use them with their CTL Chromebooks.

"Mobile hotspots have made it possible for us to bring the world to ALL of our kids despite their resources. We are so fortunate to have this solution for our students in need." Susan Jensen, Principal, White Pine Middle School, Ely, Nevada

"There are many, many students across America without Internet at home. Together with CTL , we are thrilled to address this very critical issue, specifically in Nevada," said Daniel Neal, CEO and founder of Kajeet. "As teachers increase their reliance on technology and Internet resources to achieve success in the classroom, it is essential for school administrators to ensure their students have not only the right tools to do homework but have those tools accessible when
needed."

"By partnering with Kajeet , CTL is helping to improve access for students who don't have the resources to get their homework done at home," said Erik Stromquist, President, CTL . "Combining our laptop devices with the Kajeet SmartSpot means that together we can level the playing field for all students."
