The Clarendon Foundation provides wireless modems to a number of partner schools at little or no cost. Wireless modems allow Internet access for laptop and portable computers and eliminate the need for a wired connection. In that way, many students can simultaneously use their laptops at school without worrying about connecting to a telephone or cable line. Wireless Internet connections are typically faster than other Internet connections, which also makes them responsive and easy to use for students and teachers alike.
Although having the right equipment is just the first step in the process of facilitating student learning, it is also an essential one. By giving schools access to the wireless modems they need, Clarendon helps partner schools take that step.
