The Clarendon Foundation believes that education is the key to empowering young people. Wireless technology has the ability to enhance the scholastic experience of young people in the 22 markets where it operates, but modems alone are not enough. They must be paired with other wireless technology, such as computers and two-way conferencing equipment, so that the wireless technology can provide a door to the Internet and broaden the learning resources available through schools by:
- Giving students and teachers access to remote libraries, schools, and government agencies. That access creates a broader, better educational process.
- Preparing students for workplace where technology is an integral part.
As experts look at patterns of Internet access in schools, they might also be able to better determine ways in which students will be prepared to use the same technology after graduation.
