'Broadband Matters' to educators in April
High-speed broadband is changing the education landscape in Iowa. Broadband advocates are invited to two April 9 events connected to the Iowa Communications Network’s Broadband Matters campaign:
• ICN’s Broadband Matters Legislative Day will be held from 8:30-10:30 a.m. in the Legislative Dining Room at the State Capitol in Des Moines. This event is an opportunity to build relationships with legislators and fellow advocates while making a difference in broadband policies that impact state government, public safety, education, and health care.
• The ICN’s Broadband Matters Education Roundtable Forum will be held from 1:30-3 p.m. in the Grimes State Office Building in Des Moines and broadcast statewide. Iowa Department of Education Director Brad Buck will be one of five panelists. Iowans can watch the discussion from six locations throughout the state and may interact with panelists by mentioning @BroadbandIowa on Twitter. Questions will be addressed during the Q&A session.

The Broadband Matters campaign is dedicated to providing awareness of the critical need to connect every student with high-speed Internet access to ensure a 21st century education. Broadband creates a culture in which learning becomes more interactive in and outside of the classroom allowing for a more positive collaborative learning experience.
