Qualcomm Inc., through its Wireless Reach initiative, and the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), announced the Designing Education Networks (DEN) initiative at the 2013 CoSN Conference in San Diego.
DEN will provide guidance and resources for school district technology decision-makers in developing wireless infrastructure to support a one-device-per student 24/7 learning environment.
That is increasingly important, given the movement from print to digital learning and the prospect of mobile technology to expand learning beyond the school walls.
CoSN is a professional association for school district technology leaders.
According to its new K-12 leadership survey, the top three priorities of district IT leaders are: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) efforts; being IT ready for the new Common Core Standards assessments; and broadband access.
The DEN initiative will provide vendor-neutral tools and resources to address those priorities.
The overall goal of DEN is to help put “always on, always connected” mobile devices in the hands of K-12 students and teachers by providing school systems with the knowledge to wisely invest in educational wireless networks for today and tomorrow.
“School leaders need high-quality, vendor neutral resources to enable them to make the best choices around digital learning infrastructure,” said Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN.
This summer, online resources will be made available that are focused on designing education networks for mobility, broadband and the management of multiple devices.
The DEN website with tools and resources will be launched in June 2013.
