If you are like me you have seen the positive impact that Internet access can have on student learning both inside and outside of school. Please take just a few minutes to create a 15 second video explaining why all students across the country deserve Internet access in their schools. Here is the text you can use in a tweet or status update:
#Internet4schools matters - Tell @FCC to vote YES and bring Internet to all schools with a 15 second video
Video I created
Once your video is created share across social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Instagram. I made the video above quickly using Instagram. I suggest you also tag some of your connected friends in your social media update to make this initiative go viral in a similar way to the Ice Bucket Challenge earlier this year. Bottom line - all students deserve quality Internet access in schools so that they can use real world tools to do real world work, develop digital literacy skills, collaborate with peers, unleash creativity, and find more relevance in their learning.
