    Would you rate your schools' Internet speed as fast, average, or painful?

      At the beginning of the Internet revolution, most schools with limited funds built small Internet pipes. This is because most resources that our teachers and students needed were located in the school, locally, and those small pipes worked fine. However, today content resources have moved to—and exploded on—the Internet. There are tools that can help us better assess student performance and knowledge. There are educational resources and apps in the "cloud" that bring current events into the classroom.  There are tools that teachers can use to better assess and adapt to student learning styles.  All this means that there are more students in more classrooms who are using more desktop, laptop, notepad, and even smartphone devices that demand more resources through those small pipes.
