Internet is Not an Amenity, it is an Expectation
K-12 students are digital natives from their toddler years. Access to technology is all they’ve known.
At school, they continuously learn and master an ever-expanding array of tools, seeking a learning experience that models the real world – a world in which work and play go hand in hand.
Spoiled for choice and armed with a constant feedback loop online, our kids see a problem and don’t hesitate to take matters into their own hands. As a mother of two college-age children, I’ve seen how students bombard social media and explore off-campus housing options if they are unhappy with their school’s internet and video amenities. My daughter left her residential hall because the lack of Wi-Fi was a major hassle.
