How wide is the digital divide?
In the first episode of The Great Indoors, Season 5, host Matt Roberts of Amdocs sits down with Dr. Kiesha King, the Senior National Education Administrator for T-Mobile, a teacher, a principal and executive director of curriculum and technology in a district of 70,000 students.
“Having access to the internet allows us to then open a world of opportunities to those students. Absolutely. And that's exactly what Project 10 Million seeks to do.“
They discuss some of the current challenges that school districts and state leaders are facing with regard to education, and how T-Mobile is taking the initiative to help bridge the divide.
“The network allows customers to really experience the network like oxygen. It is there is supporting what they need and they don't need to worry about it… and that's what we're trying to achieve here in AT&T.”
Matt also sits down with Jeff Luong, President of Access and Adoption Initiatives at AT&T, to discuss how the company is helping to bridge the digital divide, increase access and foster connection across the country.
