Perspectives on Broadband Infrastructure for Students – Podcast Episode 237 | Classnotes Podcast 237
Classnotes Podcast (October 2, 2023). Access to technology and the Internet are not luxuries. They are critical to life today, especially in education. But that access is limited in low-income communities and their schools. Solutions require us to consider all facets, from broadband policy at the state level to community input and action. IDRA’s conversation around the digital divide starts by analyzing the issue of equitable broadband infrastructure from the perspective and expertise of local industry leader, chief strategy officer and co-founder of Lit Communities (based in San Antonio), Rene Gonzalez, and Thomas Marshall III, M.Ed., and Christina Quintanilla-Muñoz, M.Ed., of IDRA. The conversation is facilitated by IDRA chief technology strategist, Michelle Vega.
Note that this episode was recorded during the 2021 Texas legislative session. For an update on what happened with policies they mentioned, see Texas Legislature Takes Some Steps Toward Addressing the Digital Divide, Thomas Marshall, June-July 2021.
