The mission to bring digital learning into our classrooms has been decades in the making. Back in 1996, President Clinton led 20,000 volunteers in an effort to connect California public schools to the “brave new world of mouse clicking and web surfing.” Oh, how far we’ve come. According to Futuresource Consulting, nearly half of K-12 students now have access to 1:1 computing.
Today, more and more school districts are closing the “connectivity gap,” providing students with unprecedented access to technology and new ways of learning. With more freedom comes more responsibility. In an era where educators and administrators are tasked with building safe and effective digital learning environments, online filtering tools are a must.
