The grant will to help 413 DPS households that currently do not have Internet access, receive free broadband. It will benefit DPS students by allowing them to continue their learning outside of the classroom. This proposal will expose students to a variety of resources and programs online, help them develop a familiarity with the academic and business components of the Internet, and help them to become independent learners. Students will use the DPS provided online services for books provided by Learning Village, video lecture from Blackboard Collaborate and email through Gaggle. They will also use online encyclopedias, student-friendly research databases, proper email procedures, blogging, and a class website to help them develop the skills required of 21st Century students.
