There’s a major gap between the schools, people, and organizations who can afford high-speed connections and those who cannot.</p><br/><p>Imagine a classroom with wi-fi versus one without. The former can <a rel="nofollow" href="http://edudemic.com/2012/08/how-to-engage-with-active-learners-in-the-classroom/">launch a 1:1 iPad program, BYOD, and deploy all kinds of new technology</a>. The latter classroom is tethered to a single desktop or laptop computer at best.</p><br/><p>Now, imagine that you don’t have any internet connectivity at all. As prices rise and data gets capped, it’s not surprising to see this becoming a likely future for many educators around the globe.</p><br/><p>Some are trying to reverse the current trend and actually trying to make internet connectivity affordable. In Chicago, Comcast and Mayor Rahm Emanuel have just announced the second year of its trendsetting <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.fiercecable.com/press-releases/comcast-chicago-mayor-rahm-emanuel-civic-and-community-leaders-kick-year-tw" target="_blank">Internet Essentials program</a>. Basically, people in Chicago can get internet access for $10/month with no price increases, activation fees, or additional costs. It’s helped more than 400,000 people get connected.</p><br/><p>So what if we did this for schools in the U.S. and other countries? What if Internet was either cheap or free? How would that work? Here are my 5 reasons and explanations as to why I think internet connectivity should be considered a right and not a privilege.</p><br/><h2>Learning is now a global process</h2></div></div></div>
