How Fiber Internet Improves Education

Posted on Aug 07 2022 in Southeastern Indiana REMC

While you’re checking off the items on that back-to-school list, you might want to consider adding SEI Fiber to the list.  

Fast and reliable internet is an important part of your student’s education. It helps he or she download assignments, upload homework, and access resources. It also helps he or she connect with classmates and instructors and participate in off-site learning when necessary.  

Many textbooks are accessed online, which means that schools are investing in technology and equipment such as tablets and other devices that connect to the internet rather than replacing outdated textbooks. A fiber broadband connection helps these devices perform better.  

Many schools issue each student a tablet or Chromebook for the school year to complete lessons and submit assignments. Lessons are often supplemented by audio, video, and interactive elements that must be accessed online. These digital learning materials help students engage with the content on a deeper level, but without high-speed internet, these tools and resources cannot be accessed and utilized. 

Do your kids ever have to work on group projects? If you don’t have high-speed internet, you may become frustrated trying to schedule a time for the students to get together outside of the classroom to work on their project. With fiber internet, they can do a lot of the work online! 

Fiber internet is also helpful in speeding up the time it takes to complete homework after school. It helps them research and complete assignments quickly, so they can enjoy the evening with family and friends.  

We all want to give our children the best opportunity for success. An investment in fiber internet, is not just another item on the school supply list. It’s an investment in your child’s future.
