Broadband Reality Check II
  • Prices skyrocketing

    options available today to rural/remote that 5
    years ago
  • Availability is only cable and DSL and 40 of
    zipcodes have only one provider
  • Cost real issue globally

Rural BroadbandAccountability Lacking
  • Complexity Confusion-Consolidation
  • Poor data on deployed networks (FCC Form 477)
  • Changing company names
  • Fiber there but dark not used
  • Older lines equipment and MORE

Strategic Partnerships
  • Public private partnerships what might work
  • Rural Cooperatives
  • Local Entrepreneurs
  • Involvement of universities and consortia

Key Sources
  • Measuring Broadbands Economic Impact Lehr et
  • Rising Above the Gathering Storm Energizing and
    Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future
    NAS, NAE and Institute of Medicine

Who Can Deploy A Network?
  • Barriers to entry Direct and Indirect
  • Different conditions and requirements for
    different businesses
  • Fiber Deployed for Other Use Lottery
  • Rural Deployment is a political and possibly
    economic issue not technical

Rural Population Needs
  • Knowledgable Leadership
  • Training for Seniors
  • Relevant Programs/Applications
  • Access and Reasonable Cost (competition)
  • Net Neutrality
  • Local Control

Innovation Everywhere Critical
  • At the beginning of the 21st century the U.S.
    stands at a crossroads. The only way for this
    nation to remain a high-wage, high-technology
    country is to remain at the forefront of
    innovation. Achieving this goal will require
    that the nation remain a leader in the scientific
    and technologic research that contributes so
    heavily to innovation. Rising Above the
    Gathering Storm

Meaningful Education ReformCrisis in Mathematics
and Science
  • Will we leave rural America behind as we improve
    quality and change institutional structure of
  • Examples Use of technology for dual enrollment
    in high school and college Advanced Placement,
    International Baccalaureate courses, global
    seminars, access to advanced computational and
    computing resources and instruments

Broadband Matters Growing Up
  • More than 12 million public school students
    attend schools in communities of 25,000 or less
  • 8.8 million students attend school in communities
    of fewer than 2500 (19)
  • Rural education outcomes most important in
    Midwest, Northern New England, Central
    Appalachia, Mid-South Delta and Southeast

State Priority Rankings Why Rural Matters (2005)
Outcome Challenges
  • Mississippi North Carolina
  • New Mexico Arizona
  • Kentucky West Virginia
  • Louisiana
  • Alabama
  • South Carolina
  • Arkansas

Broadband MattersEconomic Development
  • Communities with Mass Market Broadband between
    1998 and 2002 experienced more rapid growth in
    1)employment, 2) the number of businesses overall
    and 3) IT intensive businesses
  • Conclusion the assumed (and oft-touted) economic
    impacts of BB are real and measurable (early
    results Lehr et al)

Community Networking Examples
  • Chesterhill
  • ADEC/AISEP The Ohio State and OARnet Community
  • Posy Place Flower Shop, Library, Ohio Learning
    Network, Training Courses
  • Featured in New York Times May 3, 2006
  • The Columbus Dispatch June 16, 2006

Access to and Usage ofChicken and Egg
  • Usage and content develop simultaneously
  • Service becomes more valuable as the quality and
    variety of content improves but investment in
    content depends on usage.
  • Those who dont purchase BB apparently dont
    believe the content justifies price

Growing Old BB MattersNational Benefits Litan
  • Greater benefits to deployment to older Americans
    and Americans with disabilities (rural as well as
  • Less Isolation Better Well-being
  • Medical Cost Savings
  • Less Institutionalization
  • Earn Income Longer
  • Chronic Disease Monitoring
  • Access to Information

Broadband Policies
  • Most agree that rapid deployment of BB and rapid
    uptake of BB can be good for individuals,
    communities and society
  • Could result in increased labor force
    participation by seniors and those with
    disabilities more remote work less drain on
    Medicare and disability payments - Litan

Big Question How?
  • Subsidies yes or no and IF WHERE
  • Regulation Federal, State, Local with what
    impacts? (poor baseline date to begin with)
  • Players Few large cable and telephone could mean
    slow BB growth in rural areas, higher prices AND
    lack of innovation and competitiveness

Big Questions
  • Taxes small amount of tax seems not to impact
    uptake larger amount may (GAO)
  • What is competition? How do we level the playing
    field in rural America? How do we prevent
    blocking behavior by big players who might want
    to develop later?
  • How do we get investment in content development?

Academic Trends - Global
  • Knowledge and information growing exponentially
    no one can be expert networks critical
  • Instruction is becoming more learner centers,
    non-linear and self directed
  • Growing emphasis on academic accountability-demons
    trate competency
  • Outsourcing and partnerships increasing

Key Findings-Professional Development
  • Widespread Use of E-Learning 60 of respondent
    organizations are using or planning to use this
    year 36 more are interested
  • Vast majority of organizations satisfied88
  • Wide variety of uses self-paced E-Learning most
  • Key benefits convenience, access and cost

Sloan C Survey-2004 Data
  • Approximately 2.35 million students studying
  • Online growth accelerating expect 2005 3
    million taking course/courses online
  • ADEC/NASULGC partnership

Sloan C (cont.)
  • Students as satisfied with online as face to face
  • Schools believe online learning is critical to
    their long-term strategy
  • Three quarters of academic leaders at public
    colleges and universities believe that online
    learning quality is equal to or superior to face
    to face instruction

Online Learning Continuum
  • No online learning content TRADITIONAL
  • 1-29 may use a CMS, web pages, modules,virtual
    field trips, simulation, visualization to small
    degreeWEB ENHANCED
  • 30-79 Substantial proportion of content is
    delivered online BLENDED/HYBRID
  • 80 Little or no face to face ONLINE

Learner Centered Active LearningPew Grant
Lessons Learned
  • Continuous assessment and feedback
  • Student to student discussion and projects
  • Interactive learning modules
  • Use of undergraduate learning assistants
  • Increase flexibility but students need structure
  • Student centered concrete learning plan with
    specific mastery components and milestones of

Pew Lessons Learned (cont)
  • Increase efficiency larger student enrollments,
    blended classes, reduce costs, consolidate
    sections and courses
  • Faculty who are willing to use an appropriate
    blend of homegrown and free or purchased learning
    materials from others have a large headstart
    critical success factor

Pew Lessons Learned (cont)
  • Online course management system
  • Online tutorials
  • Online CMC system
  • Online automated assessment of exercises, quizzes
    and tests
  • Shared resources collaboration and partnerships
    dont do it all locally

Todays Learners
  • The modern college student is interested in
    online learning, small modules and short
    programsand in learning that can be done at home
    and fitted around work, family and social
    obligations (Tony Bates)

Learners Today
  • Information-age learners prefer doing to knowing,
    trial and error to logic and typing to
    handwriting. Multitasking is a way of life for
    them, staying connected is essential and there is
    zero tolerance for delays. Modern literacy
    includes not only text but also image and screen
    literacy it involves navigating information and
    assembling knowledge from fragments (Oblinger
    Jones and Pritchard)

Todays Adult Learner
  • Pragmatic, problem solver
  • Self-directed and goal and relevancy oriented
    they need the rationale for what they are
    learning. They are motivated by professional
    advancement, external expectations, the need to
    better serve others, social relationships, and
    pure interest in the subject.

Items Being Studied
  • Completion and retention rates
  • Maturity and learner motivation
  • Division of labor unbundling faculty role new
    kinds of instructional staff adjusts team
    including administrators, instructional
