EQUITY IN OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN
In cooperation with the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED), we are piloting datacasting as a method of improving learning in the home, especially for families whose internet access is not strong enough to support online learning. Under the terms of the Yazzie/Martinez Lawsuit, every family must have a computing device available for learning, a connection that lets learners stream a video, upload/download files, and participate in online learning using the systems it provides.
To accomplish these goals, our Datacasting Pilot is seeking parents and teachers to join DART – Datacasting Action Research Teams, who together will produce a final product called the “Datacasting Family Cookbook: Recipes for Improving Learning @ Home”

How fast is your home internet?
An important part of our research is understanding the internet speeds of our stakeholders from their homes. This data will help us develop a strategy on how to better serve families in our area.
