CMN Participates in Broadband National Summit

Broadband Adoption and Usage - What Have We Learned?

 

Tamara Cox-Burnett, Community Technology Center (CTC) director at the College of Menominee Nation, was a panelist on "Discussion of Best Practices Learned from Implementing Broadband Adoption Programs Within Different Communities" at the Federal-State Joint Conference on Advanced Services Summit held February 7, 2013, in Washington, DC.  The purpose of the Summit was to identify and discuss best practices learned from broadband adoption programs and academic studies/surveys, and how implementation of these best practices can close the broadband adoption gap among Americans – particularly low-income households, racial and ethnic minorities, seniors, rural residents, residents of Tribal lands and people with disabilities.

 

Cox-Burnett presented information on the CTC’s reach including training hours, number of participants, activities, adoption of technology, and challenges. You can view her PowerPoint presentation here.

 

The Summit was open to the public and available via live webcast. The archived webcast will be available in its entirety here.
