Children are constantly learning and there are many types of organizations that provide academic support and activities in local communities. As these organizations work to close the achievement gap it is important to also provide the necessary tools to close the technology gap that is now emerging in some communities. The Kajeet SmartSpot™ provides local organizations with a scalable and economic tool to provide Internet access to children not just during program hours, but also at home.
By providing a SmartSpot™ with Sentinel® managed Internet access, a local program can provide connectivity to disadvantaged students without the worry that it will be abused. Use can be restricted to a single program (such as distance learning), a selection of websites (a white list), categories of content or any combination thereof. By restricting the use of high-bandwidth protocols to specific academic use, cost can be controlled and limited to a specific budget, grant program or other funding source. With detailed activity reports, usage can be examined and aligned to ensure compliance with a funding source’s intent.
While schools might adopt a 1:1 technology deployment, local educational organizations don’t share the financial resources of a local school district. With Kajeet a local organization can take advantage of our unique Kajeet for Education Technology Loan Program. Using a library checkout system as a model, your organization can keep devices on the shelf and available for use. The most commonly used device is a Kajeet SmartSpot™ that can provide 3G mobile broadband Internet access to any WiFi-capable device. When not in use, there's no cost - no rate plan or fees to worry about. When borrowed by a student outside of the program, it is set to only access specific resources for the purpose it is being checked out for and thus keeps costs for low for your organization.
