Providing free WiFi for Arizona public school students
Thanks to our partners at the Arizona Sun Corridor Network, Arizona’s public schools, public libraries and museums can help bridge the digital divide for their students through by participating in a free eduroam Support Organization.
eduroam is a secure, world-wide wireless roaming service developed for the international research and education community and is available in over 100 countries. In the US, more than 900 institutions have deployed eduroam and have made the offering available to their staff, students, faculty, and researchers.
Unlike public WiFi, an eduroam user -- in this case, Arizona's K-12 students -- can quickly and seamlessly authenticate to eduroam WiFi with a single, secure credential. The eduroam user’s device can automatically connect when visiting eduroam-enabled schools, libraries, museums, and other participating institutions. The Arizona Department of Education recognizes the value in this type of network and encourages eligible schools and institutions to join to expand the reach of Arizona’s eduroam Support Organization.
If you are interested in joining this eduroam Support Program, please reach out directly to the Sun Corridor Network.
