Wilbanks Middle 8th graders take a virtual field trip to the Office of the Lt. Governor of Georgia
NGN is committed to enhancing the future of our communities through education. We have placed a priority on equipping K-20 educators with next generation technologies, high-speed fiber optic connectivity and a safe, private educational network for the exchange of ideas, content and resources.
NGN provides dedicated gigabit internet connectivity to schools in the region and has developed Georgia’s only regional 10-gigabit private cloud for exclusive use by the school systems.
Schools govern their content, activity and access to this cloud, which empowers them to create an educational experience without boundaries.
Here are some of the ways our schools are using the Education Exchange to accomplish amazing things:
- Distance learning
- Student connections to labs, teachers, and courses only available at other schools
- Early enrollment for high schoolers
- Real-time, two-way communication
- Person-to-person video conferencing
- Shared phone and television systems
- Cost savings through shared software, media licensing and other resources
