Digital Schools Network

The vision for Cisco's Digital Schools Network is for students to be able to learn without limits.

Technology is creating significant opportunities in K-12 school systems. It has the potential to transform the way young people learn, and how schools teach and engage with communities. More fundamentally, technology offers the potential to drive increased student engagement and improved outcomes.

Digital collaboration technology, in particular, has significant value for schools. One of the most powerful benefits of digital collaboration technology is for schools to create and sustain networks and communities of interest. As an example, collaboration technology is allowing schools to immerse themselves in virtual excursions from symphony orchestras, sports teams or global experts that were previously inaccessible. Cisco, as a global technology leader in education, also knows something about the power of networks.
