Clearwire Partnership Improves Student Access To Mobile Broadband

ST. LOUIS, Mo., Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearwire, a leading provider of 4G wireless broadband services, has teamed up with the Innovative Technology Education Fund (ITEF) to bring CLEAR 4G devices and service to St. Louis Public Schools, namely Gateway STEM High School. Students of the EMT-B Program at Gateway now have access to mobile broadband, which allows them to stay connected in the classroom and in the field.

"For us, this partnership is a perfect example of what can happen when public, private and corporate entities come together to benefit one of our community's greatest resources, our youth," said Kevin Walker, ITEF board member. "Together we are bridging the digital divide and providing mobile learning opportunities to our deserving and hard-working students."

Gateway STEM High School is hosting a media event today at 11:00 a.m. to show the public how students are using CLEAR devices and service. Students are able to run the portable EKG software, take vital signs, assess a patient, and create reports virtually anywhere in the CLEAR coverage area.

"Mobile broadband is an integral part of modern learning and a necessary educational resource for students.  We are honored to provide the EMT students with real world technology so that they can complete their assignments on time, whether at school, in the field, or at home," said Paul McCarthy, Director of Spectrum Development at Clearwire.

Students will be on hand to share their experience with the EMT-B Program and the ways in which CLEAR technology has positively impacted their learning. Demonstrations and a mock emergency response drill are also part of the media open house.

"Because of our ability to provide students with access to mobile broadband, we've seen strong academic and career outcomes through the EMT Program," said Ken Riddle, EMT-B Program Director at Gateway STEM High School. "78% of our students pass their certifications, compared to the national average of 50%. Put simply, there is no other program like this."
