The global COVID-19 pandemic is shining a bright light on the role of the Internet in keeping us all connected. But many Minnesota students lack access to the technology they need for remote learning. Partnership for a ConnectedMN was created by philanthropic and business leaders, in collaboration with Governor Tim Walz and Lt. Governor Flanagan, to ensure Minnesota’s students from disinvested communities have the tech devices and high-speed internet connectivity they need to learn, thrive and prosper. Bernadine Joselyn, Director of Public Policy & Engagement for Grand Rapids-based Blandin Foundation, will describe why and how the Partnership was formed, and how the funds it is raising are being used to ensure that schools and teachers are prepared to offer equitable access to quality distance learning this fall and for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
