Kajeet provides mobile Education Broadband to connect students anytime, anywhere they engage in learning. We are driven to make this solution affordable so we can connect as many disadvantaged students as possible within limited budgets. Thus, Education Broadband is designed to block inappropriate content and minimize non-educational activities that consume bandwidth and drive up costs for the entire system. A school or district is not limited on bandwidth for educational sites.
Kajeet works with schools and districts to ensure any site required for student success is allowed and legitimately used for education. Our Fair-Use policy adapts frequently as the Internet evolves, new protocols emerge, and new apps present threats or distractions.
Education broadband service provided under the Kajeet Managed Service Plan is intended for educational use only with one user per device. In the event Kajeet detects bandwidth consumption inconsistent with educational use, Kajeet may temporarily block such service while conducting further review. This learning system allows Kajeet to continually refine our Managed Service to deliver the most cost-effective education broadband service possible and to identify new potential threats to student learners quickly and efficiently.
Education Broadband comes with two, pre-configured settings: K-8 students and 9-12 students.
According to a recent report from network vendor Ericsson, and its Mobility Report, two-thirds of data traffic on mobile networks comes from Facebook (16%), YouTube (15%), Netflix (12%), Instagram (9%), and SnapChat (9%). At Kajeet, our experience has shown that YouTube, Social Media sites, and App sites can represent as much as 90% of student consumed unfiltered wireless data.
Because Education Broadband service is paid for by the school or district, it is designed to allow students to access tools for learning, but curb the natural temptation to have the SmartSpot and broadband access become their source for television shows, gaming, social networks, and video chatting.
YouTube is a public forum with far more non-educational and inappropriate content than educational. As a result, your Education Broadband default setting is to block YouTube and other streaming media content except for those specific videos that have been designated as educational.
We want to make every effort to ensure students are able to access the educational media content they need without disruption. Education Broadband does allow access to over 500,000 education videos via streaming sites such as: SchoolTube™, TeacherTube™, Khan Academy™, PBS™, Discovery Education™, and TED™. For those districts that wish to offer unfiltered YouTube access to their students, Kajeet offers an optional plan to allow such access.
If there are specific educational resources your students need to access, Kajeet can narrowly tailor modifications to the filter so that we do not open up significant non-educational use by students.
The following options are available for accessing streaming media/videos for educational purposes on the Kajeet Managed Plan:
Please note: Requests for entire category changes or allowing complete web sites (e.g: History.com) are subject to review and consideration, not guaranteed.
