Upgrading data communication in the classroom would be an appropriate technological advantage because research indicates that broadband and cloud computing are transforming education. The outdated teaching tools that we grew up with (i.e. chalkboards and hardback books) are now being replaced with interactive digital content delivered through high-speed broadband using blackboard and e-books. This means elementary school students can explore the surface of the sun through high-definition video as they learn about the solar system. Furthermore, middle school children can experience history lessons through interactive videos and high school students can discover geometry through gaming (Robyler, M. D. & Edwards, J., 2000, p. 79). Consequently, accessing broadband for digital learning is a necessity for students to have a chance to compete in todays’ technological society. From a pedagogical standpoint, updating communications in the classroom creates an environment of enrichment and engages students actively in the learning process. Upgrading the data communications in the classroom from a programmatic perspective enables students and teachers to quickly access the database, monitor seismographic data, and establish electronic pen pals in Latin America (Picciano, 2011, p. 110).
