Student success looks quite different today than it has in the past. As the picture of success changes, so too do the types of learning opportunities we need to create for our students.

In our new eBook, “Empowered Education,” we address how educators can empower students to achieve increasingly greater levels of success, from providing baseline connectivity and access to driving innovation and a love of learning. Check out an excerpt of the book below, and read the full book here.

The primary mission of every school is to give every student the opportunity to achieve success. This is not a provocative statement. Every teacher, administrator, policymaker, parent, and student commits to this core aspiration. Primary, secondary, or higher ed. Public or private. Non-profit or for-profit. Large or small. Urban or rural. Past, present, and future. They are all concerned, first and foremost, with helping students succeed.

However, the world is changing quickly—and the education landscape is shifting under our feet. Advancements in pedagogy, evaluation, and student engagement are improving education daily. But challenges—old and new—threaten progress and jeopardize student success. That’s why Cisco is committed to forward-thinking solutions that lay the framework for connected campuses, empowered educators, informed administrators, and students who have the tools they need for success in a new digital world.

What does student success look like in today’s world? Let’s take a look.
