Connecting the classroom through digital learning.

T-Mobile is supporting greater educational engagement by bringing customized, end to end mobility solutions to our schools.  

Schools and libraries E-Rate program

Mobile devices are now being used at all levels in K–12 schools — it’s transforming the educational process. Teachers are more productive and empowered with mobile tools, and learning is now personalized to fit students’ unique needs, increasing educational engagement.

Ideally, each student uses one mobile device exclusively for 1:1 mobile learning. K–12 educators have embraced the need for 1:1 mobile learning, but face challenges, including:

  • Outdated infrastructure
  • Lack of professional development and training
  • Conflicting technology and curriculum goals
  • Ongoing support issues
  • Security concerns
  • Uncertain funding

At T-Mobile we offer comprehensive, customized 1:1 solutions for K–12 schools and districts that address each of these challenges.  Our K–12 specialists bring together a wide range of T-Mobile devices, applications, and integration partners to build customized solutions that can fit your school’s needs. From planning and acquisition to support and ongoing maintenance, we embrace collaboration every step of the way.

And we do it without all the baggage the other carriers bring. With T-Mobile, you get:

  • No annual service contracts
  • Unlimited data option
  • No overage charges while operating on our network

Contact one of our T-Mobile K-12 specialists to talk about the right 1:1 mobile learning solution for your school.

Questions on eRates Program?

    Eligible participants include public and most non-profit K-12 schools as well as all public and many private libraries. Eligibility to participate in the level of funding available to any particular applicant through E-Rate is determined by USAC and is based on a coefficient of location and the percentage of the student population that qualifies to participate in the National School Lunch Free or Reduced Cost Meal Program.

    If you are unfamiliar with E-Rate, a good first step is to learn about E-Rate eligibility and eligible services. If you are an applicant (a school, library, district, or consortium), you can review the application process. Once you understand the process, click on the Before You Begin link to learn about what you need to know before you file your first form.

    USAC has developed some helpful handouts to help make the application process easier to understand, including an SL Process Overview for Applicants handout.
