two of the Connect Alaska look at Metlakatla and the “Digitizing
Broadband Strategies” Project.
Watch the video chronicling just one small part of a larger AASB project focused on research and e-commerce across the state! This effort is championed by the AASB’s Consortium for Digital Learning (AASB/CDL), and is partially funded through a State Broadband Initiative grant awarded to the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development, and Connect Alaska.
E-Commerce is helping many Alaskans revolutionize their home-spun businesses. Made-In-Alaska goods are now going global thanks to the Internet! Check out this video blog from Steve Nelson, Project Coordinator with the Association of Alaska School Boards: E-Commerce In Metlakatla from Connected Nation on Vimeo. Be sure to follow Connect Alaska on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest technology news from across the state.

Alaska is preparing for major expansion of the state’s broadband infrastructure.
But, with a small density of population spread out over a geography that is bigger than most countries, you can imagine the incredible and unique challenges the state faces.
Now, these challenges are taken into consideration in the Alaska Broadband Task Force’s report: Blueprint for Alaska’s Broadband Future!
The Alaska Broadband Task Force was formed by the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development Commissioner Susan Bell to study the state’s current broadband landscape and come up with a plan to expand Alaska’s broadband for the state’s 21st century needs.
After more than two years of hard work, the detailed report is complete! A Blueprint for Alaska’s Broadband Future delves into the state’s current opportunities and challenges and makes recommendations on broadband expansion plans that will ensure Alaska remains relevant in the global economy.
This video blog explains the important and tedious work the Task Force has faced and why broadband expansion is so critical to the future of Alaska.
WATCH: Upward Bound Prepares Alaska Students for College Success
By CAK Staff
Thanks to a program called Upward Bound, rural Alaska high school students are getting a better shot at higher education!
The goal of Upward Bound is to improve the graduation rates of high school students and increase the number of Upward Bound graduates who enter colleges and universities. Since many of the students come from parts of the state where connectivity is lacking, one of the most important things they learn through the program are the skills necessary to use technology and broadband to further their education.
This video blog is a great example of how one student, Mary Pingayak from Chevak is using what she learned in multimedia to help document her experience in the Upward Bound program while encouraging others to give it a try!
Alaska's annual Iditarod is legendary!
around the world turn to the dog teams and mushers each year. And now,
to broadband technology and GPS, you're able to experience Alaska's
race like never before!
