STAFFORD, TX. – (March 13, 2019) – The Stafford Civic Center was buzzing with the STEAMinecraft in EDU workshop for instructional technologists, tech coaches, STEAM teachers and more on Thursday, Feb. 28. For the first time in the civic center’s existence, high- speed Internet access was available and enabled attendees to work on the web. Internet access was established by Stafford-based Premier Wireless.
Jeff Oberlin of Premier Wireless worked closely with Jorge Rodriguez, Stafford Municipal School District (MSD)’s technology director, to provide high-speed data at the Stafford Civic Center. Oberlin installed a Sprint Magic Box, which tripled Sprint’s network speed and capacity, along with a Cradlepoint router to provide Internet access for all of the STEAMinecraft participants. With Internet access addressed, the attendees learned how to integrate Minecraft into classroom curriculum and instruction, how to make a STEAM lesson plan and how to provide formative assessments.
Premier Wireless has a long history of supporting Stafford MSD as well as many other school districts across the country. In January 2019, Premier donated more than $39,000 to SMSD to provide access to the Internet for its students who don’t have it at home, enabling them to complete homework assignments.
