Wi-Fi hubs on buses connect students in transit
from Education Week
As buses in Arizona's Vail school district rumble across the roads, pedestrians might spot a curious advertisement on their sides. Several of those yellow vehicles sport a sign declaring them to be an "Internet Bus" with Wi-Fi sponsored by a local business. It's just one of the ways that the 12,000-student district is trying to provide students with useful access to the Internet outside the school day and school buildings. Known for its emphasis on the digital — the district has a high school that uses only digital textbooks, and other schools in the system have extensive blended- and online-learning programs — the Vail district has transformed 12 of its 93 buses into rolling Wi-Fi hotspots.
