Many school districts have various technology initiatives to extend the learning opportunities for students outside of the classroom. One Initiative, equipping school buses with Wi-Fi connectivity has met with much success and proved well worth the investment. The initial use case has expanded beyond allowing students to complete coursework to and from school. School bus travel time is essentially learning time whether students are being transported to and from school, on field trips, sporting events or other school-sanctioned excursions.
