Green Bay Takes A New Approach To WiFi

Feb 14, 2014

WIFI TO GO: Green Bay Public Schools is taking a new approach to WiFi. Instead of relying solely on site based routers, the district is experimenting with Kajeet mobile hotspots to deliver 4G LTE to up to 10 students at a time. As part of a pilot, students in grades 6 through 12 can check out their school-issued Chromebooks along with this mobile hotspot, which means that even students who don't have WiFi at home can still work on online-based assignments. The district has also purchased 3,000 Chromebooks as part of the pilot to provide one-to-one computing to 14% of the district's 22,000 students. Check out T.H.E. Journal for more.
