The Wheels on the Bus...Have WiFi?

School bus

Here's a headline for you: Wi-Fi-enabled school buses leave no child offline.

A special report from PBS covers how one superintendent made access to internet a top priority at one of the poorest districts in the nation. Here's a hint - he used school buses to get it done. Great story. Give it a click.

We also ate up some pieces this week on how schools were using edtech during school cancellations that followed Storm Jonas on the East Coast. Also some good reads on Google Doc add-ons and strategies for empowering girls to learn coding.

Another happy edtech roundup, to be sure.
