I just found out via phone that our wireless grant has been approved and fully funded. This is excellent news for our schools who have been unable/unwilling to put dollars into infrastructure that doesn't appear to have any immediate return in test scores.
I am hoping that it will foster some mobile learning and mobile teaching, and I'm going to make sure that all visitors to the schools know that there is a network connection for them if they need it.
Now that kids don't have to sit in a lab for test taking or research, perhaps a few more of them will perform slightly better on both tasks.
Even better, we have to spend the money by June 30th! This means we'll take delivery by the middle of July and have everything in place for September!
I'm very excited.
Any suggestions on a killer wireless application?
