Wi-Fi networks have the potential to deliver educational benefits to support teaching and learning in a number of ways in schools. They can help to facilitate classroom situations which are more supportive of a student centred active learning model.
The main benefits are:
- More flexible access to learning opportunities and online resources for teacher and student via mobile WiFi devices
- Teachers can access and incorporate e-Learning curriculum relevant resources into lessons on a regular basis
- Students will be given more opportunities for mobile, flexible e-Learning, including access to curriculum relevant resources with guidance of the teacher
Students experience e-Learning activities regularly Wi-Fi coverage can be extended to areas which are difficult or expensive to cable. Examples include older buildings, remote buildings, temporary classrooms, open plan areas such as halls and libraries, and outdoor areas.
