In the article Opening up the networks for learners by David Warlick describes a school obtaining wifi throughout their school and it is a good thing because students get bored during off hours while sometimes they need to finish up homework. David Warlick describes 1,200 out of 2,000 of the enrolled use some type of device to get on the internet or use wifi. This is outstanding 60% of the students have some sort of means for internet access. Parents went out and bought notebooks for their kids because this school was adding wifi. The parents must be dedicated to that school to get a laptop just because wifi was getting built in at a school. Kids should have some type of mobile device just for those times. Having wifi built in to a school is one of the many good things school can and should do.
