According to a report on WiFi in education, only a quarter of schools have a fully accessible wireless network, and if students are to have the chance to learn both in and out of lessons, Valerie Thompson of the eLearning Foundation argues that it needs to be addressed.
If schools are to use digital technology like iPad, 1:1 notebooks and other mobile devices, to their full potential, they need to make sure their wireless networks are up to scratch, Ms Thompson argued, according to a BBC news report, adding: “It’s vital to a 21st Century learning environment.”
