  • What will open wireless look like at H-B? - Use of personal devices

    Posted by Teri Doxsee at 5/18/2011 12:30:00 PM
    APS is installing a more robust wireless infrastruction in order to allow both APS-owned and personal devices to connect wirelessly and receive services.  This means students and staff will be able to bring their personal laptops, iPads, phones and other devices that connect to the internet using wifi.
     
    What will open wireless look like at H-B?  How will this change things in your classroom?  What are the good and bad implications of students using personal devices at school? 
     
    Please give us your comments and opinions.
