Students spend an average of 30 minutes sitting on a school bus everyday. What if they can use this time to become more productive? What if they can use the time to catch up on schoolwork? This can be possible by putting WiFi on board.
To make sure that students are being productive, options such as SmartBus offer WiFi that automatically filters out inappropriate content, social media distractions, and entertainment sites like Spotify and Netflix. It provides access only to resources that can improve students’ potential for intellectual growth.
Below are the benefits of having WiFi on school buses:
· Increased homework completion – Districts that have already implemented the technology have seen homework completion rates rise.
· Helps students become more productive – Many students today are overbooked because of their long list of activities that include sports practice, tutoring, SAT prep, and even part-time jobs. By giving them WiFi access on school bus, they will have more time to finish schoolwork.
· Improve behavior – Many kids with behaviour issues need a distraction in order to keep their cool. If they are anxious about bus rides or simply can’t sit still, it becomes difficult for bus drivers to maintain order onboard. Providing kids with WiFi onboard will give them a reason to look forward to bus rides.
