Wi-Fi in Education Today
Let’s be honest – Wi-Fi is arguably one of the most important components to modern digital learning initiatives like classroom lipping, blended and online learning tools, and expanding online testing efforts. Unfortunately, there has not been the same rigorous emphasis on ensuring schools have the best options to implement Wi-Fi that supports these innovative ideas.
Controllers, with their heavy hardware approach, make growth difficult and upgrades even harder. Cloud-hosted Wi-Fi helped, but the focus only shifted to ease of use and management efficiencies, with little to no attention paid to fundamental Wi-Fi security and safety. And what good is a Wi-Fi network if students and teachers can simply hop on their own personal hotspots and completely bypass IT controls?
