In the article “Opening up the network to learners” by David Warlick, talks about how schools in Edmonton are creating open Wi-Fi spots for the students to use the web more frequently. First, they can use internet access to look at school things like grades, assignments, and other information. Next, they can easily look up information pertaining to an assignment or in other words do research without needing a computer lab or library. Then, the world is based around technology so if they have an opportunity to use technology more often then they will adapt better to the future. Last, there was a question posted that was very true about what is being filtered and how protected the students are with an open Wi-Fi that anyone within range can use. Clearly the web can enhance a students learning but with the open Wi-Fi there is much that needs to be improved on.
