Perhaps not a student yourself, you may still have at least one family member or friend who just returned to the classroom as a student. Wilson Electronics believes that this year, our educators will continue to realize the educational benefits of having reliable technologies at their schools:

“Today, K-12 students are more digitally literate than any generation of students that has come before them. Thanks to the advent of mobile tech and apps, they can virtually step outside of the classroom walls and utilize a broader and more engaging range of resources and tools in the learning process.”

Cellular-connected devices have an incredible ability to enrich academic experiences by expanding opportunities for learning past the physical restraints of the classroom.


Examples of Mobile Technology-Based Activities for the Classroom

  • Create short 5-20 second videos to exercise creativity
  • Scan QR codes for quick and easy access to online materials
  • Research and learn how to evaluate source credibility 
  • Access an online dictionary or thesaurus
  • Use language applications to make constructive translations
  • Use social media feeds to communicate and collaborate on assignments
  • Listen to relevant podcasts

Mobile technology has drastically changed the way our children and teenagers communicate with one another. It is an integral part of how they learn.

There's only one problem. Despite everything mobile devices offer to students, many schools still don't have the infrastructure to support a reliable cellular connection. That's why K-12 schools should consider prioritizing connectivity this year and possibly using cellular repeater systems improve their in-building coverage.


WilsonPro Repeaters Make Schools Smarter and Safer

Trusted manufacturers like Wilson offer convenient cellular repeater solutions for schools to improve their coverage across multiple classrooms and buildings.

“Signal repeaters allow schools to improve cellular signal without the need for intensive infrastructure and the disruption it can cause. There is no need to tear into walls or ceilings to install fiber-optic cable.”

Improved coverage means more efficient communication, faster data transfers and easier interaction with digital tools.
