A rural school district on Alaska's Kodiak Island is using videoconferencing technology to help offer higher-level courses and instruction to its students, some of whom attend schools accessible only by air or boat. Other rural districts have adopted creative uses of technology as well, including an Arkansas district that outfitted school buses with WiFi to give students with long commutes to school access to university-provided science, technology, engineering and math content, and a Kansas district that saved a school from potential closure with a technology-based agriculture curriculum.
