Is a coffee shop or cafe your ideal of a productive environment to work on line; or maybe surrounded by a pool of laptop users in the public library system? We all know they are spending time on line and not socializing. What’s wrong with this picture? Could it be a pressing need to have their own Internet connection or wireless broadband connection at home? Cost is no longer an excuse to not have a convenient connection at home.
Glance down your timely consistent “to do list” and you will quickly realize there are many of these errands that can be done on line without the time consuming local road trip. Paying bills used to constitute post office, bank, department and business office stops. However, these tasks can be done in a matter of minutes at home from your computer safely and cheaper, if you have a secure Internet connection.
There is no hunting for a stamp or rifling through the mail to find the bill that you are in need of. Most places have websites that are up to date on payments and amounts that you owe them. You can see what you paid last month and when your next payment is due. If you have the money in your account you can go ahead and pay it and then there is no need to wait until the check clears. It is all done quickly.
Parents with kids still in school have the ultimate school to home follow up tool. Having access to the Internet gives them access to their school and teacher/class website along with email communication to make sure parents are kept informed about the progress of their kids, with the added bonus of periodic grade postings. There is no longer any reason for a parent to be surprised by report card grades or the semester results.
You will find other amazing uses for the computer in the classroom as well as in your home. Homework assignments that require research books are easier on line. Schools that use Smart Music in their music classes are really cutting edge teaching tools. Using Smart Music a student can record themselves playing any composition assignment and email it to the teacher for grading. This can only be done by being on line.
Decent wireless internet makes so many things reachable online. There are some excellent and affordable wireless internet plans that are available.
