Connected to the Internet above the clouds

No doubt the school year has almost ended and the possibility of flying to a different destination is surely a possibility for all vacationers. If you are going to be in flight for more than thirty minutes, you may wonder how you will be able to answer your e-mails and post to your daily blog while in flight. “Gogo” may prove to be the answer to your concerns for this service allows you to stay connected and have access to the internet while in flight. This service does not work when not in flight. In order to make this service available is quite simple. The website for "Gogo" provides videos and other information about how to install and use this service using your smart phones or other handheld devices. In the classroom, this is one more example of how technology has helped to remove yet another barrier in communication.

This link provides information on how to create an account and even provides a pre flight checklist which includes remembering what needs to be done to ensure that your "Gogo" account is usable above the cloud. Also included within this website is a list of devices that may be used with the "Gogo "software. http://www.gogoinflight.com/jahia/Jahia/site/gogo/customerCare/beforeYouGo
