Study Bus?

When I ride the Red Arrow coach down to Calgary, I love the fact that there is wireless on-board. Now, a new initiative in Arizona is letting students study during their commute:

Wi-Fi Turns Rowdy Bus Into Rolling Study Hall

It's a nice change to see pictures of students quietly studying on their laptops -- many of the usual iPod/smartphone shots focus on excessive student multitasking (and I'm not saying they're always wrong...). It's refreshing to instead focus on the quiet study time that devices like laptops can foster.
