How much bandwidth is ‘enough’ for basic Internet use?

What is the minimum bandwidth that results in a ‘productive’ online experience?

In the elementary school I work, bandwidths are often .5 to .8 M as measured by speakeasy.net.

I realize it’s an open-ended question – but is it possible for kids to play online games, view YouTube videos, or use Google Docs productively at such speeds ?
