WiFi has been unanimously heralded a fantastic addition to our homes, our workplaces, and out schools. We are led to believe that this is a major advance in our lives, that we are lucky to have access to the elctronic world with such ease. Yet, around the world, an increasing number of governments and authorities have banned or warned against the use of WiFi in schools. Many experts, scientists and doctors are warning that a precautionary approach needs to be taken.
In this informative video, WiFi In Schools Australia examine the facts. Sadly, the picture with regards to standards in the UK is even more bleak, giving some schools and colleges the green light to put tablets and other wireless devices into the laps of unsuspecting children and wireless routers in every classroom.
If this message concerns you, there are organisations and activist groups who can help. They include the Safe Schools Information Technology Alliance, WiredChild and Parents Against WiFi In Schools, among others.
