WiFi in Schools Australia is an online resource providing independent information to parents. The WiFi in Schools Australia website is maintained by an informal group of parents who have researched the scientific literature on the biological effects of EMR and also the background to the ongoing debate. Parents volunteer their time and donate their skills to help raise awareness on the implications of schools using wireless technology. Some parents involved include those in the IT industry, Environmental Sciences, Child Rights, Education and Journalism. WiFi in Schools Australia is not a registered organisation and has no commercial interest in making this information available.
The WiFi in Schools Australia website has been online since December 2012. The animation "WiFi in Schools - The Facts" was published on 11 December 2012. The video "Safe & Smart 4 r Kids - reduce wireless radiation" was published on 17 August 2013.
WiFi in Schools Australia hopes to provide a starting point for Australian parents, caregivers, students, teachers and the wider community to become informed about the potential health effects from long-term use of wireless technologies. We urge immediate precautionary measures until long-term exposure has been proven to be harmless - as recommended by the Council of Europe and other responsible authorities.
WiFi in Schools Australia fully supports the use of technology, computers and the internet for education in schools. We also believe that schools have a duty of care and need to provide a safe learning environment for all children. We believe that schools should not expose our children unnecessarily to the long-term health risks from the use of wireless technologies. In order to minimise exposure to wireless radiation, we favour wired communications as a safer option until there is conclusive evidence that there are no harmful effects from long-term use.
