WIFI in schools in my country – 2018

Hello, I am a mother of three children, who study in basic-schools (ages 7-12). I live in a city in the center of Israel, very close to Tel-Aviv. In their schools, there are many WIFI transmitters, working 24/7 for 10 years already. It is happening all over our city as well as in almost all schools in all other cities around Israel, and mostly in the last 5 years .

The Ministry of Education is the one that pushes all cities and schools to join the project of “New Pedagogy in the 21st century”.

This pedagogy is explained in the ministry of Education’s documents as the “BYOD Project” based on pedagogical researches as the:

“Binkley M., Erstad O., Herman J., Raizen S., Ripley M., and Rumble M. (2010) Draft White Paper 1. Defining 21st century skills. ATCS (Assesment & Teaching of 21st Century Skills), University of Malbourne. CISCO, INTEL and MICROSOFT.

The new decision of the ministry of education (from 2018) is to turn cell phones to basic means of learning for children in school, based on WIFI comunication fields. Not only Tablets or Laptops.

Now our cities are falling also to the “Smart City” project, fulling the streets with LED lamps with WIFI transmitters in all the residence streets, close to schools and kindergardens of small toddlers .

I hope people will understand what is happening here, and around the world, that some industries are using the disunderstanding of most people (that are not scientists) about the health dangers of wireless radiation. 


“School offcials and global assessment organizations such as the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) will be able to use these methods of assessment to evaluate how well schools are teaching 21st-century skills. “



21st Century Learning

April 28, 2008

“Cisco’s vision is to help transform education so that it is relevant to the needs of 21st century learners, educators, and organizations. This will require a shift in the way teachers teach, leaders lead, and students learn. Technology will play a critical role in the development of engaging curricula and meaningful assessments to equip learners with 21st century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration. The end goal is the systemic improvement of both the quality and accessibility of education throughout the world.”
