  • Internet will help in education

    The internet is a valuable tool students can use. Weather it is for research on projects, Looking up pictures to make models, Watching educational videos, Contacting their teacher, Through school email, Because they forgot to pick up the homework in class. The pros of having the internet in schools greatly outweighs the cons. In addition students who may be unfamiliar with the internet will eventually need to learn this skill in order to be useful in the workforce. Offering students a life skill they will need later in life and letting them learn new information is not a bad think. However some may argue that exposing students to the internet may be unnecessary, Because they can use book, And "poison" their minds. The truth is students can find information much quicker on the on the internet than they can in books. Also these students are going to be exposed to the internet and it is better to educate them in the proper ways to use it in school than instead of them being confused later in life when they may encounter it. Students will need to know in life how to use the internet and avoid scams or viruses. Some may also say that children will exploit the bad side of the internet. This is untrue because students will be taught what to do and what to not do and will do and will be disciplined for not following the rules

  • JEsus yesing christ

    Students around the US have said within recent years that technology has been developing more and more, and with that so do filters, whitelists and firewall restrictions. The Black & White student run online news for Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland has said “As we are all painfully aware, MCPS” (short for Male Chauvinist Pigs) “has adopted this philosophy in a valiant effort to block students’ horrific tendencies to watch graphic videos and haphazardly add numerous items of clothing into their online carts.” For example: one student, deciding to stay unanimous, said at home he found a very informational video that he wanted to Share with the rest of the class to help the students understand his presentation he was doing for a project. When he got to school he did the presentation he started all going well and then he got to the video, he opened it expecting it to open like normally, the whitelist had other plans as he opened the video and a huge stop sign glared him down from the smart board here he expected to see the video humiliating him in front of his whole class and virtually helpless. The lack of the video decreased his final grade on the project. Proving that we need to take all restrictions right? Wrong, let’s explain...

    There is a problem if we get rid of every blocking system. If we do remove all restrictions there will be those few kids out there who will take chromebooks and just do whatever they want on them from playing games to looking at facebook. Then, there’s the fact that the restrictions aren’t stopping them on computers. Students have found a way around the whitelist, it’s to use data on their cellular devices. Although it costs more than using the school wifi students are desperate. There is also another way students found a way around the
    Hacking, the cursed art, some students have practiced this art, getting them expelled if caught none have been caught but students claim to have done it to friends on social media never being caught. There are three different types of hackers, white hat hacking, grey hat hacking, and black hat hacking. A black hat hacker is a hacker who "violates computer security for little reason beyond maliciousness or for personal gain" black hat hackers break into secure networks to destroy, modify, or steal data, or to make the networks unusable for authorized network users. Grey hat hackers are hackers or computer security experts who may sometimes violate laws or typical ethical standards, but does not have the malicious intent typical of a black hat hacker, these are one of the most common types of hackers. According to technopedia White hat hackers are: a computer security specialist who breaks into protected systems and networks to test and asses their security. White hat hackers use their skills to improve security by exposing vulnerabilities before malicious hackers can detect and exploit them.

  • Limited Wifi, Yes

    I am a teacher at a middle school, and most kids I teach have mobile devices. I do need them to use it some days for educational apps such as Khan Academy, and not all kids have data plans. Besides, in their free times such as lunch, they like to check social media and whatever kids like these days. However, we might need to limit the use of wifi in some classrooms, like during tests.

  • Students in schools need internet because

    Its only logical that some students don't have the internet that other students may have. Projects that might be due at school on a certain day might need internet to do research on that certain subject, but there can also be some negative impacts on inappropriate ads or sites like wiki for example.

  • Wi-Fi in schools? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

    Wi-Fi in schools? Absolutely not. This is a matter of student health and the health of their offspring. Refer to Dr. George Carlo and especially listen carefully to MICROWAVE WEAPONS expert Barrie Trower. Wi-Fi is not a requirement to have strong communication. Did the founders of America use Wi-Fi to help them in their fight against British rule in the 1700s?

  • More than a dozen scientists and pediatric neurology experts from Harvard to the California Brain Tumor Association wrote letters, urging school systems switch to wired.

    More than a dozen scientists and pediatric neurology experts from Harvard to the California Brain Tumor Association have written letters to MCPS, joining the parent organization in urging the school system switch to wired technology. Some scientists said radiofrequency waves don't cause cancer. But more and more experts in the field are coming forward expressing concern.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics along with the Government Accountability Office are urging the FCC to adopt up-to-date radiation standards. The current standards are 20 years old and don't account for a child's use.

  • Wifi is CANCER causing

    Everyday exposure to wifi is unhealthy just like the GMO lunches most children are being fed at schools today. Instead of wifi though there should be hard wired internet (Ethernet cables) for use at times when needed.
    Like mentioned above please do your own research. The information and studies are out there. The government and cell phone company's do not care about our health.

  • Yes and no

    I am fine with the schools having Wi-Fi but the only way the kids should get to use it is on the schools computer or tablets. Kids should not get it for use when ever they want to. I just came from talking to my kids high school teachers and they all had the same thing to say, well if I could just keep the kids off there phone. Well they are playing games and checkng FB Snapchat and so on, so the kids should not get it on there phones. Heck my husband even had to change the Wi-Fi pass word at work because his younger employees would watch movies at work and be on FB a lot. It is sad wen you are so addicts to being on line that you get fired from work for it. And letting the kids be on line at school only feeds to this problem.

  • Wifi is cancer causing.

    Children are more at risk than adults. There shouldn't be wifi exposure at school everyday. Parents please do your own research and see for yourself... We cannot expect the government and wireless company's to tell us the real danger of exposure. Just because mostly everyone else is using it doesn't mean it's safe...

  • It is too distracting

    Everyone in my class is so loud now and they keep air dropping bad pictures to each other, my gross face is on every iPad now kms. Now it says i need to add words what is life, get the WiFi out boo boooooo it sucks, theres Ethernet ok ok

  • A Unnecessary Ditraction

    It is a guarantee that students will not use the Wi-Fi for only academic purposes and allowing everyone access to it makes it incredibly slow. Most schools already have internet connected computers for student use easily available and some schools have laptops that are available for student use as well. If student Wi-Fi was to be implemented in a school it should be for students who have shown academic incentive (improved grades, completion of assignments, high grades, in class effort, etc.)

    I am a student at a high school in central New York.
