Computers ‘do not improve’ pupil results, says OECD

In today’s current school environment, children are exposed to far more wireless radiation than adults.  Most schools employ Wi-Fi, use wireless devices as part of daily teaching, and a growing number have cell towers on campus or near campus.  Here’s a worst case scenario:  30 children in close quarters in a classroom, all downloading materials wirelessly from the internet at the same time, and each child has a smart phone “on” in their backpack, with a cell tower radiating into the classroom.  This happens every day in school.  Health considerations aside all this wireless exposure does not even improve student performance. 

The report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development examines the impact of school technology on international test results, such as the Pisa tests taken in more than 70 countries and tests measuring digital skills. Among the seven countries with the highest level of internet use in school, it found three experienced “significant declines” in reading performance – Australia, New Zealand and Sweden – and three more had results that had “stagnated” – Spain, Norway and Denmark. The countries and cities with the lowest use of the internet in school – South Korea, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Japan – are among the top performers in international tests. The study shows “there is no single country in which the internet is used frequently at school by a majority of students and where students’ performance improved”.
