Discusses integrating computers logically and affordably into a school building's infrastructure through the use of wireless technology. Explains why wireless networks using mobile computers are preferable to desktop machines in each classroom, and explains the features of a wireless local area network (WLAN) and its common standards. An update is provided considering advances and concerns in seven key areas: bandwidth, interference, system design and layout, security, network administration, occupant health, and vandalism. The document addresses the impact of WLANs on learning and on the future of school design, and issues of costs and equitable access. (12 pages / 2002)
