  • No wireless networks in preschools, kindergartens and schools.
  • A hard-wired direct cable connection is recommended to each classroom for the teacher to use during lessons.
  • Prefer wired telephones for personnel in preschools, kindergartens and schools.
  • Prefer cabled connection to Internet and printers in schools and turn off Wi-Fi settings in all equipment.
  • Prefer laptops and tablets that can be connected by cable to Internet.
  • Students should not be allowed to use cell phones in schools. They can either leave them at home or the teacher collects them in turned off mode before first lesson in the morning.
