Commentary by Stephen Downes

The 'sky is falling' brigades are out in full force. In this item, parents with "a very cartoonish view of the world" are afraid wifi radiation will harm their children. "Then they go home and get exposed to another signal. It means their little bodies just can’t get rid of it basically." Whatever that means. Meanwhile, "school districts across the country are imposing strict new guidelines that ban private conversations between teachers and their students on cellphones and online platforms like Facebook and Twitter." No word on whether teachers can have private conversations in person with students.
