WIRELESS Computing in Schools: Reach Out and Touch the World.
Null, Linda; Teschner, Randy
Many elementary and secondary schools tie with local colleges and universities and use modems to access the computing power available at these higher education facilities. To help alleviate the financial burden of long-distance phone charges, work had begun to use the airways instead of phone lines for computer communication. An interest in shortwave radio and a concern for rural education led to the idea of using wireless radio to help impart knowledge to schools practically free of charge via the WIRELESS (Wireless Radio Experiment Linking Education Systems and Services) project developed at Northwest Missouri State University. This paper discusses the research and implementation of WIRELESS; hardware requirements; and applications of the WIRELESS environment. (Author/AEF)
