Have to agree with Greg on the cell phone problem and emergencies.

This is the most recent article on this http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/null/151779 with the company in Tokyo.

There was a company in Virginia, EM-SEC that was doing this back in 2007.


The site copyright lists 2008, but I have no idea if they are current.

I'm not making this up - there is a company producing paint designed to do that very thing.  I have no knowledge as to whether or not it is a successful product.

I know the Teknoids Community has talked about the concept of restricting wireless in the classrooms many times in the past.
I'm compiling research to give to our Faculty Technology Committee.
My question is has anybody successfully implemented a solution that restricts access to wireless internet in classrooms?
Also if you have tried and were not successful in restricting wireless access in classrooms let me know. Why didn't the solution work.
No opinions please about how students can just go buy a mobile broadband card from a cellular carrier, or installing microwaves in the classrooms, or that teaching techniques should improve.
