The lack of standardisation makes it difficult for educational administrators to determine whether or not they will allow mobile technologies into their schools and how they will allow these products to be used. Western research reports have traditionally, over the past ten years, indicated that there is no conclusive link between mast radiation and mobile radiation, and yet countries throughout Europe are taking significant measures to ensure the safety of children and adults These individuals has gone so far as to write policies, turn down major benefactors son.
