Designed to meet need for clear synthesis of school wireless or electromagnetic risks from tech use for person of regular/average education with emphasis on credible research such as from government--citations provided. Special slides reference increasing school academic and behavioral issues in relation to effects of wireless/electromagnetic frequencies on children. This is a product of independent investigative reporting by a former urban public school English teacher, and so concepts are uniquely synthesized in relation to schools and clearly described and cited. I had some kind help, and included a page thanking Dr. Paul Héroux of McGill University, Montreal, CA, for his suggested edits and his endorsement.
These are far too many slides for presentation, but slides can be selected for presentation or the total printed as a book.

This PP is most appropriate for staff, parents, and college students, not young children or questionably not teens because subject matter could be upsetting and frustrating as these students may have little recourse. Teens should comprehend, just teachers need to be prepared to respond to frustration or concerns.
Slides can be viewed in full and clearly understood through 71 with or without notes. Slides often include page-length notes, which can be printed in book format with binding on left. Color printing as a book may cost about $40 at Staples.
Slides can be programmed in order for presentation, reducing the number of slides exhibited. After slide 71 the slides are alternative versions of some previous slides to offer choice.
UPDATES: I continue to update this presentation. To access, keep your log in for TpT, then go to "My purchases" after logging in to TpT again. Select this PPT and download for newest version. This is also how you can provide ratings through TpT.

One of Dr. Paul Héroux comments, in evaluating the PPT, was that it does “a good job of surrounding the scope of the problem, which is the main concern.” That is the primary objective of the PP, to give a good understanding of the full scope of the electromagnetic problem, for many people have only a partial understanding. Educational problems are also discussed in relation to educational technology, not only electromagnetic exposures.
The PP provides pie and bar graphs, power level comparisons, images, APA-style citations, about 2 drawings, explanatory headings and notes on impacts upon learning, behavior, brain, reproduction, digital addiction, etc. Risks of low and medium frequencies also briefly covered, including light-bulb exposures.
The PP begins with a brief three slide review of frequencies and resonance. This can be read just on the slide, but notes provide much more information as throughout the PP. After that, the PP talks about DNA damage, then a few studies on cell towers and on the Moscow Embassy irradiation, to allow comparison of power levels and effects. Measurements used throughout are primarily V/m, microwatts cm-2, SAR, and milligauss, and if referenced electricity is usually mentioned as at 60 Hz.
There is a page showing what levels are today from some studies, some measurements, vs. at the Moscow Embassy, to show what people are being exposed to and might expect for health effects (at microwatts cm-2). A similar comparison follows later in relation to an animal cell tower study with comparison to exposures to smart meters and other exposures (V/m). Cell phone SAR is discussed alongside exposures effects in comparison to SAR levels allowed on cell phones.
Slides following the Moscow Embassy include statistics on increased cancer, cell phones tumors, reproductive risks, and studies related to these areas on wireless, including reference to studies showing higher absorption for kids or smaller people. Then there are about 2 slides on digital addiction and parallels with wireless exposure, then brain damage. Following this are slides studies showing poor education outcomes in relation to technology or the timelines of its use. Two timelines are included in the PP, one focused on wireless including electricity and radio, and the other a timeline for technology use in schools. Also mentioned in the PP are DNA and other physical effects, including a brief mention of potential mechanisms for biological effects. At end, discussion of legislation and other alternatives is included on about 3 slides.
