Perceptions of University students on electromagnetic pollution of information and communications technology equipment (Master thesis)

Γαβρίλας, Λεωνίδας

Computers, cell phones and wireless networks are some of the usual sources of electromagnetic radiation in everyday life for the modern society, and integral parts of Information and Communication Technologies which have been included in various ways in the educational process of all levels. The increasing use of wireless networks has caused many concerns about their impact on human health. Worldwide research studies have documented numerous biological effects in various biological systems. Electromagnetic radiation has become a pollutant, which often is not mentioned and recognized among other types of soil. This thesis initially lists the basic theoretical elements of electromagnetic radiation, then presents some of its sources and some biological effects. It then describes the use of ICT in the educational process and presents, from elementary to high school, the highlights of curricula related to the issue of electromagnetic radiation and pollution. Finally, it assesses some basic students’ knowledge on the subject of electromagnetic radiation and pollution, attitudes and beliefs around these, combined with ICT, behavior and potential symptoms discovered during their use, and investigates the factors to which they are related. A main conclusion was that factors such as gender, the department they study, and also the fields of study the students were interested in in high school, are significantly associated to the knowledge, attitude and behavior towards the issue of electromagnetic radiation and pollution.
