How schools are using kids' phones to track and surveil them
« on: February 25, 2020, 07:45:58 PM »
Teachers often lament that phones can be a distraction in classrooms. Some governments have even banned phones outright in schools. But a few school administrations see phones in schools as a benefit because they can help keep track of students more efficiently.

At least 10 schools across the US have installed radio frequency scanners, which pick up on the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals from students' phones and track them with accuracy down to about one meter (just over three feet), said Nadir Ali, CEO of indoor data tracking company Inpixon.
