Abstract:Becoming a green iSchool requires information infrastructure development. Wireless information systems are important for information infrastructure development. This paper assesses how wireless information systems can support creating green iSchools. Wireless information systems can be built from wireless networks such as Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWANs), and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Wireless networks can reduce the fossil fuel combustion from transportation while using fewer infrastructures than wired networks. A WSN can otherwise help increase energy efficiency for school buildings. With low cost energy efficient sensor nodes placing at multiple locations, data gathering can be more effective. And this in turn helps energy use in a school building be more efficient.
