This paper describes the wireless technologies issues when we wanted to design and implement a communication infrastructure within an organization in order to improve performance of learning and teaching and create new models for active learning. In this context we have outline a comparison between the wireless and wired Local Area Networks (LAN) in four aspects: scalability, reliability, performance and cost for emphasis of advantages and disadvantages between them. In addition, this paper addresses the wireless LAN security issues that must be considered before wireless devices can be used in education scenarios. The paper also describes the safety issues associated with the level of radiation in a wireless LAN environment and clarify the effects on people health, when they are using the wireless devices in general and particularly in education process. In order to the see the practical results of the wireless technologies applications in designing and implementation of a communication infrastructure within an organization I have used a case study done in a Stockholm high school and I have analyzed the solutions adopted and developed here including the benefits of designing and implementation of a wireless LAN in a education environment.
