With cell phones in the classroom, teachers can’t teach, and students can’t learn:
- Phones are a distraction, they lead to lower grades and reduced attention span
- Phones enable cheating
- Phones compromise emotional wellbeing
- Phones destroy social skills
School adapting “Away For The Day” policies report overwhelmingly positive results. Research shows that having phones physically off of the students is the best practice. If the phone is in their pocket or their bag, the temptation is too great. With the phone on their desk, forget about learning. Smartphone is designed to be addictive, and a child’s self control has no chance against the manipulation by the multi-billion dollar industry.
With the right policies in place, a classroom phone organizer can save the teacher from playing the role of “phone police” and let them concentrate on actual teaching.
Clear Pocket Classroom Phone Organizers
