Ban mobile phones in school?

Every school that I’m familiar with see phones in schools as a problem, many see the opportunities as well but the problems remain.  Most schools have an ‘out of site out of mind’ approach but few are actively using them in lessons.

I think that a sensible way forward would be for the leadership to start to work with pupils to slowly increment their use in lessons and try to explore the issues and advantages.

ANYWAY – the debate rages on and Michael Gove is providing some leadership on the issue.  Have a look at Ewan McIntosh’s article on the topic.  Incidentally Ewan is Keynote at the UWE Conference this year.
