Encouraging Mindful Use of Cell Phones

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cell phones can be both a distraction and a tool in the classroom. As a distraction, phones can cause students to disengage with their learning and each other. Policies on phones vary, simply banning them does not teach students how to manage their own usage. A classroom social experiment was conducted focused awareness and mindfulness of student phone usage. This session will cover the factors leading to the experiment, activities used, and reflections from students and the teacher.
