How Smart is the Smartphone Review?
In an attempt to tackle cyberbullying, Education Minister Rob Stokes has called for a review on the use of smartphones in NSW schools. As a result there has been talk to ban mobiles from schools entirely, which has caused controversy and division amongst parents, teachers, and the wider community. With arguments for and against this move, we’ll wait with anticipation to see the recommendations from the review, and it’s potential impact on the current education system.
This morning on Breakfast, Dr Damian Maher, senior lecturer in Education, use of ICT and Social Media at UTS, joined Tess to chat about the upcoming review and why he’s against banning mobiles phones in schools.
