Mobile Phones at School

If used effectively, mobile digital devices can be an effective tool for learning. However, an abundance of research has emerged in recent years which suggests that unmonitored mobile digital device use has a significant negative impact on students. Behaviour problems related to mobile digital device use, as well as a reduction in engagement with learning in the classroom, have prompted a reflection on school procedures. In light of this, South Grafton High School is updating our ‘Off and Away’ phone procedures, to ‘Off and Away All Day’.
