Education

Teachers being videoed. Students gaming and on social media. What about education?

The Problem

Smartphones are a fantastic safety measure and give parents peace of mind when kids are travelling to and from school. But when at school it’s difficult to check if they’re following smartphone policies. This causes anxiety and tensions between students and teachers. Even the best schools admit that it’s impossible to police smartphone policies or bans.
