The issue of smartphones in schools is increasingly coming to a head. Politicians, education professionals and researchers have all weighed in in recent times with their views over whether smartphones should be banned in schools. At PTE, we support the individual agency of schools to choose their own policy on this. However, we are also aware of research and evidence showing that smartphones tend to be a disruptive influence in the classroom.
However, what we really want is for you to give us your opinion. We’ve made a short survey below, which should only take 2 minutes to complete. All of your responses will be private, and any public use of statistics from the survey will anonymize the responses.
