Secondary schools are introducing strict new bans on mobile phones

Post by Guest on Sun Jun 24, 2018 10:24 pm

Secondary schools are introducing strict new bans on mobile phones where all pupils aged up to 16 have to lock them away for the entire day after evidence that it makes children more sociable, alert and active.

From September pupils aged 11 to 16 who own phones at the schools will be required either to hand them in or put them in their lockers when they arrive for registration and only get them back when they leave in the afternoon.

The sea-change in approach coincides with an appeal last week by culture secretary Matthew Hancock in The Daily Telegraph for schools to ban smart phones during the school day. It comes as this newspaper campaigns for a legal duty of care to protect children from digital harms.

Typical is Latymer school in north London where its ban on phones is to be extended to all children up to the end of their GCSE years after its success in restricting access to younger pupils.

The independent school said its ban on mobile phones for pupils aged 11 to 13 had been “incredibly positive” with an increase in children playing outside, attending clubs and societies and socialising with each other.

From September all pupils from 11 to 16 will have to switch off their phones and put them in their lockers from 8.25am to 4pm with parents told they should ring the school if they need to contact their sons or daughters.

When You Wish on a hill shepherd star
Your students will not get very far,
Because the world will not slow down
just because the dumb hill shepherds come to town.

Stop them using paper too, the Job of the education system is to Teach them how it was back in the bad old days not to prepare them fro the real world of mobile phones and paper

Why do hillshepherds think they can Defy Technology ?
why can't you learn for When people lie you cried about Paper, about Ink, about literally every advancement.. the World IS better off moving forward, the Sooner your ways are left in the dust the better because it is the faster we have evolved.

like the damned EU, "we'll Ban Memes"
Smartphone with it's human host just goes




It Doesn't, matter if you like them or they are good, because they ARE!!!!
there is no putting genies back in the bottle
the sooner Hillshepherds learned to accept that the better
bashing your head against the wall (what you're doing or making your kids do) will not in anyway slow the perpetual march of Technology at this point.

Adapt Evolve Survive

In fairness, Veya, the transition from slate to paper didn't quite involve the significant issue of easy distractions you get from paper to smartphones Wink

Smartphones are a lot of other things than just being phones... and none of these things were allowed to be brought into school before...

Because the Idea that you could access the vast resources available on the internet from a handheld device in your pocket was LITERALLY Science fiction. Cool

the kids today Don't need to be taught about the world you lived in, they need to be taught how to live in the World that exists now and over their life, one that was literally Sci fi when you were a kid.


@les
the reality of that distraction will ALWAYS be there, what ever they are taught to do they need to be able to do despite the distraction that will as they grow and take there place in the world become an integral part of 'the human experience'.
Did we decide to discard paper and return to the slate and chalk?
why would they choose to go backwards?

No you twat...!


They can play around with their toys as much as they want outside school... but during school time, they are there to learn the fundamentals of core subjects, and to learn how to THINK, as well as to INTERACT with each other on a human social level...!!!


Having a smartphone and knowing how to 'click up an answer', does not equal intelligence... nor does it give any real knowledge & understanding to anyone either...


But these devices are not even being used for educational purposes during school time anyway... they are an interference on education... a distraction from class/subject learning... an obstruction to human social interaction...!

You mean Via social media? they are? that's why they need the phones
ohh you meant in that old obsolete way YOU used to Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Knowing how to click on an answer (or look it up in library with the old fashioned reference cards and books) is all 95% of humans know how to do Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I'll tell you what skill I have never used again 'old fashioned reference cards' Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

You're right they are not being used and that is a HUGE failing of the Education system right there. it is Failing to prepare students for the REAL world in which they will always have these smartphones, the solution they WILL use in real life Will involve smartphones (or even more advanced tech) So Why is the education system Failing to teach them the solution they WILL actually use!!!

YOU do not know how to INTERACT with each other on a human social level.

and you neither think nor understand the fundamentals so clearly that was massive waste of time for the teachers. Wink

Hmmm, I don't think that having your nose stuck in a phone for hours is interacting with other humans really. The point is that having a phone in school is a distraction, especially in a classroom, and it's also disrespectful. It's nothing to do with depriving kids of technology or "going backwards".

they need to learn how to Critically Assess the information they look up so they are not so easily fooled by misinformation
they need to learn How the maths they can process on their phone can be used to Solve problems and Assess other information
they need to Experience Scientific Methodology and Experimentation.
they don't need to copy things off a board and write it in a notebook to be never looked at again.
they don't need to waste time on Shakespeare or Old fashioned Language/Grammar.
they don't need to waste hour upon hours learning Very little by rote (as previous generations did)


But you are Right they don't really need to go to a School they could learn it all online..
the reality is that Physical Schools mainly exist for the baby sitting today Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

yes it does Cool

You think Modern communication is not interacting with humans and think it should go backwards
You think a smartphone is novelty or mere distraction rather than being the NEW way to do things. You still running on the premise that they will ever need to go Backwards to the skill you used to use (because of lack of smartphone)
You think it's disrespectful to be connected to the modern world, it is disrespectful of the teacher to expect students to be disconnected. soon implants will make this whole Idea of 'disconnecting' obsolete, what is the Backward Primitive Monkey Principal going to do then? Tell them to Remove the Chip from their Arm or Skull Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes


the education system is not suitable for the reality of life in the early 2000's, let alone life in 2050 that kids starting school in 2018 will need Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

The mere presence of your smartphone can reduce cognitive capacity, study finds.

Cognitive capacity and overall brain power are significantly reduced when your smartphone is within glancing distance—even if it’s turned off and face down—according to a recent study. This new report from the University of Texas at Austin, “Brain Drain: The Mere Presence of One’s Own Smartphone Reduces Available Cognitive Capacity,” was published in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research.

During this study, the UT Austin researchers found that someone’s ability to hold and process data significantly improved if his or her smartphone was in another room while taking a test to gauge attentional control and cognitive processes. Participants who kept their phones in a pocket or bag also outperformed those who kept their phones on the desk while taking the same test. Again, even if the phone was turned off and face down on the desk, the mere sight of one's own smartphone seemed to induce “brain drain” by depleting finite cognitive resources.

A decade ago, smart devices promised to change the way we think and interact, and they have – but not by making us smarter. Eric Andrew-Gee explores the growing body of scientific evidence that digital distraction is damaging our minds

Imagine that after a routine medical exam your doctor delivers some devastating news: Since your last checkup, your cognitive performance has plummeted. Your ability to connect with others has eroded. And your memory for everyday events is no longer operating as it once did.
As it turns out, there is a cure and it won't cost you a penny. The treatment is simple: All that's required is that you put away your smartphone.

Few of us will have this conversation with our doctors. But perhaps we should. Over the last few years, scientists have begun studying the way cell phones affect the human experience. And the early results are alarming.

Consider the findings of a study in this month's issue of Social Psychology, examining how the "mere presence" of a cell phone—even when it is not being used—influences people's performance on complex mental tasks. Within the study, participants were asked to quickly scan a row of digits and cross out consecutive numbers that add to a pre-specified total (for example, any two numbers that total 3). Before they started, half of participants were asked to put away their phones. The other half were asked to place their phones on their desk, ostensibly so they could answer a few survey questions about its features.

Not a single cell phone went off during the experiment. Yet compared to those whose phones were stowed out of view, participants whose phones sat on their desk performed nearly 20% worse.

they aren't meant to make us smarter
we make them smarter
then we can be obsolete

Like a 'freethinker' that can only copy and paste ideas from the internet, the Human/smartphone Symbionts are just a more efficient version of whatever didge is. Cool

A fine example of someone who is addicted to their i-phone

Its nothing more than a material object, thus making also that person materialistic.

Hence the Technocrat, wants people to be controlled by machines, this is the first step and is happenning with i-phones. Luckily there is people to help spell out these problems and help fix them.

You're just upset cause the New Symbionts are superior to you Razz Razz Razz

I don't own an IPhone(or Samsung) and I'm not on Facebook. Also Why would a Smartphone be addictive to me? I have hacked my Smartphone and made Smartphones apps for Shits and giggles.

'they' are not fixing it, 'they' can't fix it, because there is nothing broken. things are progressing as destiny intends. Hill shepherds can try and pull the Brakes as much as they want, but the progress train doesn't stop. (stand in front of it if you want Rolling Eyes )
AND who are 'they'? the monkey Principal? Cause No one is opposing the technocrats cause no one knows how, they throw money at us to make shit that may as well be magic to plebs like you.

Like I said what's the 'Monkey Principal' gonna do when Implants become the Normal(which they will)?

Well its a known fact that they are superior to all humans

Not worried about thatr, as who would be?

That is not the issue and they are a good source of technology and information

That is not the issue that is being stated is it

The reality is addiction here and how it is dumbing down people

I suggest you watch the videos
