Multan schools ban mobile phones in classrooms -Education authority

Ghulam Shabbir Saaki, a teacher, said that the teaching community will follow the orders. “We will follow the guidelines given to us,” he remarked. Saaki works as an elementary teacher at Government High School Daulat Gate, Multan.

Teachers will no longer be able to use mobile phones in Multan schools. The District Education Authority issued a notification on Tuesday. The authority took the step after parents complained.
Chief Executive Officer Mukhtar Hussain said that parents said that teachers were not focusing on teaching students, and would either talk or play games on their mobile phones .
The teachers have been told to deposit their phones with the headmaster during school timings. In an emergency, they will contact their families on the school’s landline.
“The use of cell phones affect a student’s learning,” said Hussain. Action will be taken against those who fail to comply, he added.

We consider the pros and cons.Many have seen the debate framed by France’s decision to ban mobile phones in schools from September this year. The fact is schools here are unlikely to respond well to an edict from on high, nor does the question have to be about mobile phones, but specifically smartphones. There is a pretty persuasive argument for urging all schools to go smartphone-free. I have never argued the internet is a bad thing, it’s a fabulous resource for children but the fact is that it wasn’t designed with them in mind, and overuse or misuse of it does present some clear problems for children.
Do I want to ban smartphones for children? Absolutely not. This is not about banning, but about reducing the amount of time given to it, especially when they are in school. Can they learn about digital citizenship and emotional resilience in school? Absolutely. That doesn’t require a smartphone in every hand. Many schools are already doing this as they see the benefits and have simply created their own policy that delivers the same effect. I think heads can be persuaded that such policies would fit and benefit all schools.
