The conservative goverment in Ontario is introducing the ban of smartphones in classrooms of public schools next semester (2019-2020). Althought from their perspective it might be the right thing to do improve learning in schools, from a student perspective this is not the right thing to do. Many students can concentrate better when they are listening to their music and often school devices are too sparse in which case it is practical for students to use their phones for research. This among other reasons such as the evolution towards a more connectd future is why banning smartphones in the classroom should be at the teachers discretion.
