DSTAR 12327 started this petition to WA Government and

Due to a highly controversial statewide decision in October 2019, phones, smart watches, earphones and several other electronic items are being banned from public schools all over WA. This unfortunate news means that these devices can't be used anytime during the school day by teens, including well-earned breaktimes. I strongly believe that this restrictive ban should be reconsidered and removed by the WA Government ASAP because of some of the reasons and beneficial device purposes stated in this petition description, including the following:

ICT Skills/Learning Improvements

Various Possible Educational Activities: E.g. Creation Of More Engaging Learning Environments Using Easily Available Online Tools 

Communication With Friends & Family 

Photography & Videography

Deserved Entertainment: Beneficial Gaming & Videos 

Helping Young People Prepare For The Real Technological World

Discovery & Exploration Of New Things: E.g. Learning Educational Content

Extremely Useful Accessibility: E.g. Convenience Of Carrying Devices In Pockets

Teaching Core Values & Skills: E.g. Responsibility, Socialisation & Safety Promotion 

Life Personalisation: E.g. Using Online Planners 

Etc. 

I hope this extraordinary reasoning persuades numerous individuals to sign this petition to remove this constrictive WA public school phone/device ban!

Thankyou all for your essential support.

Sincerely, 

DSTAR12327
