The Effect of Mobile Phones on Learning

Smartphones have transformed the Australian classroom and not always for the better. Research shows that the presence of smartphones has a negative impact on memory, learning and recall in schools. In fact, the effect is so significant that the simple presence of a phone in a student’s pocket is enough to cause students to take fewer notes and have overall poorer academic performance compared to students who did not have access to their phones. *https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7425970/


Legislation banning phones in the classroom is aimed at solving this problem, however it introduces a new issue: how do schools effectively manage student phones? It is unlikely that outright banning phones from coming to school is optimal, as parents want a point of contact with their children on their way to and from school. Also students become ingenious in how they conceal their phones in the face of outright bans.


Tackling this issue head on, there are schools using storage tubs or phone bags that are kept by faculty. These systems do the job but put the burden of phone collection and distribution on to teachers each day.


On the other hand, there are schools installing dedicated phone storage lockers to ensure that students’ expensive smartphones are safe and protected, and that no blame can be assigned to the school if their phone becomes lost or damaged.
