Abstract

The claim that students’ use of mobile phones at school is connected with lower academic performance has consistently featured in the popular debate around school mobile phone bans and has been used to justify blanket prohibitions. In this blog, Marilyn Campbell and Amanda Third discuss the existing evidence and argue that, despite the claims, we actually don’t have sufficient data to back the policy.
