Believe in Better

Most students now have a smartphone. They are an important part of how we all communicate and find out information, but they are also inherently dangerous to a student’s ability to do well at school.

Smartphone usage can be addictive, cause concentration issues and create excessive stress. They can also result in poor sleep patterns. Learning and poor grade results have all been shown to be closely correlated with sleep deprivation in students. Research even indicates that those who study in sight of their phone, even if they don’t use it, do 20% worse.

This is a critical problem that needs to be addressed in schools. But what can we and our students do to combat the downsides of these vital devices? This workshop addresses these questions and teaches students how to manage their smartphones smartly.
