How to use smartphones smartly

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. Research indicates that those who study in sight of their phone, even if they don't use it, do 20% worse. This workshop addresses these questions and teaches students how to manage their smartphone smartly.
