Managing your mobile phone

Avoid letting your students’ phones get in the way of their learning.

STUDENT WORKSHOPS ARE NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

We realise that the current Coronavirus crisis makes it very hard for schools to know what September will look like. Of course, we’re happy to visit your school and deliver this workshop in person if it is possible and safe to do so. However, all of our student workshops are available for online delivery.

Our online platform allows your students to access, complete and revisit this workshop at any time. Thanks to a mix of videos, resources and experiments, our online courses are as engaging, interactive and practical as the ones we’ve been delivering for 14 years.

Find out more about this workshop below, and get in touch if you would like to find out more about our online offer or discuss bookings.

Mobile phone management for students

Most students nowadays 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 will teach your students how to manage their smartphone smartly so that they can focus on their learning and success.
