Engagement on cellphone use in schools

In Alberta, and in many other places across the world, student cellphone use is increasing. Cell phones have the potential to be powerful teaching aids that, when used appropriately, can improve learning outcomes. However, there are also significant risks and concerns with inappropriate cellphone usage. They can be a distraction to students in the classroom, disrupt a student’s learning, and impact student safety through bullying or harassment.

Alberta Education wants to hear from teachers, parents, and other staff to help guide their decision-making on this topic. Please use the link below to participate in an online survey about the future of cellphone use in elementary, junior high, and senior high schools.

The survey is available here: Survey link.

Deadline: May 3, 2024
