Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 12Sep 16,Facebook debate: Smartphones in the classroomBound to be distracted

Mobile phones will certainly distract students in school. Even though access to useful information has its benefits, the fact is that the temptation of spending more time with mobile phones is inevitable. In my opinion, until a child reaches a certain age, he/she shouldn’t own a phone. No doubt, smartphones are very useful in today’s age, for communicating and other important aspects, but schoolchildren should only be allowed to have them after a certain age.
