The use of digital devices in the classroom can have various benefits for students. However, when used at inopportune times or in inappropriate ways, devices may be counterproductive to learning. As digital devices are now an integral part of life, it is critical that students develop the skills needed to responsibly manage the use of these tools. This policy highlights how schools can harness the potential learning benefits of digital devices in the classroom, while also supporting students to responsibly self-regulate their usage.
