This resource addresses the misuse of smartphones and other mobile technology in a range of contexts in and out of the school environment. While mobile devices clearly have significant educational uses and benefits, they are also frequently misused.

These question-based discussion cards encourage students to think about and reflect on both the appropriate use and misuse of mobile technology. In addition, using the cards provides an opportunity to establish a considered and agreed set of ground rules to ensure appropriate behaviour is adopted in a consensual way.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Texting in lessons
  • Social chat rooms
  • Homophobic bullying
  • Riot
  • Texting in company
  • Sexting
  • Playing computer games at home
  • Talking face to face
  • Misuse of social networking sites
  • Agreeing school rules on use of mobile phones etc
  • Banning electronic devices at home
  • A supermarket checkout situation
  • Taking pictures in and out of school then posting them on social media
  • Celebrities and social media.
