The Scottish Conservatives want to ban students from using mobile phones in class. What do you think? bit.lyTechTories

@TESScotland

I think it shows schools struggle to know how to use technology in class. More access not less!

@jenelsan

In my experience most teachers can't get through a simple presentation using a laptop. More teaching, less tech.

@ClareMcDonald4

I don't normally allow them in my classroom but they can be useful.

Kids' mobiles can be great for #BYOD (bring your own device) testing of apps and also for getting around restrictive school web filters.

@skipperAitken

What a waste. I use my translator on my phone all the time. Use the resources we have.

@MrsKirstBarrett

Tories say students must "learn to use technology responsibly" and this is achieved by banning mobiles!?

@prettysimple

We shouldn't fear new technology and its effect on children. We should embrace it, promoting positive use.
