Student Experiences: Innovative Solution to New Age Problem

As an aspiring educator enrolled in the Queen’s B.Ed. program I have been inside a wide variety of high school classrooms, teaching and observing almost every stream of mathematics education from grade 9 applied to grade 12 academic. Though the students in each classroom come from extraordinarily different backgrounds with unique learning goals and needs, I found that one issue they face remains consistent across the board. The prevalence of cell phone use in schools all over Ontario could be seen as a growing concern that needs addressing and as a member of the Tech Ed concentration at Queen's this issue has been at the forefront of my studies.
