The Education Department of the Delhi government has restricted the use of mobile phones in the classroom of all government and private schools.

The advisory issued by the Education Department on Thursday has asked the parents to ensure their children do not carry mobile phones to school. It also urged teachers and staff members not to use mobile phones in the school premises, especially where students are involved in learning activities.  

According to the advisory, it pointed out the reason for banning the use of mobile phones in Delhi schools. The advisory highlights the prevalence of mobile phones in daily life and urges reflection on the potential negative consequences of overuse, including depression, anxiety, social isolation, hyperactivity, hypertension, sleep loss, and poor eyesight.

The advisory noted that bullying, harassment, and transmission of explicit images, as well as recording or uploading inappropriate content, can harm a child’s social fabric and future. Additionally, distractions caused by technology can negatively impact academic performance, life satisfaction, face-to-face conversation quality, and connection.

Therefore, the use of mobile phones definitely needs to be regulated in school premises and therefore all stakeholders connected with school education such as students, parents, teachers, and the heads of schools need to arrive at a consensus on the minimum use of mobile phones in their school so that a more meaningful learning atmosphere can be maintained in the classroom which makes for a better ambience and school environment for the students, the advisory said.

It is also mentioned that parents should ensure their children don’t have mobile phones with them while on school grounds. If students bring mobile phones to school, the school administration must arrange for safe and appropriate storage using lockers, other systems, etc.

Mobile phones should strictly not be allowed in the classrooms. Further, teachers and other staff are restrained from using mobiles during teaching-learning activities, especially in classrooms, playgrounds, laboratories and library, etc.
