TASSO 2019 Survey - Do Student's Mobile Devices, including phones, belong in Schools & Colleges?

The Tasmanian Association of State School Organisations (TASSO) regularly provide feedback to the Minister for Education and the Department of Education.

A current topic generating a lot of interest is the use of mobile phones and devices by students in schools. We need your thoughts about whether there is:
an educational benefit for students having access to their devices during school hours;
enough digital devices available in schools and colleges for student use;
a need for digital devices in schools and colleges;
what classes/subjects do students require access to digital devices; and
>  other reasons why students take their own mobile device to school.

So that we can better represent the families and students in Tasmanian Government Schools, we would appreciate you completing this survey and ask that you share it amongst others in your school community, including staff and students.

TASSO thanks you for your time in completing and sharing this survey so that we can better represent you. If you have any further questions or comments please email info@tasso.org.au with the subject line Mobile Devices.
