A three-year study of students from 20 schools found that using mobiles had no effect on the educational results of a group of 12-year-olds.
I’m sure teens will welcome the news by continuing to text message in class!
The study also looked at video game use which showed mixed results:
while the researchers found a strong relationship between video games and lower results, gaming did not appear to affect skills in mathematics and actually had a positive relationship with visual-spatial skills.
Interesting news for all those involved with young people, but specifically those in school environments. How can this research be incorporated into lessons?
