A major United Nations report by Unesco has recommended banning Smartphones from schools to reduce classroom disruption and protect children from online bullying. The report highlights that excessive mobile phone use is linked to poor educational performance and negatively affects children's emotional stability. It emphasizes that digital technology, including artificial intelligence, should not replace face-to-face teaching or prioritize individualization over the social dimension of education. Several European countries, including Finland, Italy, and France, have already implemented restrictions on smartphones in schools. In the UK, the Schools Minister supports schools that ban smartphones from their premises.
