Cellphone detox

There’s an interesting experiment underway at a Spryfield school….what some are calling cellphone detox.

Teacher Jamie Lynn Quinn began an experiment this week with her grade 8 class telling her students to leave their cellphones at home for the week…and then it spread to the whole school. She said students in class were on their phones constantly…texting, instagramming, snapchatting and she’s put a stop to it, at least temnporarily. She has noticed an increase in anxiety levels in many students. Over ten of the 220 students in the school also saw their phones confiscated because they couldn’t put them down.
