“I think they can be used for multiple things. We play a lot of games with them but they are also a good study tool for us. Some people really abuse them but teachers should have an idea of the people who are abusing the privilege.”

“I have mixed opinions – it depends on what class you are in. If you are in shop class, I can understand. I use my phone for music and things like that.”

Ethan Fitzpatrick 100 Mile House “Since I am autistic, for me it is a health matter. I have to keep my phone on me at all times. I am allowed to us it in class,but with the new restriction, I am unable to use it in class. Therefore, it is a health hazard for me. If I have a breakdown,who is going to know and who will be able to stop it?”

We play a lot of games with them but they are also a good study tool for us.Some people really abuse them but teachers should have an idea of the people who are abusing the privilege compared tothe average student. Perhaps, they can limit the use of them, but for the people who use them properly - they are greatstudy tools.”
