  Case: BYOD
Our school has a BYOD (Bring your own device) rule. This allows the students to utilize their own form of technology during class. Due to the fact that 99% of the teachers are okay with this rule and allow the students to play on their cell phones once their classwork is completed, my kids are constantly checking their phones for messages from the students in other classrooms. I am in 8th grade, would it be a good idea for me to set up a station on the back wall where the students have to place their phones until it is approved by me for them to use them?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I think a safe station for them to store their phones is a great solution. If it distracts your teaching and their learning, it has become an issue. I would have it placed in the front though in labeled pockets with their name or a number. They must put the device in facing the wall so they are not distracted by it lighting up.

Comments: Perfect. Calculator storage pockets that hang on the wall near the teacher's desk could be an ideal situation. They can get their phone after they turn their work in/show you that it's complete. I LOVE this idea.

Comments: The only negative feedback is that putting it in the front will make the students more prone to staring at them during class, making it more of a distraction then a helpful tool.

Comments: Yes, I agree. Simply because there is a BYOD for wifi, it doesn't mean they should automatically be allowed to use their phones. We have a BYOD wifi at our school too, but it's for teachers, and students if it's after or before school. Our school policy is no cell phones during school hours. This is school after all.

Comments: I like the solution, especially when it has the students placing their own devices and their own labeled Pockets. This allows for students to not have to worry about if the device is going to be stolen, and the teacher knows who's devices who's in the case that it were to go off or make any annoying sounds

Comments: I don't agree that you should be taking students phones. Clear policy on use should be established, i.e. texting and checking your phone is not allowed but rather when you are done with your work or when there is a scenario where students should be looking up information only would be allowed.
