Smartphone use in school is a major problem but now parents have a solution: MMGuardian.
In 1960, when teachers saw students looking down at their laps, they assumed that they were reading a smuggled in comic book.
Now, invariably, they assume the student is using a smartphone – with good reason. Smartphone use is becoming one of the worst sappers of teen productivity during school.
Smartphones present real opportunities to advance student learning. They offer, quite literally, a world of knowledge at the fingertips. But, all too often, students use smartphones to talk, text, and use apps – and the in-class distraction is taking a serious toll on student learning.
Until recently, parents were powerless. Now, they have a solution.
MMGuardian Parental Control is capable of ending in-school smartphone use by kids and teens.
MMGuardian enables administrators – usually parents but potentially educators – to control teens’ smartphones. MMGuardian’s Schedule Lock feature can remotely lock the child’s device at set times of day; for example during school hours. MMGuardian can also lock the device anytime; say, for example, if a teacher needed to remotely lock the phone of a student using it during class.
Parents know their kids should not be using the phone during school and now they have an answer.
