CELLULAR PHONES have a place in the schools.
But so too do rules to appropriately control what is done with them on campuses.
These were among the views of several students who attended the fourth annual EduNation forum at the Queen’s Park Steel Shed yesterday.

One of the panellists for the event was 15-year-old Abreena Redding, who told the MIDWEEK NATION that smartphones could enhance the learning experience for both students and teachers.
