Mobile phones and tablets banned from Anhui classrooms
Students in primary and secondary schools in East China’s Anhui province will be banned from bringing electronic devices, such as mobile phones and tablets, into the classroom.
The ban is part of a new scheme issued by the provincial department of education on the prevention and control of myopia among children and adolescents in Anhui.
The scheme also requires that the amount of time electronic devices are used for teaching in class should not exceed 30 percent of the total teaching time in principle. It also calls on parents to minimize the usage of electronic devices when accompanying their children and limit their children’s usage of electronic devices, especially preschoolers.
