Hi Emma, Sometimes a student seems to express they have lost interest in the lesson by producing the mobile phone. and it can feel like you are having to compete with phones at times. I 've started to become more and more less tolerant of the phone in my lessons and i've been asking for them to be put away. When the student plays music now I will either take the phone away or I will make it clear I want to see it disappear. I've used them only a couple of times in the class for examples of music and imagery but the students know they should not be using them.
