Erica (Grade 7): One thing that annoys me is when people are on their phones while in line for something and are ignoring the person trying to help them.
Nick (Grade 7): When I get a text and I am not using my phone. If I don't notice that I got a text, they spam 'hi' so many times.
Ryan (Grade 7): When girls take duck face selfies. LOL
Jaanvi (Grade 8): When I am trying to talk to someone and they're just staring at their phone.
Jadon (Grade 8): When I send a long message and the only response is, "K".
Here are a few of our learners' thoughts on the subject:
Allison (Grade 8): Yes it is fair because, during class, a student could be on a website they aren't supposed to be on such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Tumblr. They may not be paying attention in class because of these websites.
Connor (Grade 7): It's not okay because the principals should trust us as students. If someone makes a bad decision, not everyone should pay for it.
Makaya (Grade 8): I think some websites are fair for schools to limit access. Some websites are inappropriate and shouldn't be viewed in schools, but not all of the websites the school blocks are inappropriate like some research websites, which limits students access to information.
Maddie (Grade 7): No, because the teachers tell us to follow them on Twitter and social media, but we can’t see what they post because it is blocked.
Anthony (Grade 8): I think that it is fair for schools to limit access to websites. I think that it is fair because many online sites can be very distracting, which would cause a student to not pay attention or stop whatever they were doing.
