Share post:

Indianapolis, IN – Indiana’s Senate Education and Career Development Committee has unanimously passed a bill aimed at regulating students’ use of wireless devices in classrooms. 

According to the bill’s details, the use of cellphones, tablets, laptops, and gaming devices would be restricted during instructional time. However, the legislation allows exceptions for educational purposes, emergencies, or health management, such as using apps for medication reminders or monitoring blood sugar levels.

The proposed law mandates school districts to publish their device usage policies on their websites. This move reflects a growing concern over the impact of technology on students’ focus and learning environment. The bill now moves closer to becoming law, signaling a significant shift in classroom technology policies in Indiana.
