South Korean educators no longer have to compete with smartphones for a student’s attention. What do educators in the world’s most wired country do when students just can’t put down their phones in class? They develop an app that has the power to remotely control all devices when on campus. Check out this article from Time Magazine.  What do you think of this story?

    Overall, I think this app is good for both the students and the teachers! Some students can’t survive without their phones! Now I finally realize how thankful I am that my dad disabled the Wi-fi on my phone, so now, all I can do with it is call and text. Because of that, my phone is usually turned off, and I only use it in an emergency.

      I don’t use my phone a lot either but it is worth having it just in case. I don’t use the Wi-fi on it but I only use it to call and text sometimes too.

      This is app is cool and I think the students will realize someday that it’s for their own good.
