In Quebec, Canada, many secondary schools prohibit students from using cellphones on campus. However, data show that students are not turning off their phones despite the bans -- and, in fact, are using the devices for purposes such as plagiarising and bullying. Experts say this trend presents a problem for schools, which are addressing it in various ways, including enforcing all-out bans on cellphones or allowing them to be used in the classroom for academic purposes.
