    When I did my masters, I found it frustrating that my classmates would often spend entire lectures on phones. In seminars, it was less common, but still happened and was rude above all. Phones are distracting, there’s no doubt, but they are also so useful. I can understand why some teachers would ban them. They are great (and necessary) for Kahoot. Even messaging apps like Wechat are useful to use in class, ss can send each other documents they’ve lost and the teacher could use a group chat to communicate with all ss while in BO rooms if using a platform that doesn’t allow it (although teachers being in group chats is, for some dubious reason imo, discouraged from a welfare perspective).
