Media Studies and Student Mobile Phones
This year many courses are adding media studies within the content. I am getting a flood of pupils coming with mobile phones asking for the pictures and videos to be downloaded via the techies bluetooth adaptor. Problem is on some occasions very risky content is on the phones. One instance of this was a male pupil with pics of his naked girlfriend. Here the teachers and senior management are promoting the use of pupil mobile phones in the pursuit of the media element. I am at loggerheads with the deputy head over this issue.
What are your thoughts.
