Room Date Project

Students used the Room Data Project sheet to collect data in each class as it pertained to their chosen question: How frequently do students use their cellphones in class?Date collected:

  1. What class period/block
  2. Room #
  3. Student A, B, etc.(no physical description or name)
  4. How many times the student observed: texting, talking, listening to music, scrolling through messages, etc.
  5. of times a student was told to put the phone away.

All data collected was merged.

We did a similar experiment, but we also looked at which teachers use as a tool/allow phones and which security guards confiscate earbuds/phones

I like the twist to the data collection by collecting data about whether teachers allow cell phones as tools or confiscated due to possible learning distraction.
