Schools will be required to consult with parents and pupils on the use of Smart Phones in Schools.

The Education Minister will send out a circular to all schools immediately telling them smart phones are an item requiring consultation with teachers, parents and pupils.

That includes what devices are allowed and if they can be used for photos and videos and if age restrictions will apply to younger pupils.

However, a spokesperson for the Association of Secondary Teachers in Ireland said most schools already have rules on smart phones, and said a blanket ban wouldn't work.
