We are calling teachers around the country to join us for a very important cause: Improving students' attention in the classroom. They are the future, we are the present and we have a common enemy: "Phubbing".
“Phubbing” —the habit of snubbing someone in favor of a mobile phone —may not be part of our everyday vocabulary, but it’s certainly part of our everyday life. How often, a great potential conversation turned into a superficial one because a friend, a family member, a colleague or yourself, pulled out a smartphone and decided that social media was more interesting?
This new phenomenon may seem relatively harmless, but research shows that it may be hurting our relationships and causing attention and focus problems, especially in the classrooms.

- Top technology leaders like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates among other confirmed they've restricted or limited their children's screen time (New York Times, 2017)
