The Scottish Government has published guidance to provide schools and local authorities with advice on how to develop local policies that encourage safe and responsible use of personal mobile technology in school, and beyond.

Speaking at the Respectme conference during National Anti-Bullying Week 2013, Minister for Learning Alasdair Allan unveiled the guidance on responsible use of phones, tablets and other mobile devices and an e-safety website.

 These policies should also be designed to protect staff, children and young people from harassment and abuse which can arise from the misuse of such technology.
