The Times


Tomorrow's Student has been created to provide schools with a tool that aims to reduce the dangers of social media and improve students’ focus, productivity, sleep and personal interactions.

The effective use of smart devices within schools is an essential skill for children to learn and necessary for parental contact and safety, but at what point does casual use become an addiction? What are the detrimental effects on students?

Tomorrow’s Student offers schools a Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile App Management (MAM) solution enabling them to control what pupils can access via their smart devices, including the ability to disable the camera and browser functions.


Tomorrow’s Student has taken the view that the extreme use of mobile devices in schools affects not only a child’s ability to learn and focus, but also their ability to develop the skills necessary to build meaningful relationships and work towards long-term goals and achievements.

Effects of Social Media


‘Likes’ and other
such interactions on social
media have been shown to
release a hit of dopamine in
the user, just as any other
addictive substance or
activity does.
Social Media is proven to be as addictive as tobacco, alcohol, and gambling.
Unlike addictive or
controlled substances, there are no legal age restrictions and regulations on some social media use, and technology companies poorly police their own voluntary codes.
Children are also becoming addicted to the online approval of their peers.
show that down-comparison, (comparing with inferiors) and up-comparison, (comparing with people better than oneself) are both causes of depression.
depression,” defined as emotional disturbance that develops when preteens and teens spend a great deal of time on social media sites, is now a real and growing problem.
who engage with social media during the night could be damaging their sleep and increasing their risk of anxiety and depression.

The nucleus

more often.

If your child was an alcoholic, wouldn’t it be wise to remove the alcohol from the house?


It is well documented that looking at the manicured lives of friends on social media can actually cause depression in individuals, leading to...

Increased Isolation

Studies show that heavy users of social media and the internet are increasingly likely to suffer from feelings of isolation and loneliness.

Rise in Suicide Rates

Statistics show a dramatic rise in suicide rates amongst centennials and millennials; some academics attribute this to social media and internet use.

Interaction and Morale

Real life relationships are suffering as children no longer take as much time to interact with each other in the real world.


Studies show that even though a child may only look at their device for a few minutes, it is the amount of time that it takes them to get back on task after such an interaction that can be even more detrimental.


The areas of the brain that encourage introspection and, in turn, develop empathy and understanding, are only active when a person is totally undistracted. By being constantly engaged with their devices or thinking about their next post, we are in danger of developing a generation that cares less about others.
