At San Lorenzo High School, a teacher introduced Yondr's pouch in class, and it is said that the pouch was used from 8 am to 5 pm in all schools in all schools.
It was the start of Yondr's founder Graham Dugoni who developed the pouch when he noticed that visitors to the concert were concentrating on smartphones rather than music. A big point is that the pouch is a "physical" and "physical" solution. "I want to check a smartphone" is a physical impulse, affecting the nervous system, thought pattern, and social interaction. By closely blocking this impulse, Mr. Dugoni thinks that the foundation of real world dialogue and freedom of expression will be secured.
"If today's children with many anxiety and suffering have strange things, it usually has to do with the world ahead of the screen consuming 8 hours a day," Dugoni said comment. The students seemed to feel uncomfortable at the beginning when the pouch was introduced, but also said that there was an increase in seeing the scenery interacting with friends. Some students said that they became able to concentrate more thanks to smartphones becoming unusable.
The pouch has also been introduced in schools in the United States, Canada and Europe other than San Lorenzo High School, and the price is 15 to 30 dollars (about 1600 to 3300 yen) per student, depending on the size of the school It is.
