A civic group called School Beautiful Movement, together with the Korea Agency for Digital Opportunity and Promotion and SK Telecom has launched a program to teach the young proper cellphone use, in preparedness of protecting them from the harsh recesses of mobile addiction. Twelve Korean elementary, middle and high schools were selected for the pilot program and for the next two months.
These students will gather in a group to talk about their cellphone use (not to mention the hardships texted to them from the loves of their lives), and the symptoms they feel when they are without their cellphone. The students will voluntarily not use their cellphones in school to test their reactions. Riot police are on call. — Andrew Dobrow
