Moodoff Day will hold its annual “Morning Without Technology” event on Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015

With smartphones becoming a steadily growing commonality in schools, they present a double-edged sword. On the one hand they can assist in learning and scheduling, whilst on the other creating an impersonal and socially challenging element, leading in its extremes to cyberbullying and abuse. MoodOff Day encourages schools and their students to get behind the initiative and raise more awareness of nomophobia and its social and societal impact.Putting aside a smartphone for just five hours on Sunday 22nd 2015, during the fourth annual Moodoff Day provides an opportunity to interact with loved ones and friends in a meaningful way. For those who wonder if they’re nomophobic, relinquishing the hold on their smartphone during Moodoff Day offers a potentially enlightening experience.
