All in all, students at (name of high school) should be able to use their cell phones during school hours because they are a learning resource, they teach responsibility, and just in case of emergencies. To begin with, cell phones are a learning resource. Cell phones are so much more than just a phone now. There are very helpful tools on most phones, like calculators, reminders, and the internet. For example, if a student forgot to bring a calculator to class, they would have one right there on their phone.
And, of course, there’s always the possibility of a student needing to contact a parent because of a dangerous situation. Thus, having a cell phone is like having a guardian angel. Students can also connect with friends, but not just because it’s a fun thing to do; my teacher asks us to text or email our friends when they are absent to let them know what’s going on in class and to inform them of any homework. When used responsibly, a cell phone can be an excellent communication tool. Also,cell phones–especially smart phones -are a fabulous learning resource.
If schools don’t have enough calculators or computers, students can use their cell phones as a tool to go on an educational website. They will be learning about technology. This will help students get engaged in learning and increase test scores. Another advantage of having a cell phone at school is in case of a change in plans or emergency. Most students are involved in sports or after school activities.
Instead of having to use multiple different devices, you could your cell phone for all your schooling needs. Many teachers aren't aware of all the abilities they could be utilizing from cell phones and I believe it would make teaching a lot easier. Many jobs today have something to do with technology. With every new invention of technology a new job is created and a new subject is in need of being learned. If you deny students the use of cellphones you could possibly be keeping them from learning a dire skill for their future jobs.
People say that students can use their phones for emergencies at school but they can just make a phone call in the office. Also now days there are certain phone plans which include internet, so not only are they texting but they are now surfing the web as well! Students shouldn’t be allowed to have phones in school because it’s one of the major downfalls in their success at school. When the teacher is demonstrating a lesson to the class they’ll be busy with their phones instead. Also in most cases the students forget to turn off the volume to their cell phones which will then interrupt the class or test.
They should use cellphones because it teaches them responsibility, emergency cases that can't be handled in the office , and also assemble their ability to use it for work and other professional routine for the future. First of all, cellphones would teach them responsibility during the school hours. By responsibility I mean it would make them think more. Students have a mindset that they would know when whether or not they should use the phone or not during the lesson. Students can have more access for educational purposes like researching something they do not get or downloading an app so they can study more while they have free time.
They can also keep track of me, so I won’t be afraid of getting lost anymore. If they allowed elementary and high school students to have cell phones, I believe that it would be more convenient in their studies, since cell phones have the function of the internet. The students won't have to bring a laptop when they want to do research outside. The smart phones also have useful apps such as the dictionary, the schedule, and ibook. The dictionary app can to find the new vocabulary very quickly, the schedule app can remind your plans and the ibook app can allow you to choose what types of book you would want to read.
Students like to enjoy texting during their classes but some schools however got a problem with it. I can understand that teachers come to school to educate students because it is their job and they find it disrespectful if a student isn’t listening, but have you thought about how cell phones could change student’s life? Many school system got problems with students using their cell phones during school hours, they also got a policy for students not using their phones during school hours, and I can understand it but do you know that using phones during classes can change student’s life? Well it can think about a time when you needed a dictionary and the school ran out of them and you had a phone with dictionary software but you couldn’t use your phone so you had to wait 30 minutes for nothing. Think of another time when you had to contact your parents for an emergency but you didn’t know their number and your phone had their number but you couldn’t use your phone because of the school policy.
A buddy system can be put into place. Many cell phones are equipped with calculators—plenty of new math curricula encourage the use of a calculator when problem-solving. A student should become accustomed to having a calculator handy for both homework and real life math applications. If a student is slow to copy notes from the board, pictures can be taken of the missed notes and accessed later. Ditto sending notes to absent classmates.
ell phones, especially smart phones are becoming a valuable resource, not only to aid in learning, but also for other reasons, such as parents needing to be in communication with their kids. Since high schools are supposed to be preparing students for the real world, where they will allowed to use cell phones, it seems pointless to not allow students to use cell phones for communication and research. Even with the increasing benefits of cell phones in school, many people argue against having cell phones allowed in school, and demand that they be confiscated on sight due to them being a “distraction”. Usage of cellphones for in class assignments as well as communication before and after classes is an important and necessary resource. Cell phones are becoming an increasingly beneficial tool in learning.
