Any child with a cell phone can have it confiscated. I disagree with this policy. I was a student of elementary and high school and if they had prohibited the usage of cell phones I am well aware that many students, including me would use their phones indiscriminately, trying to call or text friends during class or risk having their phones go off in the classroom. That’s why I can’t agree with the policy of no cell phones. It isn’t practical.
Students can cheat on exams using their phones. Teenagers who constantly have their cell phones with them during class have become adept at using their cell phones without getting caught by the teacher. Any student can text answers to a friend. If the teacher happened to ask what a student was doing, he could say he was texting his mom and the teacher would never know the student was cheating. Students can look up answers on internet browsers.
The student can then call their parent and ask them to take them home. Parents can also track their children's location using their cellphones' GPS system. Most cell phones today have a built-in GPS chip to allow their location to be found at any time. So, parents can make sure their children are at school and aren't ditching. And, of course, children could contact their parents in dangerous situations and vice versa.
One big issue concerning mobile phones and teenagers is the use of mobile phones in school. Many teenagers believe that mobile phones should be allowed in school or during class. But during school time some students use their phone inappropriately to take photos or videos of other people. Things like this can lead to blackmail and can upset other students, this is one reason why we think mobile phones should not be allowed to be used in school. When teenagers bring their phone to school and forget to turn them off or silence them: it distracts the student with the cell phone it distracts other students it distracts the teacher no one is be able to focus on the lesson its rude to use a cell phone during class
If there a gunmen, bomb threat or a fire happened students could contact help, call parents, take a picture of the suspect/suspects and warn others. If the students could contact help the police or any emergency service could get to the students quicker. Taking the picture of the suspect/suspects could give the police a person or persons to look for. They could warn others in the school or in other buildings by texting someone. They could also call parents then the parents could call the police.
The driving age should be raised. 16 year olds lose control of their vehicle because they are beginners. They shout require at least 2 years of training because automobile accidents are dangerous and there could be a lot more if we don’t enforce this. No parent will ever admit that their child is irresponsible. No parent wants to imagine their kid getting into a car crash or hitting a pedestrian, but this is reality where 16 year olds swear they can answer this text they will only look down for a second but then they think it is okay to do that and then they may eventually start taking pictures on their self at the wheel that’s terrifying what if they crash?
Would you risk texting and break your brand new phone while doing it? In this paper I’m going to list all the cons of having phones at school like cheating, loosing it and non educational purposes. My first reason is that the cell phones could be used for non educational purposes like prank calling students during school, cheating and even cyber bullying. Students can cheat by texting their friends to tell them the answer. Students could sneak and text during class and their teachers won’t notice.
Critical and Creative Thinking in Society Short Essays A public interest in which critical and or creative thought could have been used for a better outcome is the situation of 16 year old Jada from Houston Texas. Jada says she was attack at a friend’s home where she was invited from friends at her high school. Jada claims the teenage boys who were hosting the party gave her punch to drink. She believes it was spiked with a drug. The young girl claims she passed out at the party and had no idea about what happened until her classmates started sharing tweets, photos and videos on social media.
Cell phones make it possible for students in touch with family and friends. A student can call home and ask a family member to come pick them up if they are sick or bring them something they forgot. Also, cellphones allow parents to keep track of their children’s whereabouts before, during and after school. 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.
One look at their teenager's texts is enough to give the parents evidence that the online language they use threatens to erase the meaning of everything they have ever said to them and destroy everything they've learned in school. Proper spelling and grammar are replaced by abbreviations. But the internet is not all bad; there are many educational benefits when the Internet and social media are used properly and wisely. Kids without access to libraries or experts can be as well informed as those with access to every educational resource. Teenagers have more access to dialogues about politics, religion, racism, sexism.
