This issue is based upon the perspective of the teacher. I am not saying let these kids constantly have access to their phones (for example, let them use the mobile phone during a lecture), but when the occasion arises that the student needs an alternative informational source, allow the use of a phone. There is absolutely no reason to disallow the use of an information source in the classroom under ordinary circumstances. With the recession going on in the United States today, schools have been receiving less funding. Superintendent Gearl Loden asked a question on huffingtonpost.com, why do we keep buying new technology when students have it right there in their pocket?
Due to the enormous development of technologies, this era can also be called the Age of Technology. With the purpose of surviving in the social, education and employment world, technology is becoming the most essential tools. Is it possible to understand a teenagers' world without internet, mobile phone (especially text messages) and the rest of modern technology? Teenagers and youth nowadays have a life there modern technology dominates their communications. Teenagers and the younger generation of these days want to help change the world and make it a better and more comfortable place to live.
For college students, cell phones are part of their daily lives. Unfortunately, cell phones have become a nuisance and a new challenge for college students to overcome. As Sabrina Gibbons exemplifies in her article about how cell phones affect students, “Teachers worry about the distractions of cell phones ringing in class or students texting rather than paying attention. Cheating also ranked as a concern” (Gibbons).Especially for students, the temptation to get a quick text off in the middle of a lecture is extremely enticing. However, the distraction cell phones bring to college students affects their education and ability to concentrate on the material at hand.
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.
So instead of asking why kids should be allowed to vote, shouldn't we be asking why kids shouldn't be allowed to vote? One possible reason why kids cannot vote is because they don't know much about politics. Most kids don't realize it, but they know a lot about politics. In fact, they might know more about politics than adults because kids get a hands-on experience with politics every day. Every day kids are struggling to become popular in school by winning people over.
New Media: Technology and Society Kim Amat Com/400 April 29, 2013 New Media: Technology and Society This essay will focus on the changes of technology and how it has shaped society today. The changes in regard to digital divide and how one day this will not be an issue for those who do not have access to computers and Internet.

Because of this I respect my schools policy which benefits the students (myself), for example, our education and safety. I think cell phones are a bad influence on students, during school hours. Students should be coming to school for an education. Teachers are required to teach students. Teachers neither want, or have the time to compete with a phone to gain student's attention.
With technology they would not be able to get half of their things done like homework assignment or research for a school paper. Technology has become a central force that “fuels the rhythm of daily life.” However, teens are beginning to take advantages and using them in wrong way. Overall, teen’s use of technology affects them in a negative way because of less interaction, distraction, and no filtration. Nowadays, when teens come home from school, they first thing they do is log on social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter which leads to less interaction. It is becoming a lot more common to chat online or send a text message rather than communicating in person.
What is the impact of mass media on the 21st century? The media today changes our ideas about the world, our perceptions and even our life’s. Mass communication, like electronic media, were inventions of the twentieth century, though invented earlier, were essentially reinvented in the last 100 years to reach a mass audience. Mass media, for the last few decades has been the most powerful tool used by the media to manipulate the masses. Mass media are media forms design to reach the largest audience possible.
Another reason for prohibiting cell phones in classes is an increased temptation for students to communicate with friends instead of focusing on study material. Once again, the level of technology allows clever smartphone owners to regularly check their social networks profiles and browse Internet content. Texting itself, while being an extremely popular way of mobile communication among youth, becomes even more tempting when a student is listening to a lecture but has their mind wandering (Wundermuller). One of the strange
