However, text messaging has been a major problem with students texting in class interfering with the disruption of their learning. Most teachers express how they feel about cell phones being a distraction to others, however very few students have complaints about the use of cell phones in class. Text messaging in class should be allowed by choice of the students, it can easily be discreet and the possibility of an emergency. Text messaging in class should be allowed by the choice of students. In the argument “Tapping into Text Messaging” by Janet Kornblum, says teens, techies and other early adopters leading the charge to text say it is a great way to communicate when they are too busy to talk or when making a call would be rude or impractical.
The students are so into their phones even when they go home, they disrespect their parents so much by texting at the dinner table. Texting is a huge epidemic among teenagers but even among adults. Calling is a good way to stay in touch with those around you. When you call someone you maintain contact through real words not abbreviations. Those who call spend less time annoying those around them when their phone keeps ringing and vibrating every five minutes.
Ludden uses a serious and factual tone towards her audience and reader’s to try and convince them on how to decrease the use of technology within teens. After reading the article, I have come to realize that teen only use their cell phones for the latest gossip going around or for social media, but sometimes there are ways teens find their cell phones to be useful in their lives. One reason is that teens find it easier to get their work done by using their cell phones to communicate with their friends to get what the missed out on. For example, contacting a friend or classmate to get the latest homework assignments when they are sick or just what the teacher had explained is how teens find their cell phones being useful in their everyday life. Additionally, sometimes it could be a good thing to find out the rumors or gossip going around because it could be about them or one of their friends.
Mr. Magee, The question of whether cell phones should be allowed in schools has been debated over the years. Most school administrations regard cell phone use as disruptive and distracting, and have implemented policies that prohibit using them on school grounds. There are benefits to letting the student body use their cell phones at school. Your parents can reach you in the event of an emergency, and vice versa. If in danger, we can reach the authorities or a medical provider.

The Constant Battle of Parenting Teens Teenagers permanently attached to their cellular devices has become a naturally occurring phenomenon in today’s technologically advanced world. It almost seems impossible to separate teenagers from their phones, and these gadgets are not left idle either. It is a rare occurrence indeed for a teen to call another’s home phone for any reason. However, before texting was around, teenagers continually rang each other’s home lines, and parents frequently fumbled to take messages appropriately for their teenagers. In his essay “Handling Teen Calls”, Gary Lautens exposes the harsh realities associated with being a parent of a teenager in modern society through his recounts of fumbled attempts at taking phone messages for his son correctly.
Having to dial phone numbers and answering calls can really take your attention away from the road. It is hard to look at the dangers of using a cellular phone when there are so many good uses. Many people depend on their phone for many aspects of their job and could not get by without it. It is possible for them to take a minute and get off of the road and talk before heading back out. This would decrease the number of accidents a great deal.
Technology is a really over-powering thing and a growing epidemic and I feel that it's really taking a tole on young people but at the same time advancing the communication between us. To know that teens are using their phones on average 60 times a day is quiete saddening because there are so many other things you can be doing, such as doing home work, studying and spending time with family.
In these studies, the conversation itself was as distracting as dialing or retrieving messages. People who talk on a cell phone while driving develop an extremely narrow focus, and become unaware of many of the things happening around them on the road. Naturally, the lobbyists for the cellular communications industry are fighting at every legislative level to eliminate or void any bans. Verizon, which has some 28 million cell phone users, is determined that its $14.95 headset would circumvent any bans. However, the second argument is a valid one: for the most part, cell phones are a convenience, and not really necessary, even as some people argue the point.
