Even when they came to school and they left in the middle of the day teachers could call them to know if they’re on campus. Principals, teachers, and school staff think that Texting other people in class to cheat is always going to be a problem, but if we try to put cell phones faced up on our desk during tests so teachers can monitor communications as teachers walk each row to check on each pupils work. Every advantage also has disadvantages, so you must work to make these devices be the servants they were meant to be. Any student who receives text messages or calls with another student during a test should get their phone taken away for the balance of the day. Cell phones, like all devices, are servants, not inherently evil unless
Ditto sending notes to absent classmates. Students can listen to music with ear buds if the cell phone is equipped with this option during independent study—many students find this relaxing and comfortable and are more productive as a result. Unacceptable use of cell phones—never use them for these purposes in school: Sending test answers to friends—that is cheating and is certainly wrong! Recording teachers—no one is perfect and teachers are reputed to be above any misdeed.

In terms of Lake Lure Classical academy, students are not issued individual computers but only a school set which has to be shared other classrooms. If students could use their cell phones this would save the school money for equipment because, parents are paying for the phones not the school. 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.
Cell Phones Affecting School In the twenty-first century, we have been bombarded with new technology and it has impact on every aspect of our life, including education. Technology advancement is one of the most essential factors for teenagers in western societies. It is booming and cell phones are only a fraction of this boom. With cell phones, adolescents are able to have an expanded social network that is not restricted by physical locations. For teens to interact with their peers, they only need to have cell phone contacts and the peer group experiences can be shared in virtually every place and time zone as long as they can access network coverage.
Students are in school for one main reason and that is to learn. And students will not learn anything if they are on their phones at school because once they start to use it they won't feel like learning and will most likely cheat on tests. However, having a cell phone’s not actually a bad thing; it’s just the matter of how you use it. Cell Phones can be a major distraction to the student’s education. It limits the ability of the student to concentrate, as they are constantly checking their phone to see who is calling or texting.
They will not have to run to get one. The administrator will show up faster and end the fight. Cell phones will provide a safer environment on campus for students and faculty.

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.
I would like to propose that I receive an Ipad, based on improvements seen in the schoolwork of other high school students with one, and on the differences it makes in ones lifestyle. First of all, there is a reason that schools all across the nation are equipping high school students with ipads. Thousands of study materials and aids are available through the device, with little to no hassle. All one has to do in order to purchase a textbook is to download it to the ipad, and often the virtual transaction is cheaper than the purchase of a tangible textbook. Informative videos and study aids are also available at the touch of a finger for students who struggle in certain subject.
Now, even our schools use e-mail to alert students of any news that they might need. When one thinks about what they do during a typical day, technology is present in most daily functions. From the coffee maker to an alarm clock to the computer at a desk, all of them are technology that has advanced to make things easier. The question is where technology should stop. For any who have lost their cell phone, they realize how dependant many are on something that is so small.
Also some parents say that they ant always control the content their kids access on the mobile phones. But then you see the same people always getting the best and new phones. Cell phones are great for the business workers and the everyday people also. Cell phones let the common person check their bank accounts, email someone, use their global positioning system to get directions to where they are going. This all comes in handy especially when they don’t have a computer at home.
