Cell Phone Use in (name of high school) Ring Ring Ring! Everyone has cell phones now, especially students in high school. Cell phones aren’t just for calling and texting people anymore; there are so many things they can do now. Technology is moving so fast now-a-days that if students at (name of high school) aren’t equipped with things such as iPad’s instead of books yet, then students should at least be able to use cell phones in school. 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.
I believe they should not just be permitted to use cell phones, they should be required to use them. Cell phones don’t just allow students to stay connected with family and friends, they are also an excellent learning resource, and they encourage the responsible use of technology. To begin with, cell phones make it possible for students to stay in touch with family and friends.A student can call home and ask a family member to bring them a forgotten assignment or lunch money or to come pick them up if they are sick. Also, cell phones 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
