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. To begin with, cell phones are a learning resource. Cell phones are so much more than just a phone now. There are very helpful tools on most phones, like calculators, reminders, and the internet. For example, if a student forgot to bring a calculator to class, they would have one right there on their phone.
People say that students can use their phones for emergencies at school but they can just make a phone call in the office. Also now days there are certain phone plans which include internet, so not only are they texting but they are now surfing the web as well! Students shouldn’t be allowed to have phones in school because it’s one of the major downfalls in their success at school. When the teacher is demonstrating a lesson to the class they’ll be busy with their phones instead. Also in most cases the students forget to turn off the volume to their cell phones which will then interrupt the class or test.
Cell phones are the modern devices that we do not need in our schools. Cell phones in schools could cause distraction among students and threaten their privacy. In the elementary school, students are too young and they easily distracted. Basically, these students have short attention span, and allowing cell phones in school could affect their concentration. Schools’ role is to provide a comfortable peaceful environment that helps students to stay focused and productive.
Cellphone usage during school have exceeded during the years due to the in bearable case that we can't use it for seven hours. Many schools are now allowing students to use cell phones during the school day. Without using the usage of the cellphone in class , about as many students do use it secretly without the teacher knowing. I completely agree with the schools who are letting the students decide weather they would want to use their phones while learning in class or not. 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.
How often do you use your cell phone, I always use my phone and see others using theres whether they are driving, walking down the street, or even in class. Cell phones have become a part of our everyday lives. However it is always a controversy in the classroom between teachers and students whether cell phone usage should be allowed in school. Students like me enjoy texting during their classes, but most teachers oppose having cell phones in class. I personally am one of the students who you could say has a “cell phone addiction” I am the one teachers catch texting from the corner of their eye as my fingers move quickly across the screen of my Iphone during class.
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 conducted an interview with my fiancée, Melissa Insley, on this issue and she happens to feel the same as myself. Cell phones should be allowed in class but they should be on silent unless the person has children or another important reason where someone may need to get a hold of them (Insley). A lot of people, me included, have ADD or other learning disabilities that make it hard for them to pay attention in class and the littlest bit of distraction makes them lose focus completely, and it is very important that they get the most out of the education that they are paying for (Insley). Even on vibrate it can cause a disruption to some people and that’s simply not fair to those who are really intent on learning the information. If someone really needs to use their phone for whatever reason that they can go out in the hallway outside of the classroom even for texting.
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.
Among the years technology has become a great part of our lives. Technology has developed throughout the years now if you see somebody in the bus or the train or running outside in the street they will be on their cell phones or listening to music or maybe even on their computers. We use them in everyday of our activity talking to your Family texting your friends or even sending out an email to a professor. It has become so much of an addiction that us as students and teachers even use them in school. My hypothesis for this paper is that at least more than fifty percent of students use their cell phones while in class whether is texting and/or browsing on their internet.
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. Students can also connect with friends, but not just because it’s a fun thing to do; my teacher asks us to text or email our friends when they are absent to let them know what’s going on in class and to inform them of any homework. When used responsibly, a cell phone can be an excellent communication tool. Also,cell phones–especially smart phones -are a fabulous learning resource.
