It is easy for a student to “glance” at a picture of an answer without the teacher noticing. Allowing cell phones in a classroom setting is a simple way for students to cheat on tests. Students can become distracted during class by text messages. Texting in class has become a growing problem in school settings. Students focus on the content of the message instead of the lesson.
Students could sneak and text during class and their teachers won’t notice. Ever heard of the phone reading? So students put their phones in their book and pretend like their reading but they are actually texting friends.You could also get distracted while texting and you could miss some valuable information. Students could also get caught up in abbreviating their words like “wassup” “wyd” wduwttb” and way other words. I also catch myself doing that and I try to prevent it.
I know a lot of teachers don’t allow their students use cellphones in class, because they think that cellphones can be very distractive. Using a cellphone during class is disrespectful to teachers; students might use cellphones to cheat on a quiz or test, and all kinds of other reasons. But personally, I think teachers should allow their students to use cellphone during class. There are good reasons for not allowing students to use cellphones in the classroom, but there are also many good reasons for letting students use cellphone in class, like helping students with their schoolwork, avoiding missing important information, letting students know how to let cellphone help with their professions, letting students be taught which are the responsible ways of using technology, and many reasons besides. The benefits of cellphone use outweigh than negatives.
Students are often unable to write effectively without some aid from spell check programming. Cell phones have autocorrect for texting and computers have auto spell for Microsoft programs. When students have to write papers for class, majority of the time they will always be typed, which makes spelling one less thing to worry about. The involvement of Facebook and

Mobile phones are a safety feature in a world that has become unsafe and unfriendly especially to children. How many adults feel safer knowing they have a cell phone in their not simply for talking to friends, but “just in case”. I know I do and have used it more than once to summon help.
One big advantage is when you have problems at school, something serious happened or teacher wants to talk to your parents, nothing is easier than dial a number on your phone. Secondly, almost everyone is taking advantage from cell phones because of its plenty of functions – calculator, stopwatch, camera, reminders and much more. Where the cell phones have great merits there are also demerits as well. Lots of people use their mobile phones just for enjoyment not for productive use and this is a big disadvantage of cell phones. Today teenage students also have cell phones and they do not pay attentions on their work and keep themselves busy in messaging and music even they use cell phone during school timing.
Therefore, the best way to overcome the language difficulties is forcing the students to speak only English in the class room, and joining college activities and conversation club to interact and practice with other English language learners and native speakers. There are many benefits to this solution. First of all, the students are convinced to be brave about speaking English regardless of bad grammar and errors. Therefore, they will be more confident to participate in the class discussions. Second, since they have the conversation club including classmates and others English learners, they can practice and learn each other during that time, so speaking English will become their daily routine by doing that activity.
The problem arises that cell phones interfere with a teenager’s ability to execute an effective and accurate face-to-face social and written communication in an educational environment. Young people have become so much more comfortable with text messaging that many times, they would rather text someone than talk to them face to face, even when they are in the same room, the same car or the same cafeteria table during lunchtime. Social networking has created a serious breach in the ability of young people to communicate and interact with each other face to face. Most students are not even aware of their surroundings because they are busy texting. For example, Students who are sitting in the same cafeteria during lunch would text each other from one table to another.
One of them is when it use a school going students, like class of 4,5,6.When they use mobile phone or cell phone they can’t attentive their study properly. Mobile phones have redefined connectivity and communication. But high-end mobile phones have also turned out to be handy devices for criminals,anti-social elements and even activists. Mobile phones have their uses and misuses. * Cell phone at Schools Every school is different, but most allow students to bring phones as long as they turn them off during class.
