In Goldberger’s article, Disconnected Urbanism, he does not say much about the advantages of a cell phone and I do not believe he should have. If in fact he had mentioned some of the positive points of a cell phone, the article would not persuade the reader as strongly. He claims that the cell phone takes away from a person's experiences because it allows them to be in more than one place at a time. To truly experience something, you need to have all of your attention on it. The cell phone draws your attention away. I would say that if he had mentioned any of the advantages that the cell phones have, it would only be to acknowledge the need for them in emergencies or the convenience of them. He could have expressed to the reader that
It should be more important to know that something erratic is happening in your family, then worrying about distracting your classmates given that if a family member passed away, that would be more important to know than being concerned about distracting your classmates.

Cell phones are also useful during school because if there was an emergency to occur at the school, students can instantly call to inform their parents. In addition, there were many school shootings that happened in schools. Due to the help of cell phones, many lives of the children were saved in the school
Many parents buy us cellphones because they want to prepare us for adulthood and responsibilities. Another thing, is that they are good for emergencies because you never know when there is going to be a shooting, stabbing, or kidnapping at school. Also, cellphones are good for safety because if you end up in a shooting at school you can immediately call 911. Kids can use phones in school while there are in class because if they forgot a calculator at home they can use their device and use the calculator on there. Kids can also call there parents if they forget something at there house that they need to bring to school.
What is distracted driving? Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger the driver, passengers, and bystander safety. I believe that it is extremely important to emphasize the dangers of distracted driving among all drivers, but most especially teenagers—in this age of new technology. I do think that many drivers are aware of the dangers of driving distracted, but it is also possible that they simply decide not to follow the rules. Did you know that 37,000+ people die in automobile crashes in the U.S every year? It is completely astounding. The problem is not that we don’t teach drivers at all, but may it be because we don’t teach them enough?
Have you ever been in a situation in your classroom when you wanted to use your phone if it was to listen to music or you needed to research more than just the text you have been given? Even if some students may abuse this privilege and schools don’t believe in having them in the classroom, students should be able to use their cellphones in class because it could potentially save money for the school, help students feel more relaxed in the classroom and, be beneficial for students who have medical issues.
Even though banning cell phones reduce distractions in the classroom, phones should be allowed in the classroom, but restricted to school work because it offers more learning opportunities and gets kids excited about learning. By researching for this paper I have learned the benefits and the negative effects of technology, both in the classroom and in the outside world.

One of the major distractions for students has to be technology but cell phones are one device that distracts students more. Most people are on their phones either texting or on social media all the time yet some students use their phones during class time which is bad enough. “A new study has found that more than 90 percent of students admit to using their devices during class time” (Texting in Class). It is frustrating enough I believe for the teachers for some students not to complete or turn in assignments better yet using their phones during a lecture is also disrespectful. Social media is a great advantage that
Despite the fact that cell phones may be used for educational purposes, phones should still be banned from schools due to texting and posting, cyberbullying, and a use for non - educational purposes. As a student, I am faced with the problem, “No Cell Phones in Classrooms”. Many students like to bring their cellphones in class.

Without your smartphone who would tend to your crops on Hay Day? Who would take care of your Snapstreaks while you’re gone? Who will you argue with about the true shape of our planet? Cell phone users today cling to their devices as if they are a newborn baby. Carrying it around everywhere they go, showing it off to friends and family, doing whatever they can to protect it, and keeping it away from strangers. We have become obsessed with these “magical” hunks of metal. In fact, “50% of cell phone users feel uneasy when they leave phones at home”. This addiction to cell phones has led me to the following question: is it even possible to live without phones anymore? In order to find the answer to this “seemingly impossible” question, I decided to face the treacherous challenge myself so you don’t have to.
