If students were permitted to use cell phones they could have the newest updates at the click of a button. Schools wouldn 't have to pay to update and send them in to get fixed. In an article titled As Schools Lift Bans on Cell Phones, Educators Weigh Pros and Cons it states, “The second part is that they’re really seeing them as a learning tool, not just a toy for entertainment, and they’re seeing that they can be cost effective for the schools instead of having to purchase technology for students.” If schools didn’t spend so much money on new textbooks that could be downloaded onto students personal devices, they could put more money towards making the school a better work environment for students and
Since our technology is evolving so much and has already evolved in many ways; learning won’t be such a hassle. Others are suggesting that it would benefit how much a student pays attention. Others say it allows student/parent contact without any trouble. Even though cell phones are banned in many schools they can be a very useful tool. Cell phones should be allowed to be used in school because the price on school supplies would be less of an expense, and students would be more likely to participate.
Karen Ka Ramey from Techucation, author from “The Pros and Cons of Cell Phones in School” state how having phones is convenient and are useful for daily activities. “Since cell phones are light and easy to carry, that can act as emergency contact tools for students.” Phones are convenient technology, in schools and out. If teachers needed students to go online and research something, students could easily access their phones. Some school buys electronic and have students are able to use them, but schools wouldn’t need to buy too much if they let students use their own phones.
Some teachers may allow students to use their cell phones when working on certain assignments where they may be necessary or helpful. Teachers may even permit students to use their phones when they have finished all their homework and have free time left over. Many students use their phones while they are in class anyway, despite the school’s rules on the devices. If students were allowed to use their phones during class, as long as it did not cause any distractions or problems, it could benefit teachers and students alike. Cell phones, when used accordingly, can serve multiple purposes other than just texting and making phone calls.
Students should be able to use their cell phones in class because they can use them to check facts, you can do assignments on them, and parent to student contact would be much easier. One reason why Students should be able to use our cell phones in class is because they can use their mobile devices to check facts and get the information they need with their smartphones or mobile devices.
The source that I got this from is FamilyEducation.com. The evidence for this is “Cellphones are easy to turn on and off, and during class, they are silenced.” This means during class periods, they are silenced, and when they are active, they can be turned on when they are needed. The effect of this is teachers pleased of the technology of cell phones, and with this they are not distracting to the class. It can help students learn, and are not distracting to other students at the same time.
Although phones can be distracting, there are tons of educational uses for phones. In an article called “40 Uses For Smartphones In School,”(Leyden) it gives 40 educational uses for phones during school hours. One reason that I think that phones should used in school is because There are a wide variety of educational apps for phones that students have available at their disposal as long as they have their phone on them. There are some apps even teachers could use like a testing app as this was also mentioned in “40 uses for smartphones in school.”
The reason is that if a school 's library is outdated or lacking in a selection of titles, a student might find it difficult to compile the necessary research for an essay or research paper. There was a primary method in the video, survey of teachers, with the next question: "How do student cell phones impact the effectiveness of your tutoring lessons," 44% of tutors responded that cell phones had no impact on the lesson whatsoever. Moreover, 54% responded that cell phones were a great resource for students. 54% of teacher is the largest number. That makes his reason stronger because teachers know better the effects of cell phones on the lessons.
Have you ever considered the amount of productivity, responsibility, blocking of confusion, and the amount of satisfied office workers cell phones can make happen in schools. Well, if you are a principal cell phones could make everyday life at your schools a lot easier. ¨Using smartphones for on-the-fly research during class is a start. ¨ But a good next step is having students gather pertinent information and then learn ways to analyze the validity of their sources.¨ (centerdigitaled)
According to research, people who do online say that there is lessons on the computer is the same as in school. There is mostly only math, english, science, social studies, etc. This is important because kids these days can not sit in their rooms all day, they need to do physical activities. For example, recess they get to run around and get some exercise. Being active is great for you health, even when your young.
