So, some people believe that they should be able to use their phones at school. However, they should not use cell phones during school hours. For one, cheating is something that a lot of students like to do when they have a cell phone. Having a cell phone during an exam is unacceptable because if someone cheats they could get caught. If they get caught cheating, it is most likely that the teacher
In Stabroek News’ “Cell Phones Should not be allowed in schools“ a secondary student from West Demerard secondary school says that cell phones in class “Disturb other students who are trying to study”. Although most students would just say that they should look away or mind their own business and stop looking at what they are doing, it is very difficult for students to take their mind off of lsomething that has distracted them from their previous task, however brief it was. Students will get sidetracked easily by the sound of a phone ringing if not making sure it wasn’t theirs, they are trying to figure out whose did go off. If their friend is smiling or laughing at something on their phone they will want to see it too. If they decide to try to take a photo their friends and people near them will try to lean into it and attract attention of nearly half of the
Smartphones are not making making people intelligent because of grades, and their discipline towards others. Students have their cellphones on when they are in their classes and especially when the teachers are teaching in the class the students are using cellphone. That’s how kids are unintelligent because they don’t pay attention in the class, they don’t really learn and just be on their phone. “Exam scores climbed by as much as 6% in schools that imposed strict bans on cell phones” ( Kedmey). This quote means that exam scores went up by 6% when the school banned cell phones for kids.This supports my reason 1 because in my reason i talked about students have their cellphones in class and because of that their grades dropped down, they don’t pay attention in the class because of their cellphone and their grades dropped down.
The most apparent disadvantage is that mobile phone will be a distraction of students. To illustrate, texting in class has become a serious concern for educators. Dr. Patricia Fioriello, moderator of the High School Mediator website, warns that students can 't focus on the lesson if they are busy sending messages on their phones. It will distract lecturers and students who are trying to concentrate on the lesson. If a student is focused on texting, he is unable to absorb the information being demonstrated.
Sure, at home they can be doing what they want but at school, they should be learning not going onto social media and disengaging from the teacher. Cell phones with kids are just bad. An article called “Schools seek balance for cellphones in class” by Linda Matchan stated, “The texting, tweeting, and Snapchatting during class time are an incredible distraction and makes it much more difficult to teach. It’s pretty hard to compete with a very funny YouTube video.” You don’t want students to be engaged in a text chat or a video instead of listening to a reading or math lesson. This can distract other kids who might not get good grades either.
Students bring their cell phones everywhere with them, including school, where notifications or ringing disrupts in class. Cell phones could be a helpful source of information and communication. However, cell phones in school and in classrooms cause many problems. Schools should ban cell phones because it is too much exposure, it is disruptive, and students can cheat easily with the use of technology. First of all, cell phones should be banned in school because they provide young adults with too much screen exposure.
Why don’t teachers like it? Why do we want to change this situation? How did we get pulled into this predicament? First off we (us students) are not aloud to have our phones in class or school, “Students persistently use them a great deal for personal interactions via social media when they should be paying attention to what is going on in class”(Connie Fawcett). But there can be a certain time the students are aloud to play
Cell phones should not be allowed in school. Cell phones are distracting, cheaty, and provide too many opportunities for too many things. Some way that phones are distracting are some that involve texting in class, maybe playing mobile games. A phone in a classroom could even provide a distraction for other people, the phones might make noises or something of the sort, and the students might be taking pictures of other people. Phones can also be used to cheat, according to “Cons of Cellphones in School” By Jennifer Betts.
A recent university study found that 90% of college students surveyed admitted texting during class. Some even admitted sending messages during tests (Mockingbird5,2009). This abuse has led some teachers to ban their cell phones during classes and during their examination, because this can cause cheating. Other teachers in school informed to the students that if he or she saw someone using cell phones during examination, the owner of that cell phone will be automatically drop or receive fail in her/his test paper. Allowing cell phones in school is a danger to the education of students (Clark,A.,2006).
Once technology comes available it is important to learn and know the proper use of it. Children should be educated more to use it in positive way. Students are distracted by their phones when they are at school. As the teachers are always against the use of phones in school, students and computers when they are at school. One negative effect that students have at school is their lack of studies and grades.
