There is already cyberbullying, and just bullying in school without phones bullying won 't change much if you allow phones or not. If students want to bully, phones are taken away as discipline because sometimes the schools won 't do anything about bullying. Phones are privilege, if you can’t act responsible with them then you get discipline. In addition to this, students can send photos of the whiteboard, worksheets, or just tell their friends what is happening in class if they are missing school. That 's better than your friend texting you when they got home and they barely remember what they did in school.

Therefore, technology allows them to prevent wasting their valuable time by helping them find and search for whatever they want, as well as by delivering them results that are straightforward and to the point. Many critics may argue and say that technology in education is dangerous. It can waste a students’ time by getting him or her sidetracked by distractions they find online.

If students are being distracted on their phones in class they simply aren’t learning. “With the presence of your phone, you’re wondering what those people are doing,” says Bill Thorton, a professor at the University of Southern Maine. “Even if it’s just mental, your focus is not on the task at hand, whether it be trying to write an article, get this spreadsheet set up, or just socializing; your mind is elsewhere.” (Justin Worland). Most teachers want students to get good grades and do their best in school, but it’s not possible when they are contradicting themselves by allowing cell phones in school/classrooms.

It is believed that the point of his article was to try and prove that having computers in the classroom will not help us solve any problems we face in schools’, but in reality it is just another thing that will distract us from these issues.

Reasons Why Cell Phones Could Be Beneficial In Schools 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. My first point for why we should be able to use our cell phones in class is that it could potentially save the school thousands of dollars. Instead of schools having to buy laptops for everyone they could just buy 10 per class compared to 35 and spend money on something more beneficial, and have the students bring in their own devices. Alpena Public Schools alone spends thousands of dollars alone on technology, if students were allowed to use their cell phone in class and do their work on there they could only have to buy a few chromebook carts compared to all of the ones we have for each team now.
