Of course a structured reason why phones should not be allowed in the classroom is that they are a distraction to the students and staff. Whether the child is on instagram, snapchat, twitter or many of the other online apps kids use to communicate with friends, they distract from learning. Teachers cannot compete with that weird video that their friend is showing them. For example Becky Dieffenbach 's thinks that, having phones in the classroom “just becomes a source of distraction for some students, because no matter how many times you repeat the rule that they can only be on technology when the teacher says it’s ok, they choose to ignore the rule and then disciplinary actions have to be enforced.”(Kiema). In short, this shows that teachers are fed up with phones even if they can be used for learning.
This quote shows how cellphones will not replace teachers but in school students are paying more attention to their cell phones rather than their teachers. Most students with cell phones are not thinking about the value of their teachers and how they can benefit you so much but cell phones are not helping the students school work or listen. Students will get so unfocused they will not do their call work and their time on the phone will cut into the school work time and not get anything done. Many many students are failing classes because of their cell phones. Cell phones are not helping students do their class work and are separating them from good
On account for distraction to prevent other students from doing their work, can access links to harmful websites and can be disguised as a gun, and is the number one reason for cheating. Phones shouldn’t be used in school. First of all, cellphones are detrimental because it distracts other students and classmates. The pew research says, “ ...Sixty five percent of students sneak their phones in school, and are distracted by it.” This means that other students are losing focus while trying to learn. Teachers also have a hard time teaching when a cell phone is constantly interrupting the class.
There are multiple things that are mandatory in the world. Some things that are more fun than others. For example going to a business meeting might be more boring than a mandatory event at a gaming center. Or doing a fun hobby that is required. Students come to school to work on school related subjects; such as, math, reading,writing, social studies, and science.
Technology has taken on a considerable amount of roles in education. Teaching a class substituting laptops and tablets for paper and books. Most people extol the ability of using technology while in school. However, the widespread use of information technologies force students’ lives to move too quickly and forces them into isolation. Technology has the world living longer and thinking shorter.
For example, calculations need to run the mind, but the students are turning to the device or the so-called calculator. Also copying and pasting currency without reading the content. So it is lead to forgetting the basic way of learning. For example, when the teacher gives students homework they are turning to use of technological devices to search for the answers, rather than return to the main book. On the other hand, we can use the tablet devices in a good way to avoid all these defects, by observing teachers or the parents for their children and students and put some guidance of using tablets, such as placing the appropriate time.
The iPad gives students the chance to be creative and reach their full potential in their education. "The iPads were most effective in prompting their most disconnected students to interact in the classroom and have fun while learning"(Savenije). The iPad gives the student the incentive to want to learn in a fun and new way that intrigues them. Not only does the iPad make learning more interesting, it can also help students
In the article "Virtual Students, Digital Classroom,” by Neil Postman he presents his thoughts about technology in class. Postman comes to the conclusion that high-technology in the classroom won’t solve any of the schools’ issues and will also take over his and other teachers teaching jobs. Computers in the classroom will not help children learn any more than they already know in school, if teachers were replaced computers, students will lose the face to face interaction that can only be with another human, and teachers go to school to learn to teach a specific subject and how to teach that subject to the students. Postman portrays himself to be an intelligence, descriptive and opinionated man. Postman knows a lot when it comes to the subject of technology use in classrooms and he proves it in his in his words.
Technology such as the electronic tablets schools are considering to purchase can cause many headaches, and use students time on things such as sitting on their bed with their device. Us humans are now addicted to our phones and laptops not realizing how much our world is changing around us. Thus, schools shouldn 't purchase electronic devices for each student. In schools, teachers have access to many different sources on websites and ebooks. However, why do the students need to be provided with devices such as tablets?
In “Ban Cell Phones in Schools”, Joe Smith argues that students should not bring cellphones to schools, because students will be distracted and addiction both it in class and out of class, and it will cause students’ academic failure and parents’’ complains about teachers. Also, parents can contact with staff in school if there are emergencies. However, Smith’s argument is wrong, because school have attractive activities to participate, teachers and students can control the time playing with phones, and school staff cannot accompany with students anytime. First of all, school work is not as boring as what Smith said, there are many interesting and appealing activities both in class and out of class. Students will acquire knowledge and have fun in school without playing cellphone.
