Teachers, and parents debate, whether allowing students to use cellphones school is a good or bad idea. I believe that allowing students to use cellphones in class is a wonderful idea. The issue is teachers think that having a student using cellphones at class is a bad idea. This is false because students using cell phones at class could enhance their learning. I have chosen three reasons to support my argument.
This is important because deciding on if students should use them or not determines the fate of their learning experience. There are several reasons as to why cellphones can be a big help to students in school. Teachers should let their students use their phones in class, reasons being that cellphones can be a useful tool, students should carry them around for safety reasons, and students can be entertained with new, fun ways to learn. To begin with, teachers should allow students to use their phones because they can be used as a useful tool. A quote from an article titled, “The Cellphone Debate” by Abby McGinn and Anjali Arigela, goes, “Cellphones are not just a safety precaution, they can also be a useful tool.
Should We Allow Cellular Devices in Classrooms? Although cell-phones can be a distraction in the classroom, they can also be a big help to students. With the use of cell phones in class student and schools can benefit from easy acceptable classroom tools,less cost of classroom technology, and web access easily accessible to students. So why do we not allow cell phones in the classroom if they can help improve our classrooms and schools? Classroom tools are hard to carry around and find.
Sure you want your students to get an A on a test but not for the wrong reasons. If the school that you teach at doesn't have a phone ban anyone can just take out their phone and text their friend and sk for the answer on the test. Students can also just look it up on google or look at a screenshot that another student took. The article cons of cellphones in school states, “ Texts can be sent quite discreetly while in the classroom. Taking it one step further, a student can excuse himself to go to the washroom, only to use that time to send text messages about important questions.It's also important to bear in mind that cell phones are advancing and improving faster than ever.
Music is one big reason phones should be in school the help with a lot, Usually music has calmed many students down and soothed them from music. And that’s why phones are one of the most helpful tools in a school classroom. Phones help in class and sometimes can be a huge deal about learning should be in class to help students that are having trouble with a paper that needs research and they cant find much or they need help with it. They could use their phones too research things that you won 't find in a book. They also could watch videos that are school appropriate or look at school websites in order to find the facts they need.
The main reason teens are sent to school is, so they can get an education and eventually have a career when older; however, phones prohibit education. Bringing a phone to school is simply atrocious and unnecessary. Some may state that parents often need to get a hold of his or her daughter or son, so cell phones are helpful. But in this case, parents can call the main office. Calling the main office of the school would not disturb the child from focusing on the lesson in class.
Cell phones also connects the students to the teachers and their lessons. Cell phones can make classrooms fun and educational at the same time. Those who worry about cell phone use in schools should think about all the work that can be done by having cell phones.
Significance of the Study: This paper presents an argument and gives evidence to prove that the use of cell phones in school can lead to a student’s productivity so as to give recommendations and changes on the student’s way of studying. Phones should be used cautiously and for educational purposes only. If students are mellowed enough to know the proper purpose and use of phones, this can be one of the reason to allow cell phones in school. Students can take quizzes and tests on mobile phones. In this way, teachers can gain estimable and proper time allocation for more hours of teaching.
People are surprised to learn that cell phones can be used as an educational tool to help improve learning. Most adults think that cell phones are ruining children 's minds, but really they may be teaching children and teens. Using cell phones in classrooms might improve students’ learning and engage them to want to learn new things. Cell phones can be a big distraction, however, students should be allowed to use them in classrooms. Cell phones can be used for tests or projects, reading, and taking notes in class.
