Also if your parents need to contact you. Like for example, if their is a death in your family and then need to reach you quickly, then that phone will be a big help.

Teachers began to worry about cheating and disruptions from phones in class. However, having phones in class benefits students because students are able to contact parents in an emergency, schools don 't have enough computers for each student, and using phones for reminders and notes. Phones in school are important for when there are emergencies in school. One reason I believe this, is the Florida shooting that happened
Kids can use phones in school while there are in class because if they forgot a calculator at home they can use their device and use the calculator on there. Kids can also call there parents if they forget something at there house that they need to bring to school. A Lot of our teachers in school don’t want us to use and have cell phones in school because it can create a big distraction to the teacher and the whole entire class. But
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. This could also affect how students react to something.
Teachers also have a hard time teaching when a cell phone is constantly interrupting the class. The effect of this are students and teachers will not be able to continue on working lesson plans. The Results of this is kids falling behind on subjects and performing worse than schools who ban phones. Many things don’t go vigorous or as planned because phones constantly go off during class. Another reason, phones should be prohibited at school is that they are extremely harmful and dangerous.
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.
Like for example, if there is a death in your family and then need to reach you quickly, then that phone will be a big help. Another emergency, that can happen that you would need your phone, is that if your at school and you are ready for any kind of sports practice and suddenly it is cancelled, and you find out before school ends, and you need to contact your parent.
In the opposing view of having phones in school, people say it’s not necessary to have phones in class or it’s a distraction. Stating in the article, “ Safety Concerns Have Some States Rethinking Bans on Cell Phones in School,” it mentions that technology has changed so it is not disruptive in class. It also explains that “ Wireless devices should not be visible and are not to be activated during school hours. However, for safety reasons, students may possess wireless devices before and/or after-school activities”. Some people of the opposing view believe that cell phones are not vital to students ' learning, they either think that it’ll cause more learning problems or that it 's taking us away from our learning.
Does having your phone with you actually help you focus? Do they only disconcert the people around you? Should phones even be allowed in classrooms? The problem with kids having their phones in class is that when they are on them if they make any noise it distracts the people around them. They are also very disrespectful to the teacher because you aren’t even trying to give them your full attention and not making eye contact, eye contact is a key part of them knowing that you understand what they are teaching.
Although this may be true, they aren’t very concrete opinions, teachers have phones in the classroom and in the main office so important calls wouldn’t be a problem, students may not be engaged in the lesson but rather their social lives and other applications. The preparation for the future would just be simply not using it at work, school or at inappropriate times. Furthermore, It would be utter chaos if phones were allowed in the classroom. Fights would be more common, It makes students less social and provides unfair opportunities. Alana Harvey, author or the article “Should Phones Be Allowed In The Classroom?
