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
In “The Use and Abuse of Cell Phones and Text Messaging in the Classroom: A Survey of College Students,” written by Deborah Tindell and Robert Bohlander, the authors suggest that student cell phone usage is a widespread issue in the college classroom. They support this argument by citing the results of other researchers, as well as including the findings of their own survey. They do this in order to better understand how cell phone use is being abused in classrooms, and to gain information for changing classroom policies on this matter. The writing was most likely intended for an audience concerned with the amount of cell phone usage in educational institutions.
70 percent of schools that had bans on phone usage in schools five years ago have since reversed those bans. Including the largest school district in the United States, the New York City School District. Cell phones have been integrated into our modern world and our everyday lives over the past decade, and now cell phones are seen as a necessity for many students and teachers. Cell phones provide many learning and collaborative opportunities for students as well as a way to communicate with parents or authorities in emergency situations. Although cell phones can be distracting in a learning environment, they allow the students, teachers, and schools to take advantage of new technology as a resource for communication and innovation.
The average teenager goes on their phone about 80 times a day (Gregoire). In other words, kids like to use their phones. Why not let the students use it in class to help them get an education. Schools suggest that cell phones are a distraction and will be used for socializing. This is why most schools in the U.S. don’t permit cell phone usage in class. Cell phones in class can be quite helpful for students to get quick facts and for teachers to easily grade assignments. Although cell phones aren’t allowed in school, schools should permit students to be able to use their phones in class for educational purposes.
Most kids want to transport their phones to school. A common thing kids say is “ The teacher allows it though.’’ Students and some teachers don’t know that cell phones in the classroom is unsatisfactory. Reasons for this are, it is a distraction, can be disguised as a gun, and can be used for cheating. Students should definitely not bring their phones to school. 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.
Cell phones aren 't only used for being on social media and distracting kids, nowadays, there are many other benefits when it comes to use of electronics. Cell phones should be allowed in school not only because a study shows it makes students happy, according to a study conducted in 2005, Sonja Lyubomirsky, Laura King, and Ed Diener found that happiness causes success, but also as an aid, in case of an emergency, and for easier communication skills.
Of course, the teacher does not have total control over each student, there are means by which an instructor can yield the results she/he is looking for. Although our authors both bring up strong points about the use of cell phones in classrooms, they sometimes overstated the degree to which they are disruptive. The authors also give a good idea as to how the reduction of cell phone use would help classrooms become better learning environments with more respect for instructors and peers and how one’s grades have the possibility of improving once their cell phones have been put away. If purely stating these ideas to students would not help the students use their phones less, then incentives or penalizations can be offered by the instructor to make such a problem
Seeing a kid in class with their phone out, your first instinct will be telling them to put it away. Although cell phones can be a distraction and used for entertainment purposes they could be used for so much more. Phones should be allowed in classrooms to use as a learning tool, it will help students organize their work, and is cheaper than buying more technology. As you may know, schools are strict on their no phones in class rule. They believe that having phones in class will cause problems like phones going off, taking pictures, texting, and not paying attention to the teachers.
Even though banning cell phones reduce distractions in the classroom, phones should be allowed in the classroom, but restricted to school work because it offers more learning opportunities and gets kids excited about learning. By researching for this paper I have learned the benefits and the negative effects of technology, both in the classroom and in the outside world. Through this research I have also learned about the different technologies that have been developed to keep distractions down in the
The game is changing. Are students changing with it or being left behind? The game is beginning to change by little kids no older than 10 or 12. According to a study in 2012 presented in Alice Armstrong’s Technology in the Classroom: It’s Not a Matter of ‘If,’ but ‘When’ and ‘how’ one out of three middle school students use their phones for homework. The article “Technology in the Classroom: It 's Not a Matter of ‘If’, but ‘When’ and ‘How’ by Alice Armstrong suggests that students have a better chance to go into a STEMM class when using technology for class. One can better understand the issue of technology in the classroom through looking at “The School Bell Isn 't the Only Thing Ringing” from American Teacher, “Technology in the Classroom: It 's Not a Matter of ‘If’, but ‘When’ and ‘How’” by Alice Armstrong and “Cell Phones as Instructional Tools” by Kipp D. Rogers.
Despite the fact that cell phones may be used for educational purposes, phones should still be banned from schools due to texting and posting, cyberbullying, and a use for non - educational purposes. As a student, I am faced with the problem, “No Cell Phones in Classrooms”. Many students like to bring their cellphones in class. The one problem however is, “What are you doing with your phone?” You could be doing anything you want with that phone which is the one problem with having it with you in the first place. You could be texting someone, or playing games. “Who knows”. However, I will be sharing some of the biggest problems of having a phone with you in class and how to solve them.
Cell phones being in school is a hotly debated issue nowadays. With all the teenagers having cell phones now the issue of them in school seems to be bigger than it has ever been. Many people think that they are beneficial while others say they distract kids. Research and statistics show that phones prevent more than help kids to learn. Cell phones should be banned in school because they prevent learning, encourage cheating and pose health risks to students that use them.
“Over the twentieth century, researchers have found that cellular phones has become a part of the lives of billions of people and has grown into one of the most important technological advancement the world has ever noticed. They were first introduced on the July 17th, 1946 to the United Stated States of America and at that time scientists worked vigorously night and day to come up with means of making communication global and wireless” (Researchomatic, 2013-2015). However, despite the cell phone’s numerous beneficial factors, it also causes negative interferences in the classroom environment, even at the University level. Therefore, I do agree that cell phones should be banned in the classroom at a University level. The nature of this research
Do cell phones in class actually have such a huge impact on learning as educators say they do? Is it really relevant to ban cell phones at school? Do we really have to ban something which was already part of the school system? A simple answer to all of those questions is no. Although some schools don’t think cell phone usage should be allowed in a classroom. Students should be able to use their cell phones in class because they can use them to check facts, you can do assignments on them, and parent to student contact would be much easier.
New modern life circled with technology gadgets. Technology has been progressing quickly which has become an important part in our lives which is harmful for our body. Many people have been using these stuff to communicate with each other, play games, listen to music, or discover a new culture. However, it may also have some positive impact in which it can help students in their daily life to get some information out of the internet to solve their homework or other things. For example, adults use these instruments at work and students at school. These kind of devices can catch a child easily to get addicted to them. Whereas, it influences people and especially children in many good and bad ways. Technology devices have many bad impacts on all people in different ages and in many fields.
