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. One reason why Students should be able to use our cell phones in class is because they can use their mobile devices to check facts and get the information they need with their smartphones or mobile devices.
Cell phones have been introduced in schools since the 1990’s and they have been banned since it has been recorded to be related to drug dealings and gangs. Some schools have allowed cell phones classroom. Now the average age of a student getting their first phone is 10.3. This raises the question: Should cell phones be allowed in school? Some may say that cell phones should be allowed in school because it can help in “classroom or to complete assignments, according to a Pew Research Center study released in February.”(Higgins).
Why being able to use phones in school should be allowed Would something nearly 92% of all americans have be a great source for help in school? Would it be bad? No, it will help many kids in school. According to Kolb, close to 70 percent of schools that had cell phone bans in place five years ago are reversing their policies. They brought it back because they thought it was a good idea to keep phones.
Did you know that out of 13-17 year olds 88 percent of them own a cellphone?? Well it’s true most kids own a cellphone because their parents need a way to contact them after school or from other events. But the thing is that some schools don’t allow the students to even bring their cellphones to school because they may cause a distraction. And even though they may cause a distraction they may also be very useful for other occasions. Students should be allowed to take their cellphones to school because most kids need to call their parents from sports or other extracurricular activities, the students live in a big city and need to contact their parents after school, and the cell phone would be helpful in case of an emergency at the school.
Well, there are many things we can do when a cell phone is found on a student. The phone will be confiscated and a phone home will be required. The child doesn 't need a cell phone; the school has one in almost every room. We are preparing for the students to a better life. If parents prepare their children for their future after school, the parents should allow the children to use good tools for the children so that they have a better life after school.
Most kids ages twelve to seventeen have cell phones, but 62% of schools don’t allow cell phones in the classroom. One day as I was walking to my class, I had my phone in my pocket, and my teacher stopped me. She told me I needed to put my phone in my locker, and I ended up being late and missed some instruction because I went and put it in my locker. Although some people may say that phones can create a distraction or be misused, the chromebooks/laptops the school provides also can be misused. The chromebooks are easy to play games on without a teacher knowing because you are supposed to be doing work on it while phones are much harder to play games on, without a teacher knowing.
Why Phones Are Important in Student’s Learning Many education officials may be surprised that something they have been keeping from students may help them. That thing is a smartphone. Most schools see cell phones as these major distractions for students who are trying to learn, but what they don’t see is the great learning potential that cell phones can offer. My three main points on why smartphones should be allowed in the classroom are as follows: First, cell phones can give students access to online articles that can teach them on stuff that they are learning in class. Second, cell phones can allow students to easily communicate with the teacher, other students, or other staff in the school.
Cellphones in Classrooms Debate Cellphones in the classroom? Why debate over that? Couldn’t we keep the same method we have used for many years? Well, you’ll find out why soon enough. People are starting to suggest that using cellphones as a tool in classrooms will lower the amount of money spent on school supplies.Since our technology is evolving so much and has already evolved in many ways; learning won’t be such a hassle.Others are suggesting that it would benefit how much a student pays attention.Others say it allows student/parent contact without any trouble.Even though cell phones are banned in many schools they can be a very useful tool.Cell phones should be allowed to be used in school because the price on school supplies would be less of an expense, and students would be more likely to participate.In some cases of emergency cell phones would be better than waiting in a line for one phone.
Have you ever considered the amount of productivity, responsibility, blocking of confusion, and the amount of satisfied office workers cell phones can make happen in schools. Well, if you are a principal cell phones could make everyday life at your schools a lot easier. ¨Using smartphones for on-the-fly research during class is a start. ¨ But a good next step is having students gather pertinent information and then learn ways to analyze the validity of their sources.¨ (centerdigitaled) About 90% of my classmates use electronic devices at home for visiting social media sites, gaming, watching videos, and more inappropriate activities. ¨ Their using this stuff anyway-let's teach them how to use it productively,¨ says Matt Cook ,an educated science and math teacher in the independent school district, near Fort Worth, Texas, knows his cell phone inside and out.
Students have become so dependent on their devices: “‘[...] low-achieving students are more likely to be distracted by the presence of mobile phones while high achievers can focus in the classroom regardless of the mobile phone policy,’ according to the study” (Tlumacki). In the classroom, students will hear or feel their phones vibrate or ring. Students will pull their phones out to see if someone needed them, but they end spending more time than they should on their electronic devices. Students can very easily become distracted by their devices and it takes their attention away from the teachers. It has been said that “[s]tudents check their phones and other digital devices in class more than 11 times a day on average, according to the survey of 675 students in 26 states” (Digital distraction in class).
