Traditions have been around for years, some being passed down from generation to generation while others are fairly new. Traditions explain why people act certain ways or why certain events happen. From academics, to cultures, to life, people follow their traditions because that is what they have always learned to do, reluctant to change the ways they have always lived. Many are scared of change, especially in traditions that have been around for so long, but changing traditional ways is inevitable because life is always changing. In “Project Classroom Makeover,” the author Cathy Davidson strongly supports changing the traditional education system because it is not keeping up with how modern students learn, with all these advances in technology
Do you think kids should have cellphones in school? Yes, they do need cellphones in school. one main reason is that cellphones are good for education, safety, and emergencies. That are made for children and adults to use for everyday life. Cell Phones are good for research because if there is something to research in class they can do it so they can know what the meaning of something is or to research something for a homework assignment or a project.
Gutting and Edmundson both blame the structure of the education system, but at the same time it sounds like the change needs to come only from students. In their book I wouldn’t always be their “ideal” student that is depending on the classes they would teach me. Like Gutting said colleges sometimes give unnecessary courses, so it can be hard to be interested in something that in no way relates to your major. If one of the authors were instructors in one of my unnecessary” classes they probably would make comments that I’m “weak minded” or “not genius”. However, if they taught in one of my classes that I actually have an interest in I might have a shot of being their perfect student they have conversations about on the
In Gerald Graff’s article “Hidden Intellectualism,” from the 2003 copy of They Say I Say, the author explores the idea of what true intellectualism is by recalling pieces of his childhood. The way schools and society view intellectualism comes in to questions as being one sided or false altogether . There remain several sides to the argument regarding education and include anything regarding what should be taught, how it should be taught, and what marks the mastering of a subject. With true education as well as the proper way to teach being a heavily debated topic of controversy, the question of the right way to teach is heavily sought after.
The rivalry between students who believe they should be able to use their cell phones in class and teachers who believe them to be disrespectful has caused a ripple effect that now bleeds through many classrooms roaring its controversial head. And here we are stuck in an ongoing battle seldom won by students. The position that students should not be able to misuse their cell phones in a classroom setting is one held by the author of “Today 's Lesson: Life in the Classroom Before Cellphones” Louise Katz, who believes that “those halcyon days” were over (Katz). Likewise, Zoya Kahn, the author of “Why Cell Phones Do Not Belong In The Classroom” has a similar stance on the topic, Kahn states that “it is in everyone’s interest for instructors to
Our educational system is failing us. The United States of America is supposed to be the “greatest” country in the world but statistics are showing that our government/educational system is failing us; children/young adults of the nation. Being a student of a middle ranked school in Arizona, I personally have had a first-hand feel for how good and/or bad teaching affects students. Just in high school I have had teachers that would just assign websites as our lesson and even teachers that sit at their desk for the whole hour; don’t even go over the mindset, homework, and maybe only show one problem so that we’ll know what the homework will be like. Until sophomore year I didn’t even know the differences between you’re, your, too, and to. Even
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.
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
Education is very important for everyone and it will only get more important. Schooling is just plain bad. It used to serve a purpose, like the heart in a person 's body, but now it is basically just boring students more and more. Nowadays at the end of the day, we all just want to go home. Many aspects of public education are problematic. For example, the usefulness in grading systems (other than IB schools) are questionable. It cages up creativity and makes the students unmotivated. Also many times the grading system is just wrong. When students write something and give it to the teacher to grade sometimes they can get a horrible grade. That is surprising for the students because it’s like they think its good and that they’re going to get a good grade where in reality they get a horrible one. As Picasso once said, “ All children are born artists, the problem is to remain an artist as they grow up." Children are not frightened of being wrong. Being wrong isn’t the same thing as being creative at all. If you 're not prepared for being wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.By the time we get to be adults, most kids have lost that. The kids ( now adults) have
Technology is everywhere. In people’s homes, public areas, and in teenagers’ hands. Cell phones have become a part of teenagers’ lives and cannot be taken away. As technology evolves, consequently, teenagers feel the need to have the latest phones to “fit in” or feels pressured into having one. Students bring their cell phones everywhere with them, including school where notifications or ringing disrupts in class. Cell phones be a helpful source of information and communication. However, cell phones in school and in classrooms cause many problems. Schools should ban cell phones because it is too much exposure, it is disruptive, and students can cheat easily with the use of technology.
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)
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.
There are some arguments against using cell phones during class hours. Cell phones are very unstoppable to the students and it should not be use to them inside the classroom. What can we do? 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. By the time, their children enter to their professions; time comes that they need to use even more mobile
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.
