Not being distracted by your cell phones or other devices, keeps you concentrated. Some people may think that phones aren’t a big deal because teachers don’t even let them use it during classes; however students can be very sneaky and use it anyways to get no work done. 75% of the students in the United States of America are distracted by their phone even when the teacher does not allow the phones to be in use during school hours. Using their phones when they are not supposed too can cause them to fail their classes since they are not paying any attention to the school work.
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
Cell phones have its pros and cons of being allowed in the school industry. Sometimes they help learn and sometimes they distract you from keeping up with the class. Schools are now allowing children to use the internet to turn in assignments and do their work online. This method has helped many students because they have all their saved work so if they ever need it again they will just have to pull it up. Although some teachers think the opposite of some, a high school teacher from Seattle Washington thought it would be a good idea to try doing things without access to their phones and found out it actually helped improve their grades. She wrote “The first day I tried it, I felt like I had traveled back to a time when students’ attention was focused in the classroom rather than on the phones under their desk.” The students
All throughout the majority of my high school career I have watched all different kinds of public service announcements. The high school system loves to incorporate these multitudes of videos to try to convey a message. As a high school student I can confidently say that neither me nor my peers can learn from or relate to these videos. In driver 's education and health class every highschooler has to watch these public service announcements on stopping distracted driving. The videos that the school provides are often completely outdated and make you wonder if the tragedy at hand actually happened to the people poorly acting in each of the videos. Although there are one or two videos out there that actually may have an impact on the viewer, the
Although Kahn is convinced that a cell phone ringing in a class will leave the surrounding students “significantly impair[ed],” one might disagree about the level to which other students even notice (197). Be assured, there have been moments during class discussions where phones have gone off and no other student has noticed. Though I agree with much of what Kahn stands for, I am not persuaded that a ringing phone leaves students with such impairment. The average student can decide the amount to which such an event will influence their attention and be able to readjust if the event skewed them off course. While a cell phone in a classroom has the potential to distract one from the material being taught, the lack thereof has helped seen an increase in grade and an increase in extra credit
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.
Distractions are everywhere in the classroom, others talking, music that 's too loud, noise from other classrooms, but the biggest distraction comes from a tiny little device, a cell phone. Teachers and staff have been debating the pros and cons to cell phone use in the classroom. Becky Dieffenbach emphasizes that, “‘[Technology] just becomes a source of distraction for
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 has always been an important tool that everyone seeks to better their lives in the future. Many see positive effects of schooling, one of which, students become more educated than they previously were.

The role of digital media in society has increased yearly since its inception. This boom in digital media has led to a generation where multitasking is very normal.

It influences how I understand by staying quiet while the teacher is teaching and by listening to what the teacher is teaching. I don't have to change my behavior towards the school because I already listen carefully to the teacher and I make sure I hear every last word that comes out of my teachers mouth so that I could be ready to start working on whatever the teacher has taught us. By doing that I shall not disrespect the teacher and I shall not act or pretend that I can do whatever I want while I am in school. My behavior in and during school is good because I always follow instructions when given to me. I make sure that right before I enter the school campus I get my brain to stop thinking about anything else but the work I am about to
First of all, one way phones can be a distraction is because of the fact that students might cyberbully each other which could potentially distract or discourage them from learning.

Everything became on tablets and laptops like books, so students will take to schools only tablets or laptops instead of carrying a bag. For example, in many schools they have stopped giving lectures in books and started using active boards because they are easier to write on. Students are obliged to study on these devices or unless they will fail their course. Education is important for each person on earth and at the same time they will achieve their goals that they have in mind. However, these devices diverts children in the classroom whether by texting or playing games. While the teacher is explaining the lecture to give, students will not focus in class if they have a cell phone in hand and using it during the session. This will reflect negatively on their studies and make the children not understand anything that is given in class (Ayas & Tarman,
