These are the two of the many reasons why phones should be banned for the teenage generation. Students are sent to school to learn but if they have phones in their pockets they will not learn anything and will have their full attention on the little device in their pockets. Others may suggest that cell phones should not be banned since they offer a different way of studying and can also be used as a calculator in many cases; however, these phones can also help the teens cheat. Teenagers are prisoners to their phones, is that why phones are also called cell phones? As time passes, cell phones have more and more to offer this generation.
Dear Principal Warren, I think that cell phones should be banned from schools because cell phones can be stolen . As well as cell phones can be a big distraction to kids that need to focus. Also cell phones can cause emergencies to be worse. Cell phones can be stolen Imagine you are a teacher trying to teach a lesson while everyone is quiet all of a sudden a phone is missing this makes the day a whole lot harder. Parents are calling and students are freaking out.
People are prisoners of their phones, thats why they are called cell phones.” Since so many kids have mobile devices that they can use schools should allow them to use them. But if they are doing things not related to school work, then they lose their privilages and have to write a paper as a punishment. Schools should try this policy and see if it works. If it does, then teachers can do stuff online and not have to print off everything on paper and kill so many trees. This is a very hot topic in schools around the country.
First of all, cell phones should be banned in school because they provide young adults with too much screen exposure. On a blog created by the Concordia University of Portland, it discusses the pros and cons of banning phones in school. The blog called Pros and Cons of Allowing Digital Devices in the Classroom states, “There are concerns from the EPA about long-term exposure to wireless devices and computer screens.” The quote determines that cell phones in school could cause kids to have additional exposure to these dangerous screens and could result in it being harmful to teens. Additional exposure meaning the students are on their phones more than they need to and bringing their phones to school encourages that. The AAP (The American Academy of Pediatrics) says that kids from the age of 3 to 18
Cell phones can also be very distracting to the teacher, who are only trying to give an education. If one cell phone ring goes off, the entire class has an impulse to turn their heads toward the ringing, therefore turning their attention away from the teacher. Take, for instance, the recent New York Daily News survey, based around Hillcrest High School staff. 77 percent of the surveyed staff stated that there have been more negative incidents in their classroom when students are allowed to use their phone. 70 percent also claim that they have had one or more incidents involving students and their cell phones.
Although smartphones and iPhones are the most popular used device, schools should not allow them in class, or in the hallways. It could cause distraction, lower in - person conversation, and can cause cyberbullying in and out of school. In school, cell phones are quickly becoming distractions to students when used. “You’ll get kids saying ‘I’ll look something up in English, and while I’m here, let me quickly check my Instagram or Twitter feed’. And then it’s ‘Oh I never realized this girl said that to me,’ and now they’re distracted and
Many people think that cell phones should be banned because they are distracting and students are more worried about what’s going on outside of school works. If schools had banned cell phones and there was an emergency then the students would have no way to reach out to their parents about what is going on or to call for help. Also when it comes down to students phone the thing they probably cherish most they will still find a way to sneak in their phones to get on them and not get caught. So therefore we should have cell phones allowed in school. In conclusion cell phones should be allowed in school.
About 24% of kindergarten through 12th grade school have banned cell phones. 64% of schools let cell phone on school grounds, but banned from classrooms (Raths 1). Heaps schools think that cell phones are very crummy for students. Most of the time students ask their teacher if they can text their parent something or search up a definition. Teachers need to trust their students on their phones.
Pictures of tests and worksheets float around the cell phones of many students, as said in a survey put together by John Orbinger and Kent Coffey, ’21 percent of students who bring cellphones to school have video/photo capabilities on their phones (Carroll, 2004).’ Not only are cellphones are the main cause of cheating, but is also a huge source of distraction in the learning environment. This point is also stated in the previously mentioned survey ‘Cell Phones in American High Schools: A National Survey’, “cell phone use could be a significant distraction during instructional time”(Orbringer and Coffey, 5). Teachers who do not have strict cell phone policies in the classroom have to fight for the attention of their
Kaitlyn Howard Ms. Rasley ERWC Per 2 30 January 2018 In this paper i will discuss the issue of college students misusing cell phones for cheating intentions. An excessive amount of college students find the convenience of cell phones to very useful for cheating on assignments and tests. From my point of view these students are not interested in the work like they should be. If teachers personalize assignments to make it more difficult for students to cheat with cell phones. College students have constant access to cell phones which they cheat with and this leads them to mistake information for learning.
