Cell phones, while they might seem like nothing but destruction and a safety hazard for school across the country are in actually quite the opposite (Mockingbird5,2009). Teachers don't want kids’ texting in class when they're trying to teach them important things. We should not bring cell phones in class because it can affect to their listening skills, first, it destruct students from the lessons, the students will keep texting and texting because the students is addicting of cell phones and they will never understand what is the lesson about. Second, the students could cheat on test; we all know that our society is more in high technology. There is Wi-Fi’s everywhere and also there are pocket Wi-Fi’s, broad bands, and load data’s that can use in surfing the net.
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. In conclusion the “shut down your screen” week will only benefit us very much.
In schools students can use mobile phones as a social status. Students whose parents who can’t afford to buy them a latest mobile phone can be belittled and fell out of place because they simply don’t have the latest gadget. The students with the latest phones will want to pull them out at school showing their new toy off and possibly causing another student to be jealous and perhaps steal it. By not allowing mobile phones in school this can possibly take away this social status with the latest technology and help the other student who are less fortunate to fit in a bit
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.
As the percentage of teens who have a smartphone grows, so does the demand for them not to be allowed in school, as they can serve as a distraction that keeps kids from working. Although, phones may be a distraction in class, they should be allowed in the classroom, because, they can be used as a replacement for calculators and other semi-expensive utilities, they can replace pencil and paper for taking notes, and can be used to access the internet for projects like this. Cell phones should be allowed in the classroom, because they can replace the semi-expensive calculators and other utilities that schools are buying. The National Education Association reported that: ¨According to data compiled by the research firm Nielsen, 58 percent of American children from 13- to 17-years-old owned a smartphone as of July 2012.¨ As that evidence shows, in 2012, more than half of middle school to high school kids have a cell phone, and that would mean they have the calculator app that comes pre-installed on your phone. Calculators that are approved for high school math classes as of February 6th, 2018, cost around $85 dollars, and with about 25-30 kids in one math class, that equals around $2550, not including tax.
As you can see sports are taking away not only time, but also lowering grades for students. There is no arguing that with sports in the way of students learning they cannot focus on school work and in their future, instead stress out about getting their homework in the next day it can also prevent students from passing. Therefore, it is necessary that students need to learn and focus on their school work it shows better grades without school sport, it also prviteds a better future or even a better
The opposing side may feel that there are many apps that can have a huge benefit in students learning. However, according to Miriam Morgenstern, “The texting, tweeting, and Snapchatting during class time are ‘an incredible distraction, and makes it much more difficult to teach,’ she said. ‘It’s pretty hard to compete with a very funny YouTube video’” (Matchan 1) Even though some teachers find that using cell phones in the classroom is beneficial to students learning, the need that students have to be on their phone constantly makes it hard for teachers to compete with technology in order to do their jobs. If students are constantly wondering what the latest youtube video is about, how are teachers going to teach their lesson? They are going to have a very hard time doing so, and therefore cell phones in the classroom are less beneficial them most
What, you think using cellphones at school is a good idea. Now days cell phones have so many used apps and while student 's are at school they are attempting to look on their phones. Everywhere you go in this present time all you see is toddlers on up to adults with phones because they are so addicted to technology. People would rater buy new phones that the company comes out with instead of buying things that they need because they think they can survive with a cell phone. Cell phones are very helpful but so many people have took advantage of that and have become so addicted to them.
“For me the dumbest rule is that you can’t chew gum in school. For some reason, chewing gum for me gets my brain going,” Brie Larson once said. “Many schools do not allow students to chew gum in school. Teachers have differing views about whether students should be allowed to chew gum in school. Some believe that gum chewing is the nastiest habit in the world, it can impede the learning process, and gum chewing can be noisy and distracting to other students.” Others teachers make their own rules.
What if a child decides not to work on the assignment and uses their phone inappropriately when they aren 't supposed to? That is a very solid argument, it is also one of the biggest reasons why we don’t allow smart phones in the classroom. Alanis Morissette says. “Isn’t it ironic. After years of struggle between teachers and Students and the use of these smart phones in school, new educational trends are actually encouraging the use of these devices” This is another way of stating, smart phones are already a part of the school system and they aren’t going anywhere.
