Tap Tap, Tap. Students are constantly using cellphones in class when they should be paying attention to important materials in class. Some schools have banned cell phones. Some schools are taking advantage of cell phones and trying to them to open new possibilities for new learning experience. A cell phone is a piece of technology that can have a positive and negative effect. For example you can use it find out what you need to study. It depends on the user. Cell phones can also be used to cheat and then you wouldn’t be learning anything, except how to cheat. Do you really think that we should allow these with children that don’t know how to use them correctly? I wouldn’t. Although cell phones can open new opportunities to learning, we can not assume that students will use them for academic reasons. Therefore, cell phones are not the best thing to have in school, they shouldn't be allowed in school to ensure a good environment for the future generations of mankind. The negative effects from cell phones can distract kids from the subject they are learning in school, reduce the amount of respect students show teachers, and make schools less empathetic. The only thing that schools will get from allowing cellphones in class is nothing but trouble.
Students shouldn’t be allowed to have phones in school because students can easily use them to cheat on tests and quizzes. According to U.S. News “More than one third of teens with cell phones admit to having stored information on them to look at during a test or texting friends about answers.” (Miners, “More than”). Many people already use phones to cheat now even when phones aren’t allowed, so allowing phones to be present in the classroom will give students easier opportunities to cheat. Cheating is also unfair to the students who study and work hard to make grades. So phones not being allowed in classrooms is a better choice so students will study and learn instead of just cheating using their phone.
I firmly believe in banning cellphones in schools because of how much distraction they cause. I believe that people will be driven to join my side because source 5 explains how sometimes, “ some students use their cellphones for bullying and insulting each other, which can cause students to commit suicide.” Now, if anyone wants to do something about the cell phone distractions you can give a speech at school or write a petition to the office recommending that cell phones be
The world is a global village where technologies dominate in people’s lives, particularly that of the millennials. Whether cell phones should be allowed in high school is a heating debate, with both positive and negative effects on the young people. Despite the advantages of mobile phone usage in high school, the demerits seem to overdo the merits. It is, therefore, the role of the government to enforce governing rules and regulations regarding the use of phones in educational institutions where the parents and teachers should ensure that the students strictly follow the given guidelines and if the latter fail to do so, the punishment is provided.
People and their families are trying to stop teens from constantly using technology, and to spend more time with their families. Apps and being made for parents to shut their child’s phone off at a certain time. This gives kids a chance to go outside and do activities with others physically, There are also products that are being sold to spend more family time. For example, the EB Brand Cell Lock Up is a product in which phones go into a jail-like box that locks and does not open for a certain amount of time that can be set. This is useful for dinner time, family game night, etc. Parents are also trying to fix the addiction problem themselves. Some parents make plans or rules for them and their children to obey. One popular rule that many parents are attempting is no phones can be used until after dinner and all homework is complete (besides the homework
believes the rules and boundaries parents set for their children when they get their first cell phone might be helpful in heading off any addictions later on.” (Kelly Wallace, CNN). In addition, I can say that rules regarding usage of the electronic devices are truly required, because teens are diving into an imaginary world, and they forget about the real values: family, love, joy. Internet can’t supply these goods and people should begin to understand this risk of wasting the
Smartphones have made enormous impacts on the entire planet, some of those impacts were good, others were not. Many adults today see smartphones as something that has crippled teenagers around the world, while the younger generation thinks otherwise. In my opinion, smartphones have done more harm than people realize. Smartphones could be harming children in their abilities to obtain a proper education and to make proper decisions.
In the article, “OMG Teens and Their Phones” by Bob Ross, he discusses a survey that shows on average everyday teens send about one text message every five minutes. Throughout this article Ross discusses the question of whether the use of technology is being abused by kids today and the answer is yes, but only if the parents let it happen. Parents cannot be ignorant about what their child is using technology for, they need to understand the technology their child is using and they also need to create rules about the use of technology so teens do not abuse their power of it. Ross explains how it is important for parents to set guidelines and rules that are reasonable for themselves and their child’s needs so they are more willing to follow them. To make sure that teens are not abusing their technology it is important for parents to encourage technology free time. It is important for a child to learn when the appropriate time is to use technology and when they should not, for example when they are in class or when they are doing homework. Another suggestion that Ross makes is for parents to check phone bills to make sure that their child is following their guidelines. On the phone bill a parent can see what times their child is texting and the other person who they are texting. If a parent sees that their child is not following their guidelines then they can always disable their phone during a certain
In the movie WALL-E, everyone had been so consumed by technology that they rode around on floating chairs sipping slushies and watching screens. When someone fell out of their chair, robots would come help them and all the other chairs would be detoured around them. As glued to screens as teens are now, it seems at least a bit likely that humanity could end up like that. they think that they need their devices all the time, so when issues occur, they will probably look for a way around it, like riding in chairs with a screen mounted at just the right level so the neck does not have to be bent. Avoiding a world like in WALL-E is not the only reason why teens should have limited smartphone use. People under the age of 18 should be banned from smartphones because
People all around the world have many electronic devices, and there are abundant amounts of freedom that come with them. There are so many different technologies to choose from, but one that seems to be quite common among people of all ages, are cell phones. Such technology is great for many uses, but it is not always appropriate in certain settings. The principal at my school has adopted a new policy that bans the use of cell phones during school hours. I support my principal’s decision. Cell phones can be distractions in many ways to students during school. They can cause conflicts between fellow students and between students and teachers. Allowing cell phones during school hours also basically gives students permission to not pay
I feel that this is a relevant issue in this society. Most teens like me are born in a society that is used to electronic devices. Kids that are younger than me are definitely given some sort of device sice they are young. I think some teens are too adicted to their phone. As I read through the article, I noteced the article is dedicated to the fact that teens spend too much time on their phone. I agree with that, but I also think being accicted to a phone is normal. There is a quote in the article by the digital detox expert Holland Hails saying, "Technological addiction can happen to anyone," in her book, she even discribed technology as, "the new 21st century addiction." I strongly agree with these quotes indicating that an technological
It seems like every kid today has a cell phone or IPod glued to their little hands, myself and my kids included. I honestly hate it. Everyone is always looking down to see what’s going on in a world that’s right in front of them. I have to set rules in my house to limit the amount of time my kids can be on them. They would rather spend hours on their devices, and ignore a beautiful day. Sometimes I have to force them to go outside and ride their bikes, or anything that does not have to do with a device that connects to the internet. I have even had to unplug our Wi-Fi to help with this issue. There’s more to life then cell phones and I pods. People, myself included, need to learn to put those objects down and enjoy the wonderful world around us. There is no App for how to live your life. We shouldn’t have to rely on an App to tell us which restaurant we should eat at, who we should be dating, or how to raise our kids. These are things we should know; and if we don’t, ask another human, not a machine. Life is about making your own choices and mistakes. Whether they are good or bad depends on you’re own judgement, not a phone that has enough technology to send a rocket into
Many places in society are setting policies on digital device. The principal at my school has also set policies on banning cell phones in school. Students should not be permitted to use cell phones in school. Using cell phones during school allows students to cheat. Students will be more distracted by cell phones and pay less attention to the teacher and to the lesson. Students have a higher chance of getting in trouble if they use cell phones in school rather than if they are not allowed to use digital devices in school.
Firstly, through implementing some campus rules and some technological means, the negative impresses of using mobile phones will be eliminated properly. Why people think that mobile phones should be banned in school? The reasons are that using mobile in
A second argument is that, do children those that are under age of 10 necessarily have to own a device? How is it even right for children to use electronics at their age? Whenever am outside and when I pass by kids using electronics, their little fingers tapping on that pricey miniature screen instead of holding the hands of their parents or whoever else is accompanying them. But now, many kids ignore us and focus on their electronics, and this is not fair. About an hour or two is fine for them. But what I had realize when am in parties is that their parents give their little kids electronics so the adults can have fun and drink. This is the argument that I trip about because you shouldn’t give a kid an electronic instead you should take your kids to the park or something, keep them distracted from an electronic that can ruin their vision. Another thing that I realize is that half of you parents don’t check what your kids are doing and watching. Well this phone issue basically goes for everyone. But since kids are vulnerable and easily influenced they
