Isabella Aubuchon January 24, 2017 4th hour Cell Phones Should Be Allowed In The Classroom According to David Raths, “Twenty-four percent of K-12 schools ban cell phones altogether, and 62 percent allow phones on school grounds but ban them in the classroom.” A communication tool that has become part of our everyday lives, creating a sort of dependence, is limited or banned for most K-12 students. For a population that always has access, limiting this connection seems backwards. Cell phones have changed everyone 's life in one way or another. From how they communicate to how they learn in the classroom. Students should be allowed to use their cellphones in class because it would cut down money spent on computers, allow students to use
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.
If there just happens to be an emergency at school for instance like a school threat or school shooting , cell phones could help students connect to their worried parents.

Will Ellis Are you always on your phone? Either Snapchatting, on Instagram, scrolling through your twitter feed? It can be pretty temping to pick up your phone and do this stuff in class but you can use them in good ways in school. George Washington Middle School currently has cell phones banned in class. Although most teachers think that cell phones are a distraction, cell phones should be allowed in class because students feel anxious without their phones, there are many educational uses, and allowing phones is more convenient.
Hmm, phones in the classroom! What do you think? That is a debate between billions of people in the world today. Children all over the world have phones, but they can not have them out during school hours. Cell phones are important to so many kids and adults. These devices have been around for so long, and many people can not live without them. All around the school campus, students are miserable without their phones. In the world today, about three-fourths of the U.S. population have phones. A cell phone is an important thing to some people. Without cell phones, kids wouldn't have access to their social media accounts like Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more. So take this into consideration, even if it is in one class, students should be allowed to get on their cell phones during school hours.
Cell phones should not be allowed in school. There are many reasons why cell phones and cell phone use are a detriment to learning. These reasons include the following: cell phones can negatively affect social well-being, they can interfere with academics, and they can enable harassment and cyber-bullying inside and outside of school. As a result, schools should not allow cell phone use on their campuses.
The debate on whether schools should allow cell phones has been around since cell phones were introduced to the public. This debate has two strongly supported point of views. The nay-sayers agree that cell phones are a big distraction to students and prevent them from doing work. For this reason, some schools have a no cell phone policy. However, people who agree to having cell phones in the classroom have an even stronger point of view. They believe that cellphones help students be more productive, and even stay safe. Those two reasons alone put having cell phones in the classroom above not having them. Cell phones should be allowed in classrooms because they help with the learning environment, provide easy access to the internet, and can be used as a way of communication or identification in case of an emergency.
I think cell phones should be aloud at school because of emergencies and when you need to get ahold of someone you have a cell phone. They can be used for certain things in school and they could be able to use them for looking up things. When something happens to you, you can contact your parents.

If your are allowed a cell phone in school and you get caught doing something you shouldn't, you could get in trouble. If cell phones weren't allowed in school there wouldn't be problems over the phone. If you have a phone in class it is a distraction from your learning. If your were a teacher would you want your students to have phones. Students would be on their phone while they should be doing homework. As students we go to school for seven hours. In those seven hours there is no reason they need to be on there phone. School is for learning, not looking at a phone.
Many teachers believe that cell phones don’t belong in a classroom because there are several disadvantages. An example maybe a student who uses a cell phone in class has no intension in listening or paying attention to the teacher. This student has a short attention span who cares about socializing more than his/her education. Cell phones can be very disruptive; they can invade people’s privacy and can also be used as harassment or bullying. The usage of cell phones is creating a huge problem particularly when they are used in school.
Most schools now allow students to have cell phones but ask them to be turned off during class because they can be disruptive and distracting. Read on for the pros and cons of allowing cell
Cell phones can provide many benefits to students in education, inside and outside of the classroom. Cell phones would give opportunities for students to use apps that provide tools that schools would otherwise have to buy, like calculators. Plus the provided camera in cell phones would also allow students to take pictures of needed papers for homework or at home assignments. Furthermore students would also be able to study on their cell phones. For example, instead of making flashcards for vocabulary words,
There is no valid reason for students to be using cell phones in class. If a student is using a cell phone in class, they are either distracting others, ignoring the lessons, cheating, or simply side tracked. It’s also very disrespectful to the teacher, who most likely doesn’t get paid enough, to teach things that we need to know for later in life, even though it may seem like we need to know as much as they try to cram in our heads. Cell phones are bad to use in class because even if you have it on vibrate or silent you can still distract people by laughing at the text messages you get or by asking someone a question if you don’t know how to spell something. You can also distract the teacher by doing this because the teacher might tell you to put it away and having to do that repeatedly causes the teacher to stop teaching just to tell you to stop using the phone and that’s valuable time when you can be learning something.
