Why Cell Phones Should Not Be Allowed In Schools
Almost any parent today can use a cell phone to find out about the location, job, or health of their child. Most parents and caregivers remember the time before the advent of cellphones. Kids were left to their own devices for at least a half-day. I understand that cell phones are an enormous distraction to children, particularly the higher-quality ones, and they should not be used in school.
The main reason that cellphones should not be allowed in school is because they are disruptive to the educational process. Cheating on tests or other tests can be the most visible sign. Students may use electronic books or messaging applications to communicate with their peers directly from the class. The distraction of teachers and students by games, approaching messages, or phone rings can disrupt the educational process. Even if the phone is set to silent, its vibration will still distract students. As technology advances, smart phone users can check their online profiles for informal organizations and surf the Internet. Even though messaging is very popular among young people, it can be even more attractive when the student’s mind is wandering and they are not paying attention to what you say.
Cyberbullying is an unusual phenomenon that occurs when students use their cellphones. In schools, cell phones are increasingly being used to take and share unseemly photos, such as pictures of understudies squabbling in the bathrooms, images of the interior of storage rooms, and recordings of actual and organized fights among understudies. There were also instances where ‘disposables’ phones that were purchased in advance were used by students to alert them of bomb threats.
The use of cellphones during class should be limited, despite the fact they are vital for students to have in order to protect themselves. This is because of a number of reasons: disrupting the teaching process, encouraging cheating by students, and diverting them to the Internet to chat with friends or access web-based social media.
