Should Cell phones be allowed in the classroom?
BAD: Today many people are addicted to their phones in fact about 60% of college students consider themselves to have a cell phone addiction. Although cell phones allow individuals to have unlimited access to information and to connect with others, there are many harmful and disturbing effects of smartphone dependence. Cell phone addiction, sometimes referred to as problematic mobile phone use, is a behavioral addiction thought to be similar to that of an internet,gambling, shopping, or video game addiction and leads to severe impairment or distress in one’s life.Cell phones can also distract a kid and keep them from learning in the classroom which will lead to failing grades.
GOOD:But... cell phones,the internet and other helpful apps can help increase your learning in the classroom.It's not like the olden days where you had to asks someone what a word meant or look in a book to study something when the answer is at your fingertips.It can also be a device where you can read from or search up a project and can help you study for a test and in emergency's you can call someone for help.As long as you don't use it the whole time while the teacher is talking,then it's a problem.I think the only rule against phones should be not to abuse of the privilege or start sending messages and watch videos.Cell phones can also help a student prepare for a real world job,can teach responsibility,and keep students happy.
