" The Use Of Mobile Phone By Student In School Should Encourage"
Debate Rounds (3)
THE USE OF MOBILE PHONE IN SCHOOL BY STUDENTS SHOULD ENCOURAGED.I speak against the motion that mobile phone shouldn't be encourage in school by students.
A mobile phone is a wireless handheld device
that allows users to make calls and send text
messages, among other features .
To set the ball rolling,
I would like to note that I am not arguing
against faculty, teachers, or staff having or using
cellphones, if the need arises, nor against
students possessing cellphones in their lockers
for use after hours or in emergencies.
All key words are assumed to have their normal
Cellphones distract students from the
Given the the purpose of school is to educate
the students, anything that disrupts learning is
Most cellphones are capable
of sending and receiving text messages; most
phones have games on them. Smartphones are
mini gaming consoles, with thousands of games
available to download. Most cellphones now
double as mp3 players, allowing students to
take their music into class with them and listen
I hope that I don't have to establish the
widespread use of cellphones in class, sending
texts, playing games, looking up answers,
listening to music. It is common knowledge that
these practices are ubiquitous. The quality of
the education that these students are ignoring
is not the question here; the point is that by
engaging in these other activities the students
are missing out on their main opportunity to
gain a good education.
I you are caught on your phone when its not been instigated by teachers you will have it removed and spend the rest of the day in solitary.
You have to register your owning of your phone so the school can keep track of who has one and who does not.
You must hand your phone to the teacher at the start of the lesson and if they decide to use the app you will then be able to access it.
This app would be designed to motivate students to want to improve and learn.
It brings about Dishonesty"The same technology that makes
cell phones distracting also makes cheating
much easier for students. They can take
pictures of tests, text questions and answers,
or even access notes and textbooks through
their cell phones. Cell phones are so small
these days, and students are so adept at
using them surreptitiously that detecting their
use is increasingly difficult.
Disrespect "The issues of cyber-bullying,
sexting, and other forms of serious misconduct
are increasingly common and easier to conceal
with cell phone technology. Cell phones in
the hands of problem students just make the
problems harder to discern and harder to
handle. Some argue that the teen angst
common in that age group is exacerbated with
cell phone use: everything from gossip to
sexuality becomes a bigger issue when cell
phones are involved.
