phones in class
Debate Rounds (3)
all the textbooks that you need for school. phones are not for in classes
The point I am trying to make here is that when the school internet is down, they can turn to their phones to complete an assignment.
Their phones run on cellular network, not school network.
Now about students using their cell phones in class, if they become a distraction to them, that is the student's fault.
If they become a distraction to other students, then they can be accordingly punished.
If they do not learn anything, when the teacher is teaching correctly, then that is also the student's fault.
We shouldn't take away these privileges for the students that will use the technology correctly.

Reasons for voting decision: Convincing Argument: Con failed to understand what Pro's point was in R2, so Pro's point is valid. I will note that this situation almost never occurs. That being said, one benefit of having the phone with you is that a student can look up a term they don't know in real-time, and this then can be shared with the class or so they can understand the lecture better. This is if the phone is used properly. That being said, the improper uses should be made aware of and explicit to the student (i.e. unreasonably texting in class, phone isn't on silent). Maybe the phone could be placed on the desk for the sake of transparency.
