  • I think cell phones should be used in class.

    What is the number one thing kids want today? A cell phone! And it is very helpful. What happens if your parents forget to pick you up? You can call them if you had a cell phone. Also they can help you study with a app or search things up. Cell phones are very useful. Think about it.

  • Cell phones Should be in classrooms

    Students should have phones in classrooms because about their parents needed to remind them something important or if the student feels sick or something. They should at least have their cell phone in silenced or off during class. They should at least fallow school rules or they could get their phone confiscated.

  • It's the student's responsibility

    As a teacher, I have a policy which has been extremely successful. At the beginning of a semester, I have every student sign up for cell phone use. I have a sheet that has
    -student name
    -type of phone/ case (I also make them report if they get a new phone/case)
    -a signature

    During class, if notes are being taken, it's the students responsibility if they want to pay attention, or if they want to be on twitter. I honestly don't care if you snapchat your best friend or are watching netflix with headphones after you finish your work. As long as you're not distracting any one else then I'm fine with it. I check around about 3 times the class and make sure that the students that are on phones are the ones that signed up. This way, when there is a test or quiz, I can call off names and check to make sure its the correct phone. I then place the phone in a bucket with their name on it. After the assessment has been collected I pass back out the phones. I honestly have not found that a student would pass up access to their phones in order to cheat on one test.
    In college, students can do whatever they want, so its better that they learn now how to be responsible. Most are never really on it! Its worked out extremely well!!

  • Phones should be allowed

    Phones are powerful tools that can be used for good or bad. Like scissors, you can stab someone, or cut out a beautiful snowflake. Many students at first may misuse the ability to use their phones, but what is fun about doing something that is allowed? Phones are powerful tools that could be used for a greater purpose

  • Phones can be used as educational tools

    A cell phone can be used as a distracted from work, but they can also be used as a replacement for books. If somebody needs to find out information to contribute to a class discussion they can google it. If a student doesn't have a dictionary on hand, they can use their phone to look up a word. If a student needs to write down an assignment, They can use their phone to do it. If someone is bored in class, they'll find a replacement distraction from their phone(like a calculator with games ,or doodling),so there is really no point in banning them. Phones have a potential to be abused in classes, but can also be used as educational tools.

  • Cell phones should not be allowed in school because of cheating

    Cell phones should not be allowed in school because everyone is going to pass their exams and tests by using their phones. They can take a picture of the answers, text a friend asking for help, using a calculator, and looking up answers on the internet. And when they pass all the tests they will not be able to find a job because they don't know anything

  • Students should not bring their phones to class

    Students should be prohibited from bringing their phones to class so as to keep the teacher from having to police the use and hidden use of the phone during class. Students often do not have the ability or desire to pay attention in class and having their phone available to play around with would be just one more distraction.

  • No Phones in Class

    No, students should not be allowed to bring phones to class. Bringing phones to class can cause many distractions for students. First, students may use their phones to text one another during class, much akin to passing notes. Second, if a student forgets to turn his or her ringer off, a ringing phone can cause a major distraction.

  • In case of emergency

    These days, most students bring their cell phones to class, regardless. Especially in college. That being said, I really don't see a huge issue with this, as long as they are not constantly doodling on the phone or texting their friends or partner during class. They are good for emergencies.

  • No, phones shouldn't be allowed in schools.

    Phones shouldn't be allowed in schools, or in the classroom. One reason is that they're very disruptive to the class experience. Another reason is that students have been known to use phones (such as smart phones) to cheat, with various things like putting the answers on them or using the calculator function. There's no good reason that phones would need to be present in the classroom.

  • Students should not be allowed to bring phones to class.

    Students should not be allowed to bring phones to class. Cell phones in classrooms are just a bad idea because they are nothing but a distraction to the student and everyone around them. I think teachers have a hard enough time trying to teach today so lets not add something else for them to have to monitor.

  • Students should not be allowed to bring phones to class.

    Students should pay attention to their teacher and not have the opportunity to play on their phones. Modern cell phones have too many distracting features like games, web browsers, and chat programs. It is too much of a temptation for kids to have phones in class. If there is an emergency, and their parents needs to contact them, a school administrator can do it. There is no need for kids to have phones in class.

  • Cell phones should not be allowed in classrooms.

    One of the biggest challenges teachers face today is cell phones. Too many students take their cell phones to class and spend more time focusing on what is happening on the phone than what is happening in the classroom. By removing cell phones completely from the classroom, the temptation to focus on them is removed as well.
