If we fail in the education industry to use the powers of the cell phone, we are missing out and may ultimately lose our students.
When students can be more efficient and convenient on their own, they will eventually go to online schools anyway.
Just off the top of my head: Cell phones used for cheating (looking up answers) Safety issues on stairs (students not paying attention) Is emergency communication for every individual student necessary Attention problems in class (texting or browsing instead of listening) Ringing phones disrupting or interrupting presentations, speakers, and meetings Same policy for studants teachers, or just students Leeway for medical issues (insulin shots, asthma, seizures) Any one of these would make a great essay.
Just remember to state your thesis clearly and then argue your points with facts instead of opinion.
Teachers can include cell phones and other portable technology in the classroom to aid their instruction.
In fact, cell phones, which are now endlessly versatile, can be an excellent teaching resource for many reasons: It be innocent, on purpose, or the result of boredom, but an action taken on a cell phone can result in serious consequences.
Cell phones can be positive teaching tools, but they can also be detrimental to the environment in the classroom.
While they can save a life, they can also destroy one.
Cell phones are everywhere and have undeniably become an integral part of everyday life.
Everyone from teens to seniors seems to have one on their person — even toddlers know how to use them for games and entertainment!
