Pro: Students Should be Allowed to Use Cell Phones in Schools

I think that students should be able to use cellphones in their classrooms.
A lot of students dread coming to school, and part of that reason is that... well, it's not the most fun place to be. With the permission of cell phones being involved in our learning, students will be able to enjoy tasks.
With the option of texting, and cameras on most phones these days, students can take photos of others, texts during tests, and even look up answers.
Peter Brosan says, "As cell phones become more like mini laptop computers, they can be very useful in the classroom. For example, students can use cell phone technology to access online books, newspaper articles, and other materials. When you focus on the positive uses of cell phone technology, the possibilities are endless!
"Students can use cell phones to take pictures, text, surf the internet, and listen to music. These options can distract students during class time. According to a 2010 study by the Pew Research Center, 64% of teenagers with cell phones have texted during class. Sending texts during class are definitely a distraction. Steven Hancock, an administrator at Princeton Day School, agrees. He says, 'Cell phones have addictive qualities that will impede student engagement and learning.'"
"Many phones come equipped with cameras and video, which make teachers and administrators 'a little nervous about potentially bad things they can do,' Bullo said. 'If it were a simple phone, it would be different.'"
"For students, smartphones can combine education with cool new technology. Students can use their phones to organize their class schedule but the possibilities go far beyond simple organization. Leading companies like Apple and Sprint have developed dozens of programs for kids to use on their phones. Students can brush up on their Spanish with cell-phone translation programs. They can play math games or work on group projects via text-messaging. Many smartphones allow users to download podcasts. These podcasts can be used in all kinds of ways. A teacher could record an entire lesson and distribute it as a podcast."
