Transcript of Should Cellphones Be Allowed In School

"Some schools have no Internet access and as such they would use the device for learning purposes. We are part of the global technological world and embrace the use of information and communication technology in learning,"
No internet access? That's alright because students can use cellphones as an alternative source in finding information.
(John Ekongo)
"Although cellphones are not allowed in classrooms, learners are allowed to have them [on their person] and they can use them during breaks," says a teacher at a Windhoek private school.
Cellphones can be used for students when they have a free period like Study Hall and Lunch.
(John Ekongo)
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!
Cell phones might be smarter for the classroom than you think! Schools should allow students to carry cell phones because, if managed properly, the phones can enhance learning and become valuable teaching tools, while keeping students safe and in contact with their parents.
All students should be allowed to carry cellphones to school because they can increase education and become valuable tools.
(Peter Brosnan and Akash Bagaria)
Cellphones, "or Smart Phones" could be useful for students. They're very similar to computers and laptops, since they can access materials such as online books and newspaper articles.
(Peter Brosnan and Akash Bagaria)
School administrators are wondering, given the fact that today's phones have many of the same capabilities as tablets and other electronic devices that can be used for instruction, if the current policy prohibiting cellphone use is too hard of a stance.
Cellphones in some schools can be used for instructional purposes in education since they are similar to tablets and other electronic devices.
(Stephanie Creech)
New York -- Thousands of teenagers who can't take their cellphones to school have another option, courtesy of a burgeoning industry of sorts in always-enterprising New York City: paying a dollar a day to leave the phones in a truck that's parked nearby.
In NYC public schools cellphones have been banned. Some schools have an alternative-leave your phones in the Electronic Device Storage truck for a dollar.

Should Cellphones
Be Allowed In School?

Thesis Statement
Cellphones can be used as a supplement to traditional technological tools such as the internet on school computers
Have any of your teachers asked you to use your cellphones for educational purposes?
NEW IDEA! Cellphones as educational tools
Conclusion
Today, this presentation proves how beneficial it would be to have cellphones in the hands of students during class.
Cellphones = Better chance of academic success
Cellphones beneficial to students and will prove to teachers that they can be useful
With these instruments, students would have greater success in completing work that can be done with mobile devices than on paper.
If schools don't allow cellphones to be used then they would rely on their computers instead
It's significant because students depend on the internet to gather information. No internet = DISASTER!!!! That is why cellphones need to be with students in case this type of problem happens.
(John Ekongo)
At least there is a place where you can use your phone on school campus. Without these places students might use them during class
(John Ekongo)

This supports how cellphones can be another source of information for all students. The reason why is because we use cellphones to find information more than searching an encyclopedia.
(Peter Brosnan and Akash Bagaria)
Cellphones can access materials that can be used for educational purposes. This would influence schools to allow cellphones to be accessed during class though only under teacher supervision and not for playing games.
(Peter Brosnan and Akash Bagaria)
At least there's a compromise besides sneaking your phone to school or leaving your phone at home. Best part- you could always access your phone at your free time by the truck
This would prove to be beneficial to student's interactions with education. If cellphones are equal to computers, this should convince teachers to allow cellphones in class.

Cellphones would be good for all students because in several schools, there
wouldn't be any internet access at one point, but you can still use your
phone for learning purposes. Cellphones can also be used for students when
they have a free period or lunch period if some schools won't allow
cellphones in classrooms.

5 Feb. 2014. All public schools in NYC ban students who have cellphones
with them, but one alternative to this is by leaving your cellphones in
trucks where they specifically store eletronical devices for students for a
dollar. Some schools are starting to make new polices like the BYOD,"Bring
Your Own Device" which embraces student's cellphones as powerful learning
tools that they can use in class.
