Should we be able to use phones in school? january 26, 2015 kyle conway
Just imagine it, being able to have your phone in class without risking a detention! Seems absurd right? Well it is a possibility that should be considered.
Let's look at the possibilities here. By being able to have your phone in class, you can use it during appropriate times for good reasons. Most people like to listen to music while they work. By having their phone, those individuals will be able to listen to their music and concentrate more while not being a distraction to the class. Also, students can use their phones for academic purposes. If they are unsure over a definition or not understanding something, they can easily look it up on their phones and find the answer that way. They can also use apps such as Google docs to take notes or write papers. By limiting the need of school provided technology, our phones can prove cost efficient for both the student and the school.
Now, wether administration would consider this proposal is uncertain, but it surely is something to consider.
