Technology in the classroom could possibly be the most important addition in the past two decades. Things like computers and tablets are used as educational tools to keep a classroom fun but also productive, but then why do classrooms coil at the thought of phones being in the classroom. Kids can do the exact same things the computer and tablet can on a phone. The main reason is the image people get from phones, they have always been on the rejected side of places they can be. In school, teachers can see them as a distraction, in work, an excuse to not work. So they are “banned”, they must never be seen, they can never be used to look info up. Phones need to be allowed more in school because of the education possibilities that would come from it and the wrongful neglect that has put a bad name on them.

In today’s world when asked a question you don’t know the answer to, you look it up. This allows easy answers to questions that could take days to find before technology. Computers in the school world can be cheap if it’s a couple of them here and there, but the schools that have 70+ computers the bill can really add up. By allowing kids to use their phone, that can easily do stuff the computer can, in classrooms, a school could save money on school computers and help out other departments in need. According to USA Today “89% of teens in highschool have some sort of cellular device”. This means that of a class of 100, 89 students have a phone that they can use instead of a school having to order a good amount of computers to keep up with the number of students. Phones could not only help kids learn faster and easier. It could help schools that can’t afford a bunch of computers, but these better methods need to keep up with the current age.

If it were not for technology in the “adult world” advances to anything would be very rare. This includes things from tablets to phones and even computers. Without them, people would be in the dark about so many things. That is not the case in our world.”96% of american adults own a cell phone around the world whether it be for personal use or work”. This means that phones are a common tool to use in the real world and one that should not be limited in schools and other educational areas when it is one of the most powerful learning tools we have.

People claim that phones are a huge distraction when it comes to learning. Now in some cases this can be true but for 75% of students, phones are another source to help them find information. Just because there are a handful of kids that will use this power wrongfully but that’s true about any subject that involves different types of people, since they are using it to not be productive does not mean that schools and other educational areas should ban them and hurt those who are actually using them correctly.

Phones, while most use them correctly, there will always be a group that does not. This does not mean that they need to be banned. Kids use them for more good than bad and banning them will do no good in the long run, they will find a way around the rule and just use them anyways which hurts the people who would actually use them to learn. Phones need to be kept unbanned because in the end there will always be more pros than cons.
