The question is based on the following passage.
Banning Phones at School
Having a phone in their hands hasn’t been only a trend these days but also a necessary for almost everyone. Students are no exception. However, people disagree on whether the devices are useful tools for education, especially during the lesson in classroom. Phones are considered distraction, so banning its uses at school is a must. Nonetheless, this is not necessary if we look at it from another perspective.
First, no families want to feel anxious about the safety of their children. Phone is an important device in this case because it allows parents to know that their child can reach them if needed. Uncertainty about schedules and stress stemming from inability to contact a child can be a big part of growing up for some students from families with heavily conflicting schedules and phones are a fairly simple way to solve this problem. So, now we can see that phone is an essential emergency device.
Secondly, digital devices, such as smartphones, offer an opportunity to engage students in a new way. There are technological resources designed to make learning more fun and engaging. Moreover, students can download some online learning apps that helps teacher to make the lecture more individual and interesting.
Furthermore, by dismissing phones as inherently distracting tools, we discourage students from learning to manage their use intentionally, productively, and in a way that supports a positive emotional well-being. Teaching students to be effective technology consumers is a valuable lesson at any age, and its importance only continues to grow today. By banning devices altogether, this learning opportunity is lost, and students are less likely to use their devices productively. Therefore, banning phones is a disadvantage for students, parents, and even teachers. Rather than banning phones, finding out a way to teach students the proper and productive ways of using these devices is a lot better.
