Cell Phone Usage in the Classroom

Does cell phone usage in classrooms affect students? Cell phones in the classrooms distract students from learning.
Students are paying more attention to their phones than their education. Also, grades are gradually dropping. When grades drop opportunities drop.
Rachel Feldman from newswise.com said, “94 percent of the pupils admitted to accessing social media or file-sharing sites during class.” Only six percent of the pupils were on task.
On the other hand, phones are calming and can enhance learning probabilities. With phones in the classroom students learn in more creative ways.
To fix this issue, students can put their phones in their backpacks. The teacher could also collect the phones in the beginning of class, and return them at the end.
Therefore, phones in classrooms disengage students from the real world.
