Does your Middle School (JR. High) allow students to carry and use their cell phones during the school day? My school is currently trying this policy and I have a few reservations.
I do teach technology but I keep thinking that the bad outweighs the good. Here are a few reasons why:
-Uncensored content- The school has no say as to what students are looking at.
– Phone as a status symbol- Kids with more money can show off what they have.
– Devices getting lost or stolen.
– Use of the camera in a phone
-Posting on Facebook during the school day (Cyberbullying)
I do like the idea of then having phones but turned off and in a locker feels like the better solution.
I would love to hear your comments!
