Mobile phones seem to be everywhere now and the devices, which were once a luxury for indulgent grown ups, are now in the hands of many kids and teenagers. However, are they really necessary at school?
      First of all, mobile phones could distract the students. Nowadays, children cannot only text and make calls with their mobiles, they can also play games, surf the internet and listen to music. All these features could interfere with the child’s concentration and ability to learn if they play with them in class.
    Moreover, it gives a great opportunity to cheat. Besides the distraction problem, access to the internet can also be used to look up answers and mobile phones have a couple of other dynamic features – a calculator and the ability to save notes. The possibility of children having access to this information during important exams could be too tempting for pupils not to take advantage of.
      On the other hand, the children can get in touch when necessary. The main benefit of having a phone is that the child can get in touch with you whenever they need to. This allows parents to feel they are safe and gives them assurance knowing they can call home if they have a problem.
      What is more, mobile phones can be very discreet if turned off or on to silent. As long as the child remembers to do this their phone won't cause a distraction in class, but they will stay have a way to contact you if they need to. Giving them a standard rather than a smartphone will also reduce the risk of distraction.
      In conclusion, using a mobile phone at school has its benefits and drawbacks. It is important to set indisputable limits and keep an eye on their children to remain under them.
