As has been said already, smartphones are being seen to have a disruptive influence in classrooms.
The number of children using them and bringing them to class is always going up.
In fact, there are some experts who say that children under the age of 16 years should not be allowed to use them at all. They say that they should not allow such usage until and unless there is no other way to do things.
In fact, it is being believed that such usage is actually promoting bad behavior among students as well.
Parents often ask experts when they should give their children their first smartphone.
Children, experts say, are a curious lot and they would always check those things out when they get hold of a smartphone.It is needless to say that this is the day and age of technology.The most evident example of that is the proliferation of smartphones. Even children are proudly flashing their smartphones these days and using them at all times.Experts say that if a child is given a smartphone before the age of 16 years there should be strict monitoring by the adults to see that nothing untoward is happening.It is very important that they are shielded from social ills such as racism and violence that is freely available on the internet these days.This has created a situation of sorts for the teachers as well.The seriousness of the situation could be understood from the fact that even primary school students have these gadgets. The usage of a smartphone during the lectures is not only degraded the performance of the students but also create a disturbing environment for the other student.These days, learning and school management systems are being created with the view of making education better and easier than what it was earlier.These technological systems are available only on the internet and this is perhaps the biggest reason why students should be encouraged to use smartphones in class.This is because there is always the fear of being mocked by their fellow students for asking those questions.Since this can be done at any time in the day students are encouraged to study at all times and this only benefits them in life.
