Cell Phones Should Not be Allowed in Classrooms

This speech can be used in a college, university, or school, in a competition by the students, teachers, and administration who do not support the use of cell phones in class rooms. This can also be used as an essay whilst only eliminating the Good morning, and other first person pronouns to third person pronouns.

Good morning my dear Fellows,

Today, i stand here to speak against the allowance of cellphones in classrooms. This topic has been widely discussed in every household. This topic is too wide to be covered in few minutes. I agree that mobile phones are undeniable means of communication today. I also understand that more than a want it is a need today. In contemporary world today, almost everybody has a mobile phone. Being very honest, it is a never ending race of technology. Formerly, it was only used as a portable means of communication but in the era we are living today, the function of a mobile phone has developed into entertainment that includes watching movies, taking pictures, and playing games.

Furthermore, mobile phone has also come into the schools, colleges, and university. However, it has both positive, and negative effect on students. Students are always the fashion followers. Mobile phone, with the symbol of fashion, popularity, and innovation, fits in with the psychological characteristic of adolescents nowadays. However, the use of cell phones will bring more negative than positive effect for students. Of course, students use it as a mean of communication, and sometimes for an emergency call if they need it. Yet, there are many other ways to misuse this demon of our society.

In the today’s time, allowing cellphones is more like calling out your own destruction. This will not only be a distraction for the student using it but also when it rings, the entire class will be disturbed including the teacher. It is not only going to break the moment of the class but such distractions will affect the teachers planning on completion of a specific part of syllabus.

Moreover, it will initiate a race among students. Any student who is relatively well off will bring a more attractive looking, and expensive looking cell phone to the class. This will not only make the students from a humble background feel inferior but also make them feel deprived of a facility, which just looks as a blessing, and truly is not.

Furthermore, with the cell phone in your hand you can take pictures of who so ever when so ever you want. It will create a very uncomfortable environment in classroom, and not only that it will also be a tool that can easily be used to invade someone’s personal space, and privacy which is totally wrong.

Another drawback of allowing cell phones will be that students will begin to record lectures rather than taking notes, and that will dull their brain, and their memorization ability to a very large extent. Students learn better by writing rather than listening, and that will further lead to low grades. Students will no more be in practice of writing, and that will eventually lead to poor time management, and other issues.

Above are few of the reasons i have mentioned but there are plentiful of them. We can look into alternate ways of the reasons which force school to allow cell phones, and opt for them instead of allowing mobile phone. That is pretty much it of what i had to say. Thank you for your patient listening.
