Cell-phones definitely benefit kids in their ability to learn. Students can use their cell phones to listen to music while doing homework, and speaking from personal experience, it really helps students focus.

Students can also use their phones to research topics for the subject. This makes it easier for people to understand what teachers are saying. Having a phone can also keep students who already understand the material not distract other students who are actually trying to learn.

We need a common school policy at OA, because it is difficult for students to keep track of whether or not a teacher approves of them using their phone, and certain teachers are not consistent on when kids can use phones.

Of course the counterargument to this is kids will not learn as easily because they are distracted. It also does increase the possibility and likelihood of students cheating. But the downsides and risks are outweighed by the many benefits.

Cell phones should be allowed in classes as long as there is a common policy in the entire school.
