Phones have a very negative impact on school work and attention span. Phones can distract us from paying attention to the teacher and not focusing on school work. Teachers put their time and dedication into teaching and by using our phones we are taking away from that.
The light on our phones is called blue light. The blue light on our phones is similar to sunlight. Our brains, when the see sunlight, know to keep working and stay alert. When we are on our phones our brain thinks that the blue light is sunlight so our brain keeps working.
Everyone knows that the blue light can damage your eyes and brain. Phones can distract us from schoolwork and social skills. Instead of reading a book or doing homework kids are staying on their phones and using social media. Social media can have a very negative impact on some ones mental health and school work.
Phones need wifi to work so by using the schools wifi it’s charging the school more money and opposing another threat. More than 1 billion accounts were hacked in 2016. By allowing kids to have their phones at school, they could be opposing a threat to other kids and the school.
From a parental point of view, phones are just a distraction. They can ruin some ones life and destroy their reputation. In conclusion, phones shouldn’t be allowed at school according to me at least.
