The Prison of Cell Phones
“Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our
lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine
something wonderful, because we're too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on
the cell phone”(Spielberg) (brain quote)This quotation states that the cell phones become our best
friend, but they also make our whole life busy or full of stress and this changes the whole story of life.

creating many problems in classes by taking cell phones they are distracting their friends by chatting and
by calling in their phones ,and in exam they are taking photos of question paper and passing to their
friend which is totally bad for their future. “Some would argue that cellphones make excellent learning
tools and should be used in innovative ways for our digital natives to make learning relevant” (quest

person .​With the built in cameras on most every cell phone. The opportunities for cheating aggressive
increase. Take a example of written exam. The teacher looks away for a moment and doing his/her work
1 or 2 students take a photo of the exam and share their exam with others friends​ . If students want to
cheat in test they can do so. If the teacher accept to take cellphones in school this process can lead to
cheating on tests and if they are caught by doing cheating they can got in trouble by the school teachers
and they can suspend them from school or rusticate for whole year and for their future this will make
problems for them and they don’t able to find the job. Cell phones are also creating many problems for
students and they can go in trouble by taking the phone in class during the exam. Some of the students

they cannot get success in future by doing this things , which would not generate their social skills and
talking skills which are very important in life for their jobs, for their childs and for their parents to have
the good life which they gaves to the student by taking care of his/her needs.All env. N​o the acceptable
condition of the cell phone should not be agreed by teacher because the other electronics device is used
for doing studies like chromebook or laptops and they can use it in best way when they are not using

grade with me. She is very nice girl. She got first position in her class and their parents promised her to
gift him new phone so as a promise they gift the phone to her. She is very happy by getting the new
phone. She made his new id in facebook. The facebook friend of her is started messaging him in
messenger. She also started messaging him. He started bullying to my friend and he is using very bad
language with him she didn’t reply his messages. He continuing bullying him. Once she told me that one
boy is bullying me and i said who is he. She said that he makes the fake id and bullying me and she was
feared about the incident happen with him. She started telling the each things he messaged to him and i
was so shocked that this is happening by taking the phone in our hand and from that day i suggested
him that to give the phone to her parents and not take it before completing your study. So the persons
are not looking for whom they are talking now a days the people are bullying to each others in
commenting for their post in facebook or in other chatting apps, but if we are good we don’t want to
take the phone till our study is not completed.
CONCLUSION: Finally the conclusion is that, cell phones only create distractions in students
and teachers. If the phone creating noise in class by its sound , it changes whole environment in the
room. The teachers are completely focusing on students study, not for looking at the students if there
phone is ringing. It also create noise in class between students, teacher have to reproof the student
which distracts his/her class. Some students agreeing in majority that cellphones should be allowed on
school campus in case of emergency things like ( being lost from school campus any other reason like
feeling not well) .There are phones available in most classrooms and in the school's office they can call
and take help from the office if they needed it and can call their parents. The majority of schools
students agree that cell phones should not be accepted in school in every area. They don’t have any
instruction for the costly things they are broughting to school. If the device get losted in any situation,
