More and more children and teenagers are getting their own cell phones as they are a very handy, cheap, and useful mode of communication. In many cases of emergencies, children can access their phones to call their parents or helpline numbers like the police in an instant. If students need something from home they can call and ask someone to bring it. If the school bus or any other transport is not available they can call home and ask to be picked up. Sometimes there scenarios where students have to stay at school longer so they can use their phones to inform their parents. Students should not only be allowed to carry cell phones but encouraged to judiciously use this wonderful new age technology. They can use their phones to keep updated whether by browsing news websites or educational portals. A low priced smartphone costs much less than buying a personal computer or a laptop hence it would be easily affordable for many parents to buy one for their children. During a classroom session it is highly possible to miss out certain crucial points of a discussion. That is when cell phones are used to record and playback the entire discussion for reviewing lessons.
