Cell phones in school?

Why should cell phones be allowed in school?
Phones in school can be used educationally because of apps. Kids can have reminders of tests, or notes, or other educational activities on their phones. Those things can be especially helpful in a school that doesn't have enough funding's to buy individuals electronic devices, such as laptops. Having phones in school also builds personality. If kids are trusted to not lose their phones in school, it teaches them responsibility, because they would want to prove that they can handle it."Building mobiles into the school curriculum enables pupils to learn everything from soft skills, such as learning to use the web effectively, to more specific tools, such as the latest communications and social platforms that are used in the world of work. And that is to say nothing about teaching specific skills, such as coding, which pupils can learn on their own devices, and where they can play with the results of their own work. From a practical point of view, how can we tell children that technology is such an important part of the curriculum when we simultaneously say they can’t be trusted with their own devices because it inhibits their learning?" says Daniel O'Sullivan from The Guardian. That piece of article shows how in tech class, kids should be able to also use their phones to better their future. Phones help educationally to show kids the many different possible things you can do on your phone, to make your life easier. Phones should be allowed in school for education purposes.
