Cell phones have become the source of trouble number one for students. They have a bad effect on the majority of them. These devices which are designed primarily to be used in case of emergency, perturb the learners and annoy the teachers in class; therefore, schools don’t tolerate them. The learners cannot focus any more. They either check messages and play games or even listen to music via the Bluetooth headsets. Only very few serious students are aware of the danger that the mobile phone represents for them, so they simply turn it off during classes.
Nobody can deny the amount of assistance that smart phones can offer the students so as to carry on with their studies. There are various learning software types inside them like dictionaries, calculators and a lot more options including internet connection; still, the students use them simply for texting, chatting or cheating. In brief, do those students actually know the benefits of their cell phones? If yes, do they exploit them wisely? That's the question.
