ثانوية بريطانية تسمح لطلابها إحضار الهواتف النقالة الى الفصول

students using mobiles

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

A school in England has allowed its students to use their mobile phones in class.

Notre Dame High School in Sheffield has said that it will lift a ban on students using their mobile phones in class as they can be used as extra educational resources by the students.

The assistant headmaster, Paul Haigh, said that there are huge potential resources in mobile phones and that students can use them to enhance their learning experience.

This move came after comments by the head of the National Association of Head Teachers here in the UK who said that a ban on mobile phones in class should be lifted.

Mr Brookes said that children are so adept at using modern technology, it would be terrible not to allow them to use it in their lessons.

He feels that adults need to understand the world children live in and not make them leave that world outside their school gates.

But not everyone agrees with this idea.

Chris Keates from the largest teachers union in the UK says that teachers and students need to be protected from abuse of this technology.

She said that mobile phones distract students and cause teachers a lot of frustration when trying to get students to calm down and pay attention.

Although Notre Dame High School is convinced that it is the right thing to do, the results of letting students into their classrooms with mobile phones are still unknown, and it might take a while before teachers at Notre Dame find out those results.

What do you think the results will be if mobile phones are allowed into classrooms in the Arab world? Write to us in English!

In my opinion, there is a lot of technologies can be used in classrooms instead of the mobile phone!
By using it we will help the students to be distracted and the results will be negative.

Are they serious? This is very weird and incredible. What I experienced everywhere, in classrooms,lecture halls, meeting rooms,conferences,anywhere some thing serious takes place using the mobile phone is forbidden, even in cinemas which is almost for fun mobile phones not allowed, it is a priority to be so in educational associations.I'm learning German by now and our teacher always turn off her mobile phone & asked us to do so or at least make it silence &

I think use mobile phone in the classroom mybe creats lack of concentration for other students and teachers, i prefer to put the mobile phone silent and you can receive messages, use mobile related to individual how use the mobile phone how can use it in classroom, street, at transportation.
many people can not use mobile polite in the classroom or anywhere. Here in sudan is forbiden usage mobile in the classroom due to most of them are still young and some private schools ban bringing mobiles in. Hassan Obeid, Omdurman, Sudan
