Implementation of using gadget during class hours
Technology helps people live better and easier, before people used letter for their communication but because of the modern technology nowadays people use cell phone, tablets, computers and other gadget in terms of communication and other purposes. It is no surprise then that the use of technology occurs in the classroom. In the present generation, students are obsessed in using gadget. They usually want to buy a new release gadget to satisfy their wants, as a result of this students involve gadget in their everyday life including their studies. Students use more time using gadget than studying their lesson that affects their academic performance. The implementation of using gadget during class hour will not be approved because it will affect the student’s academic performance, socialization and society negatively.
Some believe that the use of gadget in the classroom plays integral role of the student’s success in the future, but I believe that using gadget during class hour is distracting students from their potential of learning. These devices are being used in hopes of enhancing students’ overall educational performance; students are using devices for activities such as answering questions, examining visualizations, note taking, researching, and communicating (e.g., email) (“Integrating Tech in High School,” 2012). Although the intended purposes of these devices are to improve educational experiences for the student, there have also been negative consequences from the introduction of modern technology in the classroom (Junco, 2012). Students who are using gadget during class hour cant focused on the lesson that the teacher discusses. Alarmingly, research shows that even students in proximity to other students using this technology are more likely to perform poorer in the classroom, even when they were not personally using technology (Sana, Weston, ; Cepeda, 2013).
In general, using gadget during class hour can distract the students in their discussion that affect the academic performance of students, they are likely to perform, collaborate, and participate in class. Using gadget should not be approved so that students can focused on the discussion, perform/ participate, collaborate in the class and get a high grades.
