The use of personal công nghệ devices in the classroom is prevalent at colleges & universities. Rather than embracing this trend, some faculty, departments và even entire institutions have started putting limitations on students’ use of personal giải pháp công nghệ in class.

I have experienced this firsthand in multiple classes at my own university. It started with teachers asking students lớn put away their sản phẩm điện thoại phones; now instructors are asking us to lớn keep our laptops closed for the duration of class. The reasons behind these limitations typically have been concerns about students’ attention spans: a desire khổng lồ prevent multitasking, keep them off of social media sites & limit distractions to others.

While it is inevitable that students will be distracted at times, putting constraints on the use of personal giải pháp công nghệ devices will not solve this problem. Restricting use of devices in the classroom is moving away from the trend of improving education by integrating technology. Here are five reasons why educational institutions should continue on that path instead of stepping back.

Students are technology natives. Using technology is second nature lớn students. They have grown up with it and incorporate it into almost every aspect of their lives. Notebooks, tablets and cellphones are all giải pháp công nghệ that students are accustomed to và can use as ancillary learning aids. They should not đại bại access khổng lồ potential learning tools that have known benefits in a classroom.Students use e-books. Many students are purchasing digital editions of textbooks instead of traditional printed copies for a variety of reasons, including cost efficiency, ease of accessibility, & environmental friendliness. E-books are typically accessed through a student’s personal device, such as a notebook, tablet or cellphone. Students should have access to lớn them lớn look up information during class.

Students want streamlined organization. Personal technology devices have a range of features that can aid students with organization, such as note-taking applications, calendars & virtual sticky notes. These help students stay more organized by keeping all of their information centralized và connected between devices. Users can find what works for them and tailor their devices to help them perform more effectively.Students need access to supplemental information. Smartphone devices give students internet access. Although it can be used inappropriately by some (such as to kiểm tra Facebook or Twitter), students often use the Net to find more information about a topic being discussed in class. Not only can students use their personal devices to find extra data on their own, but professors can provide additional information that is easily accessible to lớn their students.Students can prepare for work in the field. At the higher-education level, many students participate in field work as part of their specific areas of study. Much of this work requires the use of technology. For example, graphic thiết kế students may work on real projects that require relevant applications that are accessed through their personal devices. Learning how lớn use these apps in the classroom allows students will prepare them for using them outside of it.
