The Menace of Mobile Devices … and Paper

Students text each over on mobile phones. Students pass each other notes on pieces of paper.

Students use mobile phones to cheat in exams. Students use paper to cheat in exams.

Students play games on mobile devices in class. Students doodle on paper.

The clicking of keys on mobile devices is distracting. The rustle of paper is distracting.

There is not yet a mobile equivalent of the paper plane or a scrunched up ball of paper thrown at the back of someone’s head.

The solution is obvious: ban paper in class.

    Another plus for mobile phones – if students are texting each other, they aren’t whispering, which is far more distracting.
