I think the use of cell phones can't be prohibited in colleges, owing to the fact that mobile phone is part-and-parcel of everyday life. Communication has become so much dependent on it, that i don't think, that today's man can see life without a mobile. However, the misuse of mobile phones is more of a conscience-provoking thing. We can make laws, but can't change anyone's conscience. People have to become smarter and others have to become more righteous in their attitude, as misuse of a technology is always disasterous. They must realise that the ones they degrade by filming in such an obscene way, can one day, be their own family members too! (God Forbid!)

Hence, we need to bring such kind of awareness in people, try to awaken their lost souls, rather than thinking of banning the technology...

As Kartik once told me, if u have a headache, u don't chop off the head, rather seek for medication.

Re: Should Cell Phones Be Banned in Colleges?? - April 26th, 2006

i feel cell phones are really helpful... as everyone here mentioned abt the last moment changes in lecture timings and all... i feel cell phones have helped each of us...

but i would like to mention one thing i.e. if cell phones are banned for students than it should be banned for professors too... why are they allowed to talk on phone in between the lectures and do whatever they want... i feel cell phones are very helpful in case of emergency.... atleast i can contact my mom-dad when my coll ppl do non-sense things...

regards

Going back to basics - Remember - Technology if used wisely is a boon else a disaster. It hold true for use of cellphones in colleges (or even school !! we can see lot of kids carrying one!)

If everyone understands the importance & utility of cellphone and also use them for productive work (I mean productive as in studies & results ONLY) and if the students can demonstrate the same thru' their behavior, No college will ban or charge fine for carrying a cellphone. Make no mistake - even a single instance of MMS like the one happened at DPS Delhi will again trigger policing by the college.

cell phones should not be banned! people argue how did your seniors exist in the age without the cell phones...well there are lotssa things that people didnt enjoy then....it was YOUR bad luck...on the serious front...as age evolves...everyone has to grow...and this goes especially with the elders... i.e our professors and principals! well if you really want to ban then PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH! there are so many professors who use their cell phone in between their lectures! isnt that wrong?

cell phones..should not be banned...every student should take a responsibilty to not make it a nuisance for the fellow students and professors during lectures!

Hi Folks,
I agree to the fact that Mobile Phones are part of life and has become an indispensable gadget.Mobile phones are really helpful when he/she is need of help.But I can't take the case of BMS because the college should give prior annoucements to its students regarding the cancellation of session(s).But they are using the techonology to cover their mistake.But looking at other side of the coin that students waste really a gud amount of time talking over the mobile phones and as someone has already suggested they started sending messages and playing games during class hours.This is not a good sign for a student.

So my conclusion could be "you are allowed to carry Mobile phones within the campus but the phones must be switched OFF during class hours."

The whole education system is missing one point.

When I was in school, I had this teacher Parul Ma'am . Whenever a student used to yawn or was not paying attention.. she used to stop teaching and ask the class if the session was boring.. then a little bit humour along the side of the subject and things would catch up .

It seldom happened that a student would not give her the much earned undivided attention she expected.

Now lets look at your part of the story.. if a prof is teaching and a student is playing with his cell phone.. the student is not to be blamed .. its the responsibility of the prof to make it interesting.. else.. whats the point in paying the prof ??

Piggybacking on ban to the use of cell phones for coping with the profs inability to teach cannot be accepted.

Now, If you want to ban use of cell phones for students, apply the same rule for profs, as if students will get distracted when a prof uses it in between the class as much as if it would be the other way round.

A RULE IN THE COLLEGE SHUD B 4 ALL...........THEN B IT A STUDENT OR A PROF. FOR THAT MATTER.

AS FAR AS THE CASE OF "BANNIN CELL PHONES" IS CONCERNED .............ITS ABSOLUTELY NOT FEASIBLE........................ ...


BUT THEN 1 CANNOT IGNORE THE FACT THAT CLASSROOM DECORUM HAS 2 B MAINTAINED...............THIS IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BOTH THE PROF. & THE STUDENT.......FOR THIS V HAVE ALTERNATIVES......EITHER SWITCH OFF OR GO ON SILENT MODE.

BANNIN IS NOT A SOLUTION.....................Y TAKE UNTHOUGHTFUL DECISIONS THAT GIVE RISE 2 OTHER PROBLEMS.

THANX...

PALLAVI.
