Should Cell Phones Be Banned in Colleges?? - February 11th, 2005

Hey all,
Ssup. Write in your replies.. What do you think?? Should Cell phones be banned in colleges? If yes why? if no why?

Lets hope that faculties read this and consider this issue from a students perspective...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My View :-

Cell Phones should not be banned in colleges. With technological advancements we should make provisions to make better use of it.
In BMS colleges in mumbai, having a cell phone is a must. Many a time lectures are cancelled or timings are changed and classes are shifted to some other room numbers and students are informed thru SMS chain by a person having the well known, and ever famous reliance ka dabba which offers FREE SMS service. Imagine not carrying a cell phone when you come to college. And mind you, changes in lec timings and class rooms are informed at the last minute. Not having a cell phone at that time will ultimately result into wastage of time for a person travelling from say borivali or virar all the way to churchgate. And carrying a cell phone means paying a fine of Rs 500/- to the college.

Hope our educational system improves with time and joins hands with technology. As if introducing kullads in railways was not enough.. Is INDIA developing or are we on a backward trend?

Write in your reponses. I truly hope some faculty reads this :idea:

Cell phones should be allowed - February 11th, 2005

I totally agree with u. Cell phones are a must in today's world. mainly b'coz of the unexpected lecture timings and room nos. i cannot even imagine life w/o a cell phone. my attendance would have been very less if it were not for the sms's of lecture timings. also because the cell phones are used for academic purposes, there is no point in banning them.
regards
:P

Re: Should Cell Phones Be Banned in Colleges?? - January 27th, 2006

My view is that cellphones are must for todays life especially in BMS because anytime the lecture time changes and Also there was many students stucked in rain on 26th july in Mumbai so because of cellphones only students was able to contact at Homes, relatives etc.....

But cellphones with cameras should be banned in colleges because of the Scandals and many of the students take photo of answers and they copy in exams through it.


It's better to let someone think you are an Idiot than to open your mouth and prove it.

hi there, I dont think cellphones should be banned. they were a great help during the 26/7 incident. As far as the camera ones goes you can ban them but the normal ones are must for every student especially BMS students as any change in the college schedule is informed using SMS chains.

Re: Should Cell Phones Be Banned in Colleges?? - January 29th, 2006

Well ma view kinda reflects more on the general scenario.. Dat being cell phones are provided to students at such young age... Nd with da techno gadget we hv we use this technology onto evil minds too.. Jst like da DPS case of mms.. Bringing a cell fone has become a necessity wen it comes to mngmt courses as ther are no fix schedules in many collgs of da lectures what time commencing and the classes werin they shall be conducted.. Cellphones becomes a major help dwn der.. But @ da same time it being given at secondary schoolin level becomes like a tool for playin pranks which mite end up onto hurtin an individual image.. So better provide da cellphones @ mngmt level as its a necessity nd dey knw da usage.. While secondary level cell phones wit camera should be eliminated but a communication instrument is alwyz welcome.. !! Ppl who say Cellphones i say

i think cell phones can be pretty useful if used properly,unfortunately they have only turned out to become a distraction!!! i do not think cell phones should be banned,as there could be some important news about timings or any thing urgent !!its important to trace down anyone. and also for safety.but i really do belive that cell phones should not be brought to colleges for distraction and fun or even for showoff,as its really turning off!! until and unless we really need them ,we should have it!

Well….now that cell phones have made their mark successfully connecting people…it would be a big misnomer to say that they are not required for even a school going student.
The way we (though college students) can stay connected with the rest of the world…Knowing the news updates…the stock market fluctuations….all these I just can’t miss simply because IM IN MY COLLEGE…there are many uses of having stay connected and a ban on this would means a ban on my own information.

But also looking into the fact of the real usage of it by the students as a means of hindering privacy of others (cam phones) is an issue to be thought of. We have seen recent cases of how cam phones have been exploited by the students. It only explains the fact that some use it for information and some use it as a mere tool for exploitation. However the situation may be ban on cell phones in the college can never be a solution.

As technology breeds producing innovative products it is the responsibility of the man to use it intelligently. His usage clearly specifies whether education ruined him or that it made him wise.

i think carrying cellphone is the need of hour.any person who steps out of house needs to b equiped with a mobile even if he is a student.cellphones r very handy in case of accident or mishhap nd its not that students dont have mishaps .cell helps us keeping contact within the college because campuses r so big.AND MOST OF ALL CELLS PROVIDE IS WITH A GAME TO PLAY DURING A BORING LECTURE
