I personally see no merit in this. There are so many possible distractions and sidetracking that there'll be less learning and more Internet browsing

This wouldn't work well because that means more work for the teacher because he/she would have to monitor each child to ensure they're not on any dodgy sites

Nah - don't see how this would work well, especially in Primary schools. This just wouldn't work

They could use cellphones to search for word meanings and google homework. I think this would be helpful since everyone is already on the internet. Easier to learn that way.

Students would get distracted by cellphones. They'd end up texting or playing games. Cellphones shouldn't even be allowed in classrooms so kids can focus on lessons.

They could use laptops. It's easier than cellphones. Using gadgets for learning will be the future. I approve of this.

Not cellphones. They'll just end up surfing, texting or Facebook. They can do that at home. You go to school to learn. Don't waste your parents money.

They could use computers and laptops instead of cellphones. It would also be easier for the teachers to monitor what they're doing since the screens are bigger. We need to make use of the available technology for better updated learning materials.

Agree. Laptops are better and more convenient than cellphones. It would be a lot more useful since they can also type in reports.

I don't see why not. Smart phones are very useful nowadays and it could help make complex topics easier to understand for regular Joes.

They'll just end up on social media or text each other. Kids are so addicted to their cellphones they're attached to their hip.

Yes but maybe a school provided one so kids won't be tempted to text or do other stuffs.

Cellphones could come in handy researching. They might as well use it and maximize it for learning since people never leave home without their cellphones.
