Do cell phones interfere with learning?

imagesAt Harris County High School the students think that technology is addicting to the students. Here at the high school, teachers have a policy for the use of cell phones in class. Half of the student body uses a phone during the day. Sometime the teachers let’s the kids use theirs phone during class, but some kids take it for granted, because they use the. Every kid has an excuse for being on their phone such as, “ohmy mom/dad texted me.” If you are in school, your parent should not know not to text you. If it was an emergency your parent should call the office. Every kid here at Harris County has gotten in trouble at some point for being on their phones during classes when there are not supposed too.

 

The Advanced Learning & Development Institute says that “A very recent discovery shows that microwave radiation changes the permeability of the blood brain barrier. Our brain has its own immune system as does our body” “Professor Salford atLund University in Sweden has shown that such pulsing as from mobile phones can alter the permeability of the blood brain barrier.”

 

 To solve the issue of altering the blood brain barrier is to limited time on being on a device. The most time time you should spend on a device is about a hour and half. Shut of the phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, ipods, mp3 player, and pick up a book and read.
