At my school in Germany we are not allowed to use mobile phones on school grounds. I really dislike that because your phone can be a very useful tool for you. It can be a calculator and a dictionary at the same time. Of course, I would not strictly use my phone for learning. I would off and on send a text to a friend, or watch a video during the break. But is that so bad? Everyone passes around notes or talks during class. I think if the students would not use the phones all the time and for most of the time just for school stuff, it should be fine. If you ban cell phones from school grounds, there would be no comparisons about who has the nicest phone. They can get very expensive and a lot of people can not afford that. Jealousy and mockery would be pushed out of school this way.
