  3. The best solution is to create cell phone usage rules that allow devices to be
  4. accessible without disturbing other students’ educational opportunities.
  5. Students should be permitted to keep their phones in their bags, pockets, or
  6. other belongings as long as the phones are on silent in class. Vibrate
  7. settings may be permitted if the instructor does not believe it will distract
  8. him or her, since the noise of the vibration may not be noticeable in a large
  9. classroom. If a student needs to answer the phone during an emergency, he
  10. or she can step out of the classroom to do so. This setup would give the
  11. students and the instructor peace of mind.
  12. Cell phone restrictions in classrooms should also include specific disciplinary
  13. actions for breaking the rules. If a student is caught using the phone in
  14. class, he or she should be excused for the rest of the day. Professors should
  15. refrain from physically taking possession of a student’s phone because of
  16. liability conflicts. If the phone is damaged while in the professor’s
  17. possession, the school or the instructor could be held responsible for the
  18. repairs. It is safer to ask the student to leave the classroom than it is to take
  19. the phone away completely.
  20. Each school, professor and student body is different. Colleges must adapt
  21. their rules and discipline efforts to reflect the current needs of their
  22. students. Eliminating cell phones in college classrooms is an over stretch,
  23. but there are ways to balance students’ rights and instructors’ rights. With
  24. the right amount of control and flexibility, colleges can create a pleasant
  25. learning environment with maximum safety and minimal interruptions.
