Buzzzzz… Buzzzzz… Buzzzzz… is the noise most people’s phone’s make when they received a text message, a phone call, or a notification from some random app. Once hearing that noise most people's response would be to pick up their phones and forget what they are in the middle of doing. Even though phones could be useful, at some moments it becomes a distraction.
During Mrs. Liotta’s interview, an English teacher here in McMahon, I asked her do you think that technology is a distraction in someone’s life? She then responded, “Yes, I do. I think technology is amazing and can be extremely helpful in certain situations, but I also think it is distracting and takes away from hands-on learning and physical activities.” As said before phones can be very helpful, but when it comes to using it all the time, it becomes a big distraction.
Other than being a distraction and causing people to become unproductive, phones can be very helpful in emergencies or when information is needed. Thayly Santos, a student here at Brien McMahon High School stated, “They help us connect with our loved ones and it helps inform ourselves about what is going on in the world.” Many people would agree with the fact that phones are bad if used all the time, and sometimes causes accidents, but other times they could be used to save a person’s life.
