ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES ESSAYTopic: Many teenagers now have their own smart phone. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this and give your own opinion.
The young now have more chance to own a smart phone than their parents ever. Beside the advantage is that they can learn independently anywhere at any time, wasting time is the biggest drawback from smart phone that I believe parents should supervise the phone usage regularly.
Learning freely is the advantage that teenagers who have a smart phone gains the most. Because the internet is everywhere, students can approach to many knowledges around the world with different languages. With an ability to collect right information, it will maximize the advantage when studying. In my experience, I have found many courses that improving myself such as Learn and Master guitar system by Gibson which teaches me to play a guitar at home through a phone screen. And there are many more schools choosing to teach online in the Covid-19 pandemic which will expand the chance for learners to do research by themselves. This helps young people using phone properly and increasing their research ability. Despite of its advantage, distraction is the biggest problem that young phone users have to deal with if not being looked after carefully.
There are many features in the phone take attraction from the young such as social medias and games which means that it distracts the young from studying. While in class, a notification pops up and its owner will subconsciously take the mobile to check. This action cuts the concentration flow and it takes a moment to focus again which prevents students from deep work or study. As concentration is being stolen, the result after studying will be noticeable low.
Teenagers are received many modernist technologies that even did not appear in their parent generation. So, the one who choose to use phone wisely will profit most instead of throwing time out of the window.
