Proposition team :
- students can send messages to classmates with the answer of the test or final examns.
- this thing break the attention in the teacher .. and can annoying in class if somebody call you.

Opossition team :
-cellphones help to stundents in math class with the calculator.
-cellphones can be use to have comunication with parents if something bad happen to you.

im my humble opinion opossition team is the winner because they have more arguments and obvious colleges and high schools can forbid cells.

im in the opposition team .. because forbid cells is imposible and technology is a good for us.

proposition team:
the first one: was that the cell phone interrupted the all class...
the second one: the student can send mss not for privacity troubles, beacuse they send mss for cheat each other.

opposition team:
the first one: was beacause a any member of thay families can call for a horrible trouble, or wherever been their problem, the cellphone on can make you ( actualizado ) with all problems.
the second one: the cellphone had a calculator.

what team should have won the competition?
A: in my opinion, the team that I agree and that I think to they won, was the opposition team, because they have to be comunicated with the exterior world, all world is globalizated, so, the school ( or high school, wherever) had computer, so, why not?, all member of the class have to had a cellphone... =)

Proposition team:
1.They say that the cell phone isn´t necesary in the classes, for what use?, for to take pictures or to teach?
Is better use the tecnology for somthing realy necesary in the education.
2.In case of emergency the school is responsable of to inform to family.
Besides a ring interrumpt in the classes.

Oposition team:
In this i don´t understand as much, but well..
1.The comunication is more easy fot the studients.
2.With the diferents functions, of the cell fhone, we can be organize.

Should have won the propositon team , because they had more argument stronger than the opposition team.

I will be in the proposition team, because i think the same they, that isn´t approtiate, ONLY in classes and we can use the cell in the recreation or when the teacher don´t come.xp

PROPOSITION TEAM:

1st. The cellphones interrupts the speech of someone, and in the same time, all the class.

2nd. The students can send messages not for a personal and privacy problems (emergency), because they are cheating during the test.

OPPOSITION TEAM:

1st. Cellphones its use not only to call, you can send messages, also had calculator, conversions, calendar, weather, etc.

2nd. Cellphones create a good experience of peace, because when the parents didn't know where the kids are, they can call them and makes in them peace, because they know that their kids are alright.

What team should have won the competition?

- In my opinion, I agree and I think to they won, was the Opposition team, because they said that we need to be comunicated with the exterior world to know more culture, technological advances, etc. (and its a way to learn), we live the globalization, and the mobiles phones its an alternative to no have a personal computer and also organize us, the students.

In wich team you would be and why?

- In the Opposition Team. Because, they said really good arguments, about shorter distances between people, comunicated with other cultures, and create a good experience of peace in our parents when we go out. (localization).


Thanks Teacher.

-We can use the cellphone in the tets for send message to our classmates with the answer =P

Oposition team
-Through the cellphone, someone of our family can call us if something is wrong.
-the cellphone has differents functions, it's not just for call to other people,because Other of the use of cellphones , it has calculator or for entertain us.

proposition team :

1° the use of cellular in classes is very annoying for that desconcentra a lot.

2° give bad use to the telofono like pór example in the tests they can use it to be requested answers and they send it to him by means of a message

oposition team :

1° the use of the cellular one is very importamte you can use of emergency for llamr to the parents.

2° The cellular telephone has functions of different, it is not only for calling to other people, because the use of cellular telephones also has calculator that we can use it in mathematical and it cannot serve as a lot of use.

for my the winning team was that of opositon because taenia basicses but strong that the other team.

I would be in the team oposition team because one could not be without a telephone for any emergency that you us cruse

PROPOSITION TEAM
- THAT SOUNDS THE CELLULAR TELEPHONE IN HOURS OF CLASS CAN PROVOKE THE DISTRACTION BETWEEN STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.
- THE STUDENTS WHO DO TEST CAN GUARD THE QUESTIONS OR ANSWERS IN THE CELLPHONE AND THEN THEY BE SENT TO THE STUDENT WHO HAS NOT PRODUCED IT EVEN.

OPPOSITION TEAM:

- OFTEN THE STUDENTS' CASES ARE KNOWN INJURED IN HOURS OF CLASS.
IN THESE CASES THE CELLPHONE WOULD BE OF GREAT HELP, DUE AQUE IS IN THESE WHERE ONE GUARDS THE TELEPHONES OF THE RELATIVES OR ACQUAINTANCES OF THE ROUGH STUDENTS.

- THE CELL PHONE ARE OF GREAT HELP WHEN A CALCULATOR IS NEEDED IN HAND.

THE TEAM THAT HAS MORE CONVINCING ARGUMENTS IS THE OPPOSITION TEAM.

I WOULD BE OF OPPOSITION TEAM.PORQUE DEFIENDO EL INTERÉS DE POSEER A CELLPHONE
