If the case is about class disturbance, it does not mean that we have to completely ban them.
if people want to spend their recess on there i Pod's when it is their free time, I think that, that is totally fair.
I think that any other time during school hours is not ok, because if a person is talking and you are sitting in your seat with your i Pod, then you might get it taken away, but it is also being disrespectful to the person that is talking, because you are not giving them your attention and being a respectful listener.
we can just simply establish a helpful school policy.
For example, during the class the teacher shall ask student to put their cell phone in front of the class, or near the teacher.
