Media & its Impact on student’s life. This is a very hot topic among the parents. Yes, it is an important issue of concern that Media has greater impact on students life. That’s why most of the parents are worried about their ward’s career. Parents don’t want that their wards should spend too much time in watching Cricket Matches (which are mostly telecast during examinations) movies, TV programmes mainly violent. Now, with the introduction of Smart Mobile phones, the excess use has become a headache for the parents.
To get rid of mobiles, C.B.S.E. took a very positive step towards it on 29th July, 2009 when a circular (Vide CBSE/AFF./CIRCULARS/2009) was served to all the affiliated schools of India by Joseph Emmanuel-Dy.Secretary (Affl.) C.B.S.E. As per the circular, the use of Mobile Phones definitely needs to be restricted in school environments. The Board is of the opinion that all stakeholders connected with school education such as students, parents, teachers and heads of institutes need to arrive at a consensus on the use of mobile phones in their schools and restricting its entry in the school campus. This is because mobile phones can be a serious cause of distraction, lack of concentration, anxiety, fear and sometimes even misuse. Even if the mobiles are on silent mode they can be a source of disturbance within the classroom as students can make use of Short Messaging Service (SMS) during the class or even during an assignment. The cameras which are a common feature now in most mobile phones can also be misused. The principal, teachers and other staff should also not be seen using the mobile in classrooms, playgrounds, common areas, laboratories and other parts of the school premises.
Yet, the use of smart mobile phone has tremendously increased in the student’s life even in small villages & towns. Because this is really a wonderful device like Aladin-ka-Chirag (used in olden days story) which can bring in you everything you can imagine. Undoubtedly, Smart Mobile phone has advance features to capture images, video, audio, SMS, radio FM, TV, porn sites, Facebook, Youtube, games, Music,What’s app, thousands of apps etc. to communicate with anybody (known or unknown) across the world within a friction of second, its just a button away.
