WHAT ARE SMART PHONES?<br /><ul><li>A smart phone is a phone that offers more than a regular cell phone.
Smart phones are seen as small computers which give you access to a lot of things compared to a regular cell phone, which is why they are also seen as a personal digital assistant.
Over the past few years smart phones have been improved to make life less complicated but they have a bad impact. </li></li></ul><li>Introduction<br /><ul><li>Yes I agree with the statement that smart phones affect productivity in the workplace but it also affects the communication not only in the workplace but also in our society.
People do not even socialize anymore as they find it better to communicate through smart phones.
These phones have also become a problem when it comes to education.</li></li></ul><li>How do smart phones affect productivity<br /><ul><li>Firstly smart phones keep can create a ‘burnout’ meaning you get too used to relying on your phone for everything that your brain can not work on its own.
They get very addictive because you make every excuse to just pick up your phone and start typing even though you know its not work related.
Most people tend to play with their phones by going into things such as twitter,facebook,youtube…instead of working.</li></li></ul><li>How smart phones affect communication in the work place<br /><ul><li>This is a serious issues as people do not communicate at all because they are busy typing on their smart phones and when you talk to them all they do is node their heads as if what you are saying to them is not important at all.
It is said that most of the people doing this in the workplace are the leaders of the business and this is bad as they become a bad example to staff, they sit in meeting and type all day
It has also become a bad habit when people are driving but keep on checking their phones for work related reasons when they are supposed to be focusing on the road</li></li></ul><li>THIS IS A LOOK AT HOW SMART PHONES AFFECT OUR DAILY LIVES<br />They also have a big impact on school kids as they prefer to play on their phones all say than pay attention to school work.<br />People do not even communicate anymore as they prefer to type on their phones all day.<br />Being on the phone while one is talking to you is rude.<br />
EFFECTS ON EDUCATION<br /><ul><li>Research has shown that since smart phones have arrived there has been a bigger percentage of children failing because of smart phones
Smart phones make it difficult for one to get information and pay attention in class.
People sit on their smart phones all day instead of studying and doing their school work.
‘Polluting classroom with disruptions’ meaning the constant texting and receiving messages and calls not only disrupts the the lecture butt it also interrupts the whole class.</li></li></ul><li>SOCIAL ENGAEMENT<br /><ul><li>People do not even know how to socialize anymore because they are so used to only socializing on smart phone.
Research has also shown that smart phones have destroyed many families as there had been no communication at al.
It is so rude when one is out with friend and you get people who play with their phones and not engage in fun activities
Many people have become anti-social and this is all because of smart phones.</li></li></ul><li>CONCLUSION<br /><ul><li>Research has shown that indeed smart phones has a negative effect when it comes to productivity in the workplace. More work could be done if only people could work and stop abusing their smart phones.
There has also been a lack of communication in the workplace and this can also be resolved by creating more team building weekends so that people could communicate and get to know each other so their could be better communication when it comes to the work environment.</li></li></ul><li>CONCLUSION<br /><ul><li>People have become anti-social which is a big problem because networking is one of the most important parts in one life.
The percentage of failures is increasing, life would be so lovely if everybody took their education seriously, education is so important .
smart pones have brained washed people into thinking their more important than anything in the world. Which is why I am against smart phones.</li></li></ul><li>REFRENCING<br /><ul><li>www.google.com
