Definition…. a smartphone is a device that lets you make telephone calls, but also adds in features that you might find on a personal digital assistant or a computer--such as the ability to send and receive e-mail and edit Office documents, for example.
ARGUMENTS……I disagree with statement : “Research has found that smart phones are affecting productivity, communication in the work place, social engagement, and have an effect in education”. to some extend because:• Smartphones have improved communication to the fact that the speed of which data and information are transmitted is really high and the result is just shown in a matter of second. Like sending an e- mail. And this is useful tool in the work place because interviews can be held on Smartphones, documents and application can be submitted just in a matter of a click.• Smartphones help people to socialize without going and sitting on a computer the whole days. Some people are naturally shy but not when it comes to Smartphone because they help them keep on truck and be part of the whole group.
However when it comes to education, Smartphone can helpstudent have access to their document and library from any part of the world but also, Smartphone are too destructive and addictive. Student my spend the whole day on a Smartphone then at the end of the day the wont have enough time left to dotheir school work and keep it for another day. Besides that, they say: “habit is a second nature” student’s spelling become badly as they are used to text messages.
