I use my cell phone for quick communications, calendar events, alarm clock, stopwwatch and countdown clock, emails, IM's, sending out homework assignments, and helping my students with quick questions. I have found my cell phone to be an incredibly useful tool. As with every other technology there are always positve and negative uses for gadgets. I think texting with cell phones would be an interesting method for students to collaborate on projects. There is a place called "CHA CHA" that you can text and ask questions. It is amazing. STudents could use this information when doing projects. Once again, there is a chance of abuse. I was amazed as to how many people in Bmagladesh used cell phones. There was a billboard ad with a child sitting ontop of a water buffalo texting his friend.
Thanks, Jack... I don't know if students have cell phones in Jalalabad. But the embassy has asked about this so we'll see how they respond. Here's what some people wrote, but they're not GCE students ... hopefully the students will answer on the site as well: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kabul-Afghanistan/US-Embassy-Kabul/34...!/topic.php?uid=34734118909&topic=16097
If they do have cell phones, perhaps we can discuss how to use them for education purposes... great idea!
Hi Anna. I was amazed at how many people in Bangladesh have cell phones. They are very cheap there. I believe that cell phones are intricate in spreading freedom. You know that our First Amendment right of speech has helped make America stronger. I hope the people of Afghanistan get to enjoy that experience.
Hello dear Anna!
This is Ihsanullah”hussainzai”from Tajrobawee high school/CETC computer lab.
I hope that you’re fine and healthy.
I am really cherish and thankfully to your nice information and discussion.
So it was very nice information when I read it.
We batter know that the mobile phone is very an important in the world and universal.
And also every one needs for this and it found the high famous in the world either.
We use mobile phone for make the short connection with others to solve our problems and troubles.
And now it has much importance in our society because if some one front with problems so they can to use it to solve the problems.
Mobile or cellular phones are now an integral part of modern telecommunications. I use my cell phone for calling, calculating, transferring money, for time, internet, camera , alarm clock, entertainment, and many other such works, I thing mobile is one of the important tool in our live such as a luxury car, home, computer etc. Perhaps the greatest benefit to owning a cell phone is the security of knowing that they can call for assistance anytime or anywhere they need too.
On the other hand, they have some disadvantages like initiating violation of privacy, unnecessary wastage of money, talking on mobile phones while driving and emission of radiation from the handsets which is allegedly harmful for health. I would like to argue for the advantages of mobile phones which outweigh their disadvantages. But the main feature of mobile phones is instant access' which makes them the most exclusive devices for communication.

Thanks from your nice and pleasant information that you added
As you mentioned about mobile which is 100% necessary for human being, for example you have essential work in Pakistan but you are in Afghanistan and you need to inform some one in five minutes, so if you go to Pakistan you will reach in five hours, so what shall you do then we have facility of mobile in one minute we can inform some one for necessary doing. on the other hand we are away from our friends some of in America and some of in Canada, so we can ask by Mobile
At the end are those who listen to songs from mobile, so they wast their life and they are in the red
Thanks Shughlah khan from Rotary High school
