This paper explains that electronics have proven constantly to improve the learning process in the schools and equip the learners with the ability to adapt to the modern economy. However, the author continues, there are negative issues surrounding the use of electronics and especially when they are not monitored properly such as chatting on social networks while in school. The paper underscores that school directors and administrators must limit extraneous electronic devices from the classroom that are causing an overload thus inhibiting the learning process.

From the Paper:

"When different devices and electronics have been brought into schools, definitely the entire learning process will be affected because different students and even teachers will become excited and forget the reason why they in the institution. Students will begin playing computer games, listen to funny music, steal from the other students, and all sorts of issues surrounding the use of electronics . As a result, the learning institutions will become involved in other different issues that need to be addressed instead of promoting the learning experience. As a result, this will make our schools irrelevant since the targets and learning objectives will never be realized.
"Excess electronics becomes an overload especially when students are allowed to bring their personal electronic devices in the class and start disorienting the others. This affects the learners who cannot afford the devices psychologically and as a result the entire learning process is affected. That being the case, the is the need to ensure there are ways of filtering unnecessary electronic devices in order to ensure our schools achieve their missions and objectives in providing students will quality and yet useful education that results in nation building."
