Cellphones On Lockdown

Luckily when I was in high school, the only cell phone people had was the ghetto pay-as-you-go, $4/min, emergency only, parent monitored, zero reception mobiles. The times have clearly changed. Nowadays, you see kindergartens walking around with the hottest RAZR and even bluetooth headsets.
In high schools across South Africa, compact steel safes have been installed to lock up students cell phones, iPods and other distracting gadgets during class hours. Teachers are hoping that this new lock-up system will help students stay focused on their textbooks and away from their myspace pages. Do you think this is the solution? Should technology be banned from the classroom or utilized for its handy capabilities?
