Technology in schools



Currently, my high school is working on requiring every student to either bring a computer or check one out from the school.  Similarly, others school are also working on providing every student with access to a computer and internet. Some people believe students will abuse this privilege and access non-educational material while being at school. It also creates exposure for child predators and cyber bulling 

However, having access to a computer is also a good thing. Students can get instant answers to questions they otherwise would have been scared to ask and have wider access to information from all over the world. This means that students have the opportunity to learn skills they would not have otherwise.

I want to hear your opinion about technology being integrated into school systems. Do you agree or disagree with this?

  1. Computers are almost absolutely necessary in order to do school work these days. With computers being available to students and teachers wanting the students to only focus on school-related materials, colleges have adapted a program where they can "blank" out computer screens if students try to access their Facebook pages or anything non-school related. I thought this was interesting.
