Technology in School
In the past few years technology has advance rapidly and has reached people all over the world. It is used every day by everyone. Whether it is at work, at home, or school, everyone has some type of access to technology and might even use it without knowing. Doctors need it, police officers need it, lawyers need it, engineers need it, teachers need it, students need it, basically everyone needs it, but yet still some teachers are against its use by students. Who can judge them? Some students don’t use technology appropriately. But there are other students, like myself, that need and use technology according to the schools guidelines. Students at Empire High School (Source A) have started out the year with no text books. Instead, the school issued a laptop computer to each of their students because they believe that the electronic materials will get students more engaged in learning. I personally believe that this won’t only help them learn, but it will also make life easier for them. For example, simple technologic electronics such as a calculator is a great help for students when they need assistance in subjects like math. This helps student work faster, better, and most of the time they are able to get their work correct the first time. But this is a problem for students that get used to using calculators because they are not able to answer a simple math question given by their teacher. I also believe that schools or teachers should allow students to use technology because technology will benefit a student in different aspects of their life. For example, if there is a student that has all honor classes, they are most likely to carry several books for each class and will probably have to spend a lot of money in those books if he was a college student. Now, if that student was allowed to take and use eBooks in class, it would help him prevent future back pains from the weight of those books, it will save the student and their parents a lot...
