The real question is should our school participate or not? Technology has been around since the 1860s. Technology has many effects in our environment and has helped develop more advanced economies in our society. The use of technology can enhance and deteriorate the lives of many people especially students. In my personal opinion, I think our school should participate in “ Shut your Screen Week” The reasons I think our school should participate include using technology such as cell phones during class can cause distraction, the use of too much technology can be overwhelming, Spending hours on a screen can lead to certain health issues such as poor eyesight, and by decreasing the amount of technology usage it
As you see children are restless and need good health. Some people think that education is the strong suit of our society, but if youth are our future let them grow up in a flowing community and make their community fun. They say the nation is free, so why do adults boss our youth through freedom and isolation. Don’t be a mean school that sets children on isolation because of their attempts at talking for fun, even though there are times for that, without recess talking will grow worse. Make them stop, bring back the fun at school, as I say, Make Schools Great Again with
Most students say that they would be better off without recess and go straight to class after lunch, but this is not true. Even though they say that, they do not really mean it. They would get overwhelmed rapidly with the extra classes. Many schools already started to eliminate recess. That is not good for the students.
According to Connected but Alone by Sherry Turkles she states, “We sacrifice conversations for more connections.” This shows how technology can distract adolescents and not be able to develop face to face conversations. There are also distractions that are time consuming. As stated from the text, Is Google Making Us Stupid by Nicholas Carr he states, “If were distracted, we understand less, remember less, and learn less.” This shows when on screen time adolescents have less learning skills for the further future. Distractions take teens away from family and school work. According to the Article Growing up Digital from Allison Miller’s perspective she states, “I’ll be reading a book for homework and I’ll get a text message and pause my reading and put down the book, pick up the phone to reply to the text messages, and then 20 minutes later realize, ‘Oh, I
channels” if we want change, however, having tried, it is now understood that these “channels” change nothing and are very ineffective. We have tried numerous proposals such as opening up council meetings for all students to better communication throughout the VPI student body. Although, just as the results of all the other attempts by going through “legitimate channels” our proposal was struck down. The article also offers a possible solution to prevent future demonstrations from occurring through the creation of a “committee composed of students from various segments of student life at VPI”. The committee would then meet with administrators every month “to air their views” and this would help diminish the feeling of students who believe they are not represented (Evidence 1: Ed Miller, “What caused demonstrations,” April 1970).
They are discouraged when they hear "no." Screen time has a way of teaching, and if the answer is not right, it will show you exactly how to do it, and/or give examples of the correct way. Not only is this visual, but it is also being heard. Techonolgy is a good idea for those who have little patience like myself. "More media content is designed for children every year."
This kind of lifestyle is dangerous, and students become exposed to different kinds of risks. Students can develop health problems, such as not being able to sleep, or develop depression. Therefore, schools, not only in the United States, should start at a later time in the morning. Medical
My vision for America is to go back and live in the days with lower taxes, lower obesity rate, and a happier life at home. No more divorced parents, no more having to ask a crush out via text, no more wishing that there was a way for kids to go outside and play instead of playing their new electronics. It’s hard to think that my children will have to experience so many different things than I did. They will never know what it is like to have to call on a home phone or have to sit through what the parents chose for the show on t.v because we didn’t have our own television in our rooms. My children will have to be the saviors of the pollution, the brains for our education, and the ones who carry on to try and love America like we
Both students and teachers can now find facts within seconds. This can be very useful when explaining and debating topics.” As we all know, kids in this day in age have so much power in the palm of their hands they can get any piece of information they need in seconds and they should be able to use that power. Another reason kids should be able to use their smartphones in class is that teachers now are able to create assignments which kids can complete on their phones. Of course, this brings up a completely different argument which has some very good points too. What if a child decides not to work on the assignment and uses their phone inappropriately when they aren 't supposed to?
Introduction and background of the issue Video games, use of computers and Wii games are extensively used by the youth of every nation. These new world accessories have become a menace for the health of children and this issue has been studied in many researches. Researches also highlighted that excessive use of video, computer and Wii games have detrimental effects on the health of children (RSK, 2014). However, Wii and Xbox games keep children pretty much in action but there are a lot of games which keep the children sitting for hours with poor posture. Many such issues have caused severe back problems in children and thus, several researches concluded that playing too much video games and spending half or more of the day in front of video games and screens causes psychological problems along with physical problems in children.
Say No To Screen Free Week Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. Children have many practical purposes that they would need to use “screens” technology for. So by eliminating a valuable learning tool you are jeopardizing kids learning and making a drastic change in their effective daily lives. According to PBS LearningMedia research, 74% of teachers surveyed responded that using classroom technology motivates students to learn. (kurzweil,2015).Technology in the classrooms allows kids to take their education into their own hands with hands on learning.Screen Free Week will allow that many kids learning will begin at school and end at school, but if you say no children will be able to learn freely anytime with a touch of a screen.
The resulting distractions can have deadly consequences, as when cellphone-wielding drivers and train engineers cause wrecks...these urges can inflict nicks and cuts on creativity and deep thought, interrupting work and family life”, (Rechtel). People are not only becoming stressed, but addicted to technology. A week away from screens will very much help break or decrease this addiction. Many people feel more productive because of technology, and their ability to “multitask”; however, Rechtel presents
Additionally, if this issue continues in the life of an adolescent, it can bring a great deal of diseases in the future. Moreover, increasing early death rates in a drastic fashion. Overall, obesity is a severe problem our community faces today. Correspondingly, an incorrect caloric balance is the obvious contributing factor for obesity, meaning more calories
Schools have been providing sports for years, and had students enjoying them with their families and friends. According to many people they want to get rid of sports to focus on their academic skills than athletic skills to help them in the real world with businesses. Therefore, schools should shut down sports to cut down their bills, bring up teacher salaries, and have more educational programs to help them succeed in their business life. Although Schools are always trying to raise money for superior tools in class, it would help if the school closed down the athletics to gain more money for academic needs. If they shut down the school sports they would be able to have more students passing classes and getting better grades that would help with their schooling (Ripley 10).
Introductory Paragraph School sports have been a tradition for many years, however many people think it interferes with student education. Studies have shown that without after school activities, students grades have increased. Therefore, schools should eliminate sports to help students reach their academic potential, provide money directly toward education, and get parents more involved with their kids learning. Body Paragraph #1 As anyone who has been through college knows, students that do well in school are more likely to reach their career goals. According to an article written by Amanda Ripley, Ernest Singleton, the superintendent of Premont Independent School District located in Texas, canceled sports in order to decrease their academic failure rate (11).
