Since they have this privilege to not carry around heavy books, but use tablets. Our modern world is changing; the development of technologies are making our lives better and smarter. However, many people do not like young students carrying a tablet as their textbooks. Despite the opposition of tablets being used as a textbook, this essay will go ‘for’ for the tablets as textbooks for young students range from elementary to high school seniors.
While the educational system does prepare students for the academic stress of college, it does not qualify students to become young, successful adults and survive in the real world. Most of these students pass through too many years during their high school lives feeling like they don’t measure up, and most kids graduate only knowing if they’re good at school or not. The educational system is flawed and it does not prepare students to become successful adults. Being a successful adult does not mean being ridiculously rich, but to live comfortably and to do what you love in the business world. Most adults in today 's world have jobs that stress them out so much to the point where they despise going to work every day.
Even though it might be expensive to switch to healthier food, junk food should not be allowed in schools. Childhood obesity is becoming more prevalent partly due to the food children are feed in schools, school food is what what fuels children in order to get through their day, and healthy eating habits start early on. Obesity is becoming more prevalent
Cellphones in Classrooms Debate Cellphones in the classroom? Why debate over that? Couldn’t we keep the same method we have used for many years? Well, you’ll find out why soon enough. People are starting to suggest that using cell phones as a tool in classrooms will lower the amount of money spent on school supplies.Since our technology is evolving so much and has already evolved in many ways; learning won’t be such a hassle.Others are suggesting that it would benefit how much a student pays attention.Others say it allows student/parent contact without any trouble.Even though cell phones are banned in many schools they can be a very useful tool.Cell phones should be allowed to be used in school because the price on school supplies would be less of an expense, and students would be more likely to participate.In some cases of emergency cell phones would be better than waiting in a line for one phone.
The schools that have no homework have a better boat. In other words, schools with no homework do not have better test scores. In the article “20 Pros and Cons of Homework.” on Vittana.org the author explains how how homework only creates negative attitudes towards schools; “Survey after survey has found that the only thing that homework does is create a negative attitude toward schooling and education in general.” Students receive a great deal of homework each night but yet all it does is create a negative attitude towards school. If homework was eliminated then students might have a more positive attitude towards school. This would cause students to perform better academically since they think of school in positive ways and want to excelle.
The world is changing more and more every day due to technological advances, and it is important for schools to change also. In the beginning of the 2000’s era, technology has improved in a way that no one thought was possible. Information about everything is at the tips of our fingertips; whether it be from an iPhone, MacBook, or any other tablet device. Many adults at the board of education are hesitant to changing the learning process by switching from textbooks to tablets because they are so new and they are not sure how it will affect learning. It is important for schools to switch from textbooks to tablets while providing every student with a tablet (the 1:1 idea), for multiple reasons, especially because the world is changing when it comes to technology, and it is important to change with it to improved learning for students.
Nowadays, with the increase in the use of technology everywhere, people started to fear that technology might someday rule the world. For instance, several schools are now using laptops instead of books. They basically started distributing laptops that have the entire course notes downloaded on it. This was done in order to avoid sending the students carrying heavy backpacks with all the books to the schools. This is indeed a very effective way of teaching as it basically saves time, paper and many more.
“It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure” (said by Bill Gates). This quote tells us that success should be celebrated but failure should lead to teaching lessons. In the case of education, textbooks would be represented as a success and technology should be shown as a failure. Technology is one of the biggest failure of education and it should not replace the backbone to education which is textbooks. Technology like tables should not replace textbooks in k-12 schools because they can cause problems in health, they take a lot of training to be able to use and students could get very off task very easily when using tablets.
Children attend school to learn in order to have a better life but schools are failing. School are falling to guide children to have a better life, they are not teaching them or providing them with a healthy meal which causes obesity and in the long run many health damaging diseases. A meal is important, it is the fuel the body uses to function therefore, it should not be taken as unimportant. The better the meal the better results the body will give you, according to the article Livestrong healthy eating is actually proven to improve academic performance. So, school should start focusing on providing healthy, nourishing lunches to students; this should be done by preparing school lunches from scratch, using freshly grown crops when preparing the food and by investing more money on school food.
They don’t think schools should still be selling it, and some people are even suggesting that there should be no junk food in school vending machines, this includes cookies and chips. Although some junk food can be unhealthy, schools should continue to sell it because kids need to learn how and should be able to make their own decisions, junk food can provide energy and is healthy for a student’s ability to stay focused, and there are not enough sugars and carbohydrates in school lunches and they need to be due to the reason they are a necessary part of nutrition. Students need to learn how and should be able to make their own decisions. “Students like freedom of choice.” explained Margaret Johnson an educator at a high school in New Mexico. So if the school sells both healthy food and junk food it will give students a choice.
