Who cares about technology?

Why is Mrs. Wilson always talking about ways technology can help us in the classroom? As a student, do you think using technology in the classroom is important? Why or why not? Try to think past the simple reason of it being "cool."

  1. I think using technology in the classroom is good because you can look things up you didn't know or that aren't in a book. The only bad thing about using technology in a classroom is that there can be problems with the internet or apps. But you can do work, do research, and a lot of other amazing things with technology. I think that technology over all is a very good research.

    I think technology is a great thing to use in the classroom because you can do new things that you haven't done before with technology and you can do things you can't do without technology.

  3. Sam10- I think that technology in the classroom will help us and is important. I believe this because it will give us searching skills later on and that helps us get jobs. Technology is also important so that we learn to keep our notes organized.Technology is a vital part of the modern classroom and will give us great skills later on.

  4. I think technology is important and I think it is not important in lots of ways. One way why I think it is important is because you can look up stuff for projects and other things. One way I think its not important is because we have books with important information.- Bridger

    I think technology is important because it makes learning more interesting and fun. Without it we would be sitting in the classroom reading books and writing all day. With technology we are able to learn by watching videos and going on the internet. Also we are able to communicate with friends and study together online. Technology gives us the chance to start a worksheet at school and finish it at home.

  6. I think technology is important because when you get older and older it comes in handy for projects, reports, and even just homework or facts. St. Christopher's is very lucky to have such great technology devices that can help us understand things and even have fun. We are lucky to have computers and other technology at school because it can be really fun while being interesting. Technology is helpful in many ways.

  7. Yes, using technology is good for kids like us because it helps understand not only technology but many oter things like Microsoft Word which we will use a lot later on in life as a business man or as a fireman. We can also learn keyboarding and Internet safety.

    I think that having technology in the classroom is a great thing because you can find so much information on the internet. It's important because what if you can't find something in the dictionary or the encyclopedia then what wold you do?

  10. So far there have been an array of reasons to use technology and a few reasons not to use it. How can using technology broaden your view of the world? Think about something as simple as our cluster map...

    I think that technology is important because if you start a project you can end it on your computer at home and if you forget something at school it might be on the computer. If you have all of your all of your information on one computer and it crashes you can't get it back. Over all I think it is very useful..

  12. I do not think technology is important in the classroom. For me, technology is always messing up, and glitching. Another thing is it is so hard to find things with all those files and everything floating around. I feel like it is a whole lot easier to just right it out on a peace of paper. Many people disagree with me,but it is so much easier without technolgy!

    I think that technology in the classroom is important because we can easily to projects without looking in books for all of our information (wich would propably take a while). I also think it is important out of the classroom, like when we don't understand our homework we can email eachother about our homework.I also think that technology in the classroom is important because when you post a comment anyone in the world can see it.

  14. I think that technology is important because it is more interesting than books and paper. The downside is that it doesn't always work in your favor. Another thing is that people can hack into computer and steal things.-Tyler8

  15. Technology is good and bad in it's own ways like with a few clicks you can bring up any information for research but can't be looked up as fast as a book.Technology has it's ups and downs and it's quite a privilege that we have it.

  16. I think using technology is important because we will learn skills we will need throughout school, college, and for our jobs. It also might be more injoyable then looking through pages, and pages of our textbook. But by looking through a book you can become a better reader, writer, and speller. Computers also have many bugs, it can also expose you if you accidently give away you name or phone number or other personal data. But, I think using technology allows us to learn and have fun doing it.
