Shut Down Week Debate
Students depend on technology too much. I think we should shut down our computers and iPads for a week. Students depend on technology for homework and getting the information we need faster instead of using their brains or looking it up in the library.
Students need to be more active. Although at school you only go out for recess, but you can be active with your homework and work hard in class and not depend on a computer or technology for the answers. Technology is a cheat for some student you can look up answers so you don’t have to think about it.
What really makes us intelligent isn’t our ability to find lots of information quickly. It’s our ability to think deeply about that information. You will never think deeply if you’re always googling, texting, and surfing. Being on your phone or computers does not help your body our your brain.
Do you think we should shut down the computers at school? Being on computers does not help us all the time, yes its nice not having to think for yourself once in awhile but it is not like that all the time. That is why we go to school is to get ready for the future and for our career, to be able to think on our own.
My decision is that the we shut down the computer and ipads at school. We need to know how to think on our own. If we don't look up from technology we could miss out on a lot of things.
