Are Chromebooks Helping Students?
At the beginning of this school year, all middle school students received a Chromebook. The Chromebooks have been a great help for homework, research,and for checking grades. Along with all the positive uses for the Chromebooks, also come some negative. Students will use the Chromebooks for all the wrong purposes, such as games,Youtube,and Emailing each other during class. When asked to study in class, a few students decided it was better to play games than study for tests. Some people even think they can email each other instead of looking at the docs from classroom. I personally think its ok to look at game websites before the bell rings in homeroom, but when they are playing video games instead of studying, you are going to be the reason that teachers won’t trust us. Mrs.Rohlfing says that she believes that the Chromebooks are affecting the students in a very positive way, but if we were to break her trust with what is expected, she would be very disappointed and she hopes that the same trust and respect she gives us, we give back to her. That would go for any teacher, and that is hopefully enough to get to you, we need to stop using our Chromebooks in the wrong ways.
