The school should go back to books for students. Even though grading might be easier on the teacher, many students struggle with focus, which can make the overall learning experience more difficult.

In many classes, teachers have a hard time getting their students to pay attention because instead of participating in class, many students are playing games and logging into social media, which leads to bad grades because they are missing things that the teacher is saying. Academic success is one of the school’s goals, but it cannot achieve that success when the students are constantly distracted.

Also, some students deal with pain from looking at the screen. It can cause headaches, eye pain, and sleepiness, which leads to students needing to take breaks from class; making learning harder on the student.

In classes like math, the teachers have to teach a subject that is very “hands-on”. Math and science for example need to be actively taught, and actively paid attention to.

Another issue with using chromebooks for school work is cheating. Students have full access to almost any information they need to complete a homework assignment, class assignment, or a quiz. Students can also contact each other through email, making it easy to share answers.

Lastly, many students at home are constantly using technological devices, and do not get much human interaction, and school would be the one place where human interaction would happen. But with chromebooks, the teachers are now putting another screen in front of students, decreasing human interaction even more. Jie Gao, a professor of computer science, believes a computer is not beneficial to classroom learning.

“Education fundamentally is about productive interaction between teachers and students. Such interactions can not be replaced by a computer,” Gao said.

What he is saying is that learning happens with interaction and a computer cannot replace that.
