Instead of cutting down trees and wasting all of the trees, we should all just use technology! Its easier just to get on a desk top , laptop , cell phone, i pod, i pad , or anything like that!!! I think that schools around the nation should each get their own laptop from the school to rent it out and take it back and forth from school to your house. The teacher would give students assignments on the computer and maybe even make their own website, blog, wiki, or a network that the teacher and students could get on everyday to do their assignments with like, math, fractions, spelling, reading, algebra, geometry, and a lot more. Todays technology lets you search the internet for research unlike a piece of paper, you can do your homework, and its more organized then a lot of papers lying around. You can just set the laptop somewhere and remember where it is instead of all the papers that you could lose in the wind. It is faster to look up information during research projects. It's also much easier to type in what you want than to look it up in a book. It might take a few days to find the information in a book, where on working with technology, you can edit quicker and easier.
Technology is motivating and fun=http://! There are games that teach children, virtual worlds give kids experiences that most would not normally have, digital storytelling allows kids to share their story, and all of these things are a lot of fun. It makes school more fun and interesting.
Technology prepares kids for the future. If you need it when you're a lawyer or something you can bring it right with you or you could skype people in foreign countries to talk to them. 90% of future jobs have not been invented yet and all of those will require technology use.
I think you should consider this to schools around the world!! maybe like Alaska, Texas, Florida, California, New Mexico and Iowa for sure!!! and it will help kids prepare for the future!!! If you decide to do this then I thank You kindly.
