The Use of Computers in Class

Argument:  The Use of Computers in the Classroom.
Assertion/Claim:  Computers should not be relied upon in the classroom.
  • Students go beyond the boundaries of what they need in school.
  • Technology is expensive and the money spent for all these computers should be used somewhere else.
  • Training teachers and students to use the computers is not always easy, and is expensive and time consuming.
  • The internet is not always reliable, so if the internet crashes then the lesson plans for the day could be ruined.
Commentary:  Even though most of the internet is censored at school, many kids know that there are certain websites that you can go to so that you can get to unsafe websites, such as Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, and Twitter.
