A grand majority of schools in the United States have students use a piece of technology like a Crombook or a Tablet and many others. But which are better Tablets or Textbooks in our high school? I have personally only used a textbook once. In the early 1980s was when the first computer was in a school to teach simple programming. Today if there were only a few computers in our school our learning system would be totally different.
The pros to having computers in our learning system is that computers can hold hundreds of textbooks on one device, plus homework, quizzes, and other files that means that we are not using as much paper and ink. But having computers or tablets means that they can be distractions. 87% of K-12 teachers believe that “today’s digital technologies are creating an easily distracted generation with short attention spans.” Also, having online textbooks cost less than having to print the textbooks out like the average print textbook costs $70 but a 6 year subscription is between $45-$55. But not all homes do not have good internet that means that if they have homework online they can't get it done. Also computers and tablets can freeze, or get hacked and the repairs for a computer or a tablet can get expensive.
Overall I think that having technology in our learning system has its pros and cons but I would go with having technology in our learning system but I think we should have some ways to help the people that can't afford good internet.
