Technology And Writing

If you take out your phone and get it taken away, you take out your laptop to take notes and the teacher says “no, put it away and get out a sheet of paper!” New research indicated that kids that take notes on a laptop, or other device, helps the student remember. When the students type they have to pay attention to what they are typing about. 2,462 educators took a survey and it was largely agreed that the technology helps the child or young adult to extend their creativity.  96% of the teachers believe that the technology makes the class more involved. An Anonymous teacher said, “ In my experience, online writing encourages students to be more deliberate and thoughtful.”  What are your thoughts? Comment below.
