10th Grade Student, Chesapeake High School
Teachers have also been able to have more freedom creating fun lessons to keep students engaged when learning new concepts. My teachers have been implementing programs such as OneNote, Voice Thread, and Mathspace into our learning, which allows us to share our work with our teachers and classmates and to be able to receive feedback more directly. Our teachers are also making an effort to place us in small groups when we need more support or if we want to move ahead.
Having the ability to access the internet helps students to learn new and relevant material. Having books that have information from as long as 10 years ago is not preparing us to become 21st century learners, which every school should be trying to make us achieve. I love that we have access to Techbooks that are updated and relevant.
Having access to other information outside of outdated books gives us an opportunity to explore deeper. With our generation, proper use of technology will continue to develop and as time passes, more jobs will be technology related, so the addition of technology in schools is only necessary in a modern learning environment. I am excited that BCPS will continue to implement computers into everyday learning to better prepare us for entering the 21st century world.
