Teachers should use technology in the classrooms

Teachers should embrace the use of technology in and out of the classroom. With all the technology that is out today, it allows for students to learn much easier.

For teachers to explore their options and pick more technology-friendly material would be a great privilege to us students and we should also not abuse it.

It’s really about both students and teachers coming together and realizing that there is technology out there to help us out and it should be utilized here at Cerritos College.

As an alternative to the heavy traditional textbooks, eBooks are a great way for students to use the technology that they may already have.

Most students on class take multiple classes that have one or two textbooks required for the course, those add up.

It’s tough for students to carry around two or three textbooks each day, and switch out the different textbooks for the ones that they need at the time.

Electronic devices are light-weight and don’t take up as much space on a desk as traditional textbooks do.

To have a big textbook plus a notebook is a little much on the small desks that are in most of the classrooms on campus.

With TalonNet also available to teachers, having lectures online not only helps students out at home but in the classroom as well.

If students were allowed to use laptops or iPads in class would be a lot more convenient. As would being able to see both notes and lectures on one screen, side-by-side.

As students it is important to remember to be responsible if given this use of technology.

Using a cell phone during class time is a huge distraction.

If asking for the chance to use these other technologies in class, one should take it.

High school days are over, it’s time to step up and be responsible. Use technology to your best benefit that way you can do well and get out of community college and move further into your future.

And as for teachers, ask students in your classes what works best for them. Reach out to them.

The 21st century has so much to offer us, it’s about time we take some advantage of it.
