21st Century Schooling
Our world is changing. Technology has advanced more than it was 10 years ago. Most school has stayed the same. Schools and teachers still teach with old books and old techniques. Some change has come. Certain schools updated with the technology, and their students use electronic devices for school. Unfortunately, some schools have not. Sometimes things are too expensive, but most times, things are too hard to grow out of. But that's why there's us. We're here to make a difference. We're here to urge on that change. We are the students, but no ordinary students - we're students of the 21st century. The world is not the same way it was 100 years ago, 50 years ago, or even 5 years ago. The world actually isn't the same as it was, just yesterday. With a new day, come new ideas, come new people, and comes change. If we have the technology, if we have the information, let us use it! Students should not have to lug around backpacks, if all the information in their items can fit into something that weighs 1.5 pounds. This device is called the iPad Mini. *Funding ways are being considered* Please support us (the students), join our petition, and let us change the world of education!
Students can carry around an iPad mini in their backpack, instead of all the notebooks, folders, planners, and such. Even the textbooks could be on this.
Also, the structure of the class work/home work could change. Everybody seems to be bombarded with homework, right now. Homework should be done in class, so the teacher is there to help, and there could be some instructions or tutorials on how to do the work at home, which could be "studying" or homework.
