Laptops in Class

PrefaceI am auditing a class over the winter break, and I've noticed that the professor prohibits the use of laptops in class. When asked why, he cited their potential for distraction. I am interested in having a debate on this topic, since I have also heard educators laud the things that laptops can enable them to do with students. I think this should be an enlightening discourse.There is a 2,000 ELO minimum needed to vote on this debate. You must h...

Philosophy and the humanities are underrated in education.

Danielle
RoyLatham

I would like to thank my esteemed opponent in advance for accepting this debate. I look forward to what I hope will be a very thought provoking and insightful discussion :) For all intents and purposes, I believe the resolution is pretty straight-forward. By underrated, I will be arguing that increasing the focus in humanities and/or philosophy in education, particularly higher education, would be beneficial to society. I will contend that there is an increasing problematic...

While college IS the better route for many students, should it be "thrust" upon high-school students like it is today? I believe that society needs to stop viewing college as so necessary for success in today's world....

Kids should have smartphones! The reason I'm saying that kids should have smartphones is that it fun to learn with technology. They could also communicate with their classmates. And e-mail homework or class work to their teacher. They could also use it for social media to make new friends. So I think that kids should have smartphones....

We should not teach students how to write in cursive.

We shouldn't be teaching students cursive in school anymore. Why? it's out-dated, outmoded, and wastes too much time. Let's face it, nobody writes out long, hand-written documents out anymore for any realistic, serious purposes - at least, not like they did in the past. Yes, cursive has some use today - namely, signatures, but who says we need cursive for signatures? You can sign your name any which way you want - I, for example, choose to print instead of use cursive. Second, cursive is s...

should teachers be paid more?

Teachers are very important to society and I believe that their salaries should be raised. In the United States, teachers are paid between $39,580 and $75,279. Despite the salaries of our teachers, our country"s students are lagging behind other countries in test scores. Teachers are unappreciated even thought they have the most important jobs; educating the next generation. Raising teacher"s pay would emphasize how we value education in this country. American schools have become a ha...

it's dumb because we should be allowed to use locks on lockers because, including we girls have private things in our lockers people don't need to see and know about. Then also locks on lockers will decrease the number of theft's in schools....
