Laptops should be allowed in class. It less time-consuming when note-taking, it boosts the student's motivation, and it allows the students to stay organized.

Con

But, students would memorize all the material better. i would implant in their brain if they spent more time writing it than typing it.

Not necessarily. Everyone learns differently. Plus, allowing laptops in class would save paper. Also, instead of carrying a bunch of textbooks around, students could carry only one laptop.

Con

The student can download a tracking device for it. And I would love someone try to steal a laptop. Plus, if the school issued laptops to each student, theft wouldn't be a problem.

Con

a tracking device only works if the computer has power. all you have to do is remove the battery. and plus most students know how to remove the tracking software for a computer. i rest my case

You could learn while playing CoD. Having your fun time during school will give you the time to study when you are home. If done right the teacher wouldn't even need to teach as the students won't listen or care until later, giving the teacher more time to do important things like count paper clips.

Yes I think laptops should be allowed in class because it saves paper and it helps the environment. Also teachers can teach students how to use software that is legal of course and teach student's how to use the internet and they can take notes and if they are hooked up to the schools net work the teacher can just go on their user name and check their work.

I will side with pro because I don't like the idea of carrying around a bunch of textbooks.
