In the world that we currently live in, technology is a very vital factor. With each passing day a new software or gadget is being brought into the market that serves to improve our lives in one way or another and make it much easier and also to advance an already existing software or gadget.
Since our students are inseparable from their gadgets we, teachers, should apply efforts to put the latter to use. It sounds sensible and inevitable.

PLAGIARISM

My opponent has plagiarized her entire first round from the following

Con

Well, since my opponent didn't offer any of her own arguments, I have nothing to rebut. I was supposed to debate her, not the author of the blog she posted. Having said that...

Argument:

Technology in the Classroom is a distraction and impedes the learning process.

Students who have access to laptops have a tendency to become more distracted, and therefore learn less than their counterparts that don't have the same internet access. [1] Therefore, we should reduce the amount of technology in our classrooms.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro offered no arguments of his own, and thus did not fulfill his burden of proof. Pro also plagiarized and forfeit the debate. Con on the other hand gave a source for the information he took, did not forfeit, and offered an original argument. For these reasons, Con is awarded conduct points, reliable sources points, and convincing arguments points.
