Technology is destroying children's education.
Debate Rounds (4)
I define destroy as "put an end to the existence of (something) by damaging or attacking it."
I define technology as "machinery and equipment developed from the application of scientific knowledge."
Technology isn't destroying education.
Look at education. Is it being destroyed by "machinery and equipment developed from the application of scientific knowledge"? No. Fire is not technology, at least not in this definition. As you can see it is not technology that destroys education, but this random fire the blackness in the background caused.
"In my opinion being..." Exactly. It's your opinion, not a matter-of-fact.
" So yes technology is hurting us kids in the world." And you need to prove kids=education. You have failed.
" teachers barely know how to operate them to teach us. " Nothing has proven this.
"So how is technology helping us in school?" One word: computers.
My opponent has failed to show how technology destroys education. I have shown fire destroys education, not technology. He has failed.
Second you said" And you need to prove kids=education." People don't even have to pay attention to see how most of the technology these days is hurting kids education. It is AS PLAIN AS DAY to notice this. It hurts them from the way they spell to the way they speak to the way they approach different situations.
Another thing you said " Nothing has proven this." Well I experience this EVERYDAY in my own classroom. How these teachers don't even know how to use these things. They go to training for it and they still don't know. So why would they(the administrators) have a person(meaning the teacher) TRY to teach us kids how to use these items and they can't even use them their selves?
Also while the teacher is explaining how to use these items such as the IPad, the student are using different items and apps such as IMessage to talk to other students and the teacher doesn't even notice it.
And computers may help SOME of the time, but not all of the time because most students only use the computers in school, while the teacher is watching but outside of school the students are only using the computers for entertainment.
What about during the summer? Children are not using the computers during the summer for education. During the summer most kids don't learn anything NEW.
Social Media is not helping us kids educationally . Not at all.
"Not all all" is pro's crucial mistake. He contradicts himself with the "sometime" he stated above.
Let me state a few of computer's uses.
--it can search up information within a few seconds
--you can contact your teachers within a few seconds
--a calendar can setup as a reminder as to what to do
--online social websites can help you interact with your friends
--bash into a bullies head :P
In conclusion technology can help in some ways.
Social media is a good thing too.
I was saying that the average kids abuse this. Also i was saying they don't use the computer's as a way to learn anymore.
If they did the children would be much smarter.
You were getting off topic. Maybe you were trying to change the topic because you know I'm right. I was never saying that technology was bad. I was saying that the average child uses the technology for ONLY entertainment.
Online classes can help kids, especially if the parent admonishes their children to do so. I have proved in cases with strict parents, technology helps children.
