"Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, The teacher is the most important. " said Bill Gates. Using technology at school distracts children from what the teacher is trying to say. Instead of paying attention to the teacher they usually go on quizlet, Vocabulary. Com, Playbuzz, Etc. Put your hand up if you have done that before. See what I mean! Now compare this to if we use paper. You can't search up anything on paper, And would have to listen to the teacher. I mean nothing can go wrong with using paper! And plus you get better handwriting!

While I agree technology should be somewhat limited in school, Definitely phones, Since they greatly contribute to our decreasing attention span, I do not think technology should be limited completely. It does more harm than good, Since technology is very widespread and impossible to avoid nowadays. Students can also be shown how to use technology to make an effective search that adds to their knowledge and awareness of the world. That ability is a crucial part of modern life that must be learned, And because of that and the times we live in, Technology needs to stay in schools in order to keep them up to date and interesting to students.
Everything is technology - the wheel, Books, Ink, The process of making books which I assume involves wheels and ink.
