Are Chromebooks A Good Idea Or A Bad Idea?

Are Chromebooks A Good Idea Or A Bad Idea?
By David McKinney Jr.

I have interviewed several students to see their opinion on Chromebooks. This is what they say:

Thomas Koenig: Horrible Idea.
  • Kids are irresponsible.
  • It gives them the opportunity to play games during class.
Andrew Luewe: Good Idea
  • Everything you need for school is right in your Chromebook.

David Lopez: Good
  • Don’t have to write a lot on paper.
  • Don’t get lots of papers.

Santiago Gutierrez: Bad Idea
  • No point.
  • Instead of Air conditioning in upstairs classrooms, the school is spending money on these Chromebooks.

Daniel Brunie: Good Idea
  • We are going into the Technology age of the 21st century.
  • They are good for learning.

Devyn Chan: Ok Idea
  • Good work for students.
  • Helps teachers trust us.

Essa Laradji: Waste
  • Good in a way, but we could have air conditioning upstairs.
  • We need to stay cool in order to concentrate!
  • Extra: Not all classes use Chromebooks.

So, as you can see, some students think that Chromebooks are a good idea, and some think that it was a bad idea. But both are excellent votes.
