Blog Post 13

Children need the classrooms

For this blog post assignment I chose to do option two. Reading Stephanie Banchero's article My Teacher is An App I really enjoyed. This article shared facts of how more children are starting to do their schoolwork from home. Throughout this article an example is given about a boy doing his work from home. This vibe I felt was as if the child did not recieve the full amount of time needed to spend on the material because he was doing it from home.

I agree that some of our schoolwork should be able to be accessed and completed from our home, but I also am a firm believer in attending school both physically and mentally. I feel that this betters a child's chances of interacting socially with other students. I also feel that by attending school this helps children build social skills, by being able to ask and listen to questions of other students. I really enjoyed this article and I feel that it can help many educators understand the impact in which they have on children's lives.

  1. Hello Hunter I enjoyed reading your blog post. I also chose to read the article like you did. I have to say that agree with you, going to school is important. If I miss school, I usually stress the whole time I am out. I feel it is extremely important for elementary children to physically be there with a teacher. As children get older it is easier to do things at home. This class for example, we do most everything on our own.Everyone has their own opinion but I have to say I agree with you. I only saw one error. Great job!
