general question

What are 3 pros and 3 cons for technology in children's classrooms?

I really cant think of any other than that there aren't much computers in the classrooms(maybe like 1 or 2)

  1. This question is too general to be answered intelligently.

    What age are the children?
    What kind of technology?
    How much is this technology used in the classroom?

  3. Pros
    Everyone needs to be computer literate.
    Computers can help children learn math and other subjects.
    Fine motor skills are further developed.

    Cons
    The computers would take away time from teacher-student interactions.
    Technology is expensive; the money could be better spent on professional teachers and aides who give individual attention.
    Children need to be actively involved in their learning, not passive recipients of canned computer programs.

  4. Pros:

    - Needed skill for job in future
    - There are many websites designed for learning other subjects, like IXL, that are accessible through a computer
    - Typing is a very useful skill

    Cons:

    - Can easily cause a distraction
    - Generally not as individualized
    - Can lessen public-speaking and human interaction skills as these are not used when using a computer.

    These are general answers for a general question, so depending on other factors this may vary.
