Previously, before the 1:1 laptop program has started, I had many concerns of bringing a computer to school. Since my computer was very new at that time, and that I worked hard all summer enough to buy this computer, I was a bit hesitant to bring my computer to school. I had to worry about what I’ll have to do when it breaks, or when it gets stolen, and this is not only me who was worrying, also my parents. Although High School students can take care of them selves (to some extent), there is always an ‘if’ and it will be too late after an incident happens. In addition, I was concerned if I can cope to the new system. As everybody says, Junior year in High School can be very challenging for most of us, and I thought it’ll be hard to deal with a new system of learning.
Challenges of Distraction
If we are connected to the web, it is fairly obvious that many of us will be tempted to be distracted by Facebook or Youtube. But so far, I haven’t been encountering that problem, probably because I am pretty focused in class, and there is almost no time to go on these sites because there is too much to do! So, in order to overcome the challenges of distraction, classes shouldn’t be dull that makes people go onto other sites not connected to the class.
