My vision of school for the future has a lot more technological advances than the school system today. All binders and notebook paper will be thrown away, and the laptops will play a more prominent role. Of course, teachers will have to trust their students to get their schoolwork done, but that means the child will have to be responsible enough to get the information from the teacher. I believe that changing to this would be great to the individual because he or she will not have to worry about keeping up with multiple binders. Also, the teacher could just post notes on the computer where they could store them on their own computers. I also believe that teachers will begin to make their students take test and quizzes online. This will take away some stress from the teachers because they will not have to check each paper one by one, but they will have to check for errors occasionally . School days will be cut short to 4 days a week; therefore, there will be 3 day weekends. This takes stress off the teachers as well as the students because it takes one day off of school and adds one more day to planning. The blog will be used more frequently. Instead of turning in your homework to the teacher, all you have to do is post the homework on the site. The advances in the school system will not only be good for school purposes, but for society as well. With all of the advances, there will be less paper used; therefore, we will not have to cut down as many trees and our biome can continue to thrive. I also believe that with the technology advancing, that students will become more interested in learning just because of the new style of learning. With many different methods of teaching, students will not get bored with the typical pencil and paper and will have a fun and easy time with their computers.
