Chicago kids talk about technology


How do you use technology in your schoolwork?

  • Sometimes we have to make a PowerPoint presentation at school. Other times we research on the computer or I type up a report. Megan
  • My school provided me with a laptop that I use to type assignments, do research, create keynote presentations and the laptop is also used daily in class. Sean
  • We work with Google Drive so that many people can work on the same document. Ariadna
  • We use Edmodo, a secured social learning network. It is where we share schoolwork and homework and discussions with our teachers and classmates. We get our homework and grades there, too. We also use Google Docs a lot for collaborative work and note-taking in class. Our textbooks are all online and can be accessed from anywhere we have a connection to the Internet. Christian
  • We look up stuff on our mini-laptops, like when we were learning about simple machines we went on and looked up the simple machines game. We could click on something that was a simple machine and we would have to do a mini-essay with like five questions.Alexis
  • I use technology to download assignments and collaborate with groups or partners. Sometimes my math teacher sets up an online meeting the day before a test so we can ask him sample problems we want help with. My history teacher, along with pretty much every other teacher I have, often posts the syllabus and assignments on her website. Isaac
