EDITOR’S NOTE: With the world continuing to shrink thanks to improved communications and transportation, students can no longer wait until college or job training to think globally.

As technology is advancing in the classroom, students are changing from books to Google Chrome Books. I appreciate that technology is used within the classroom, however, what would a classroom without books be like? Do you think it would enhance a child's education? What happens when the Google Chrome Book does not load due to low internet connection? On the other hand, having computers in the classroom is very benefitial as stated in this quote, "“Technology closes the gap on single student engagement and allows one-on-one teaching simultaneously with the entire class. It brings collaboration not only with the students in the four walls, but with the world, with the use of the internet, and microphones and webcams classrooms communicating across the globe." I think it is crucial for students to not only engage on what is going on in our own country, but also the world. There are many things I did not get exposed to until college. For example, I did not know the depths of Judaism until I got into my sorority. I believe that it is essential for children to be exposed with different people at a young age because it will allow them to one day become a well-rounded person.
