Where technology is necessary, we will implement it. For example, there are a variety of physics and chemistry labs where a laptop, calculator, or some other device is required. So, we supply them. Students are expected to hand in their essays typed, so we have laptops available for check-out during study halls. Our students give presentations using visual aids like powerpoints and need the means to do that at school.
All schools – classical or not – must ask questions about their priorities. How much do they value face-to-face interaction (both in the classrooms and in the hallways)? At what cost? What do they want driving their students’ conversations: the latest and greatest app or the stories they read about literature? Are convenience and instant gratification worth the price that young people pay?
As a parent, you too can answer these questions – they will help you identify if your child’s current school is measuring up to your family’s standards.
Thriving Without Technology
Now we arrive at the main point, and, indeed, the title of this blog post: why children thrive without technology – or, with very little technology.
