6th grade reading strategies

Students in my 6th grade reading strategies class are commenting below, read what they wrote about the age of technology in the classroom.

Special thanks to http://www.onlinecollegesanduniversities.net/technology-in-the-classroom/ for the infographic for discussion purposes.

Technology in the Classroom
Via: Online Colleges and Universities


  1. A lot of people in 6th grade have a Facebook. I want one but I don't want my grades to change. I think there's a way to keep your grades up even with a Facebook because I know some people who have a Facebook and have good grades.

  2. I can't believe that the more you play on computers and other electronics the more your grades can begin to slip.

  3. I wonder why 8th grade teachers don't use computers to teach reading. This has some interesting information.

  4. I thought that it was interesting that students that are on facebook drop a grade.

  5. All I have to say is "WOW"! Electronics have really gotten to us!!! :(

  6. Are you sure that they don't use technology?

  7. Unfortunately, the info graphic shows that through middle school more than half of our students are not using computers at all for school work. This raises a lot of questions....

    Is this your experience? Is this the experience of your friends? I also wonder how the information for this info graphic was gathered. Were you asked to participate? If there is information about middle school students, how did they get it? Just wondering!
