Dear Elia Urias I am happy to read your post, “Robots: Threat to Humans,” because I wanted to read about the life with “Robots”. This is interesting for me. I want to know about more this. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is : “I believe that robots will in fact become dangerous at some point and could potentially wipe out human existence.” I think this is true because we believes on “Robots” more than a person. We thinks that robots can’t cheat us yes it’s true, but they don’t have feelings in any turn of our life we have to make a decision with emotion then robots can’t understand that feeling. Another sentence that I read was” I feel that at some point it will catch up to us and become smarter than humans to the point where they are able to make their own decisions without us.” This stood for me because that robots can kill people and their own new world. I disagree with this because they have functions that only human gaved them if he want so he can destroy this function. Your poem reminds me of something that happened to me . when i was in the 7th grade that time we were talked a lot about this topic we all were liked this topic. We were always like to do debate on this topic. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you told about that robots can able to take our own decision. They can smarter in any thing to human but they can’t take human place, because they give them birth. They can do everything because they are machines.
I appreciate you guys speaking about this issue because it is very important. My family has experienced discrimination by police, so I believe that police brutality has to stop and cops should bring safety to all people instead of fear. A question I have for you guys is how do you think us, students, can bring…[Read more]
I just read your blog post and I really enjoy how you guys want to help support dogs and end their suffering. I truly believe that dogs are treated poorly and shouldn’t be eaten because that is just cruel. They are defenseless animals and deserve to be taken care of. One question I have for you guys is where could we donate to…[Read more]
Carter, I agree with you and believe animals shouldn’t be kept in zoos as they are not very safe for the animals. Animals should be able to stay in their natural habitats and not be taken to zoos where they are put into cages. One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is “Zoos create such an unnatural and unhealthy setting that it is…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
