    • Dear Treyvon,

      What side are you on? I see it as technology is doing more good than harm, even in traditional learning, those who are rich get more opportunities in classes, supplies, teacher support etc. The disparity won’t change with or without technology. But there are people who are trying to make a change like the sprint company, at out school they were giving out free devices to lessen the technology gap. I see as technology brings more good than harm, and also the paper shortage right now in Oakland schools, technology is there so we don’t have to heavily depend on paper. In my opinion technology brings more good than harm. I’ll like to hear back from you, thank you fro sharing your voice.

    • Treyvone,
      I really enjoyed your post and agree with everything you said. I found it interesting that you said we are becoming desensitised to the world around us at the beginning. I think that when we are accustomed to seeing certain things everyday, that we may not see if we did not have technology, we become used to it and do not necessarily realize it may be harmful. I also found it interesting when you talked about growing up with technology and how it is less common for someone to have a face to face interaction with someone else because we are all so used to communicating through our phones. You may find this article interesting for future research: https://www.inc.com/issie-lapowsky/inside-massive-tech-land-grab-teenagers.html .

    • Hello Treyvon, I thought your topic was interesting. I believe the creators who are advancing our technology are only seeing the good it will do, but they are unaware of the consequences that it brings upon our society. Technology such as social media has done us all a lot of good, it has made communication easier (in a sense) and has given us information that has expanded our world. Although this can become an issue since so much information on billions of people can be invasive, and that is the downside of getting to meet new people on the internet. From this link, https://thoughtcatalog.com/tasha-soliven/2017/10/heres-how-technology-is-desensitizing-us-from-the-real-world/, technology “limits one’s power and control to be their autonomous selves. Someone can be observed at all times, but he/she may never know when, where, or even why.” When you said, “Distractions are a variable factor in life that are often hard to control and leads to a person losing focus at a task at hand.” Trying to maintain a face that may not be real can be distracting. Maybe we think it’s safer to speak behind screens because we’ve learned that it’s more comfortable that way, so how do you think society can correct itself? I am interested to see what more you do with this topic. Bye.

    • Hi Trey,
      I thought your article was very informing an a very important issue in America that doesn’t seem to be talked about very often. Being able to vote is the biggest impact many people can have in our government, and the voter ID laws make it very difficult for many to exercise this right.

    • Hello Trey,
      I really liked your post about how technology is making our ability to concentrate less and how it is effecting the everyday life of people. I have experienced this in my life while trying to study i will get distracted or loose focus on what i am doing because of my phone or other technology. I think that this issue would be hard to address with how our world is today and how much we are addicted to our technology.
      Do you think that we could address this problem today or are we to enticed with technology?

    • I am intrigued by your post, because I like the way you explain how people motivate themselves. ” This can be an example of how students act in school in relation to a certain subject. If a person is passionate about the subject of math they will most likely be more inclined to pay attention and listen during the course and exacerbate their knowledge for the material.” Your explanation is truly accurate, people do better if they know the subject, if they have no experience on the subject, they are most likely lack on focusing and have no interest on learning.

    • Trey,
      This was a great topic. It’s crazy how we all differ in what motivates us and in what we are motivated to learn about. Not only does this impact us in school, but it impacts our futures, too. I completely agree with you that we are motivated to do better in something we are interested in. People always say “follow your passions” because we are more likely to put a lot of time and energy into succeeding since it intrigues us. I thought you brought up an interesting point about how we are naturally pulled to subjects and how this motivation is an intrinsic quality. Do you think we are born with an attraction to a certain subject that effects our motivation to learn about it later in life? Good job!!

    • I really liked your topic on motivation, you touched on topics that were easy to relate to. When you said “this can be example of how students act in school in relation to a certain topic” I could relate to this especially. If someone finds a topic interesting they will put more time and effort into learning more about that specific topic. Do you think that our parents interests have an effect on what subjects we find most interesting?

    • Trey,
      I really liked reading about this topic. Its such an amazing thing to think about that “If a person is passionate about the subject of math they will most likely be more inclined to pay attention and listen during the course and exacerbate their knowledge for the material. While at the same time the student does not like history, but is forced to take time to learn about it.”. This makes sense to me because I can easily relate to this. I too believe that people do better in the subjects that they are more attentive to than to those that they don’t find ant interest’s in.
