I’m not sure the last time Johnathan Johnson was in a K-12 classroom ("Let’s get creative to put tech in schools," Opinion, March 2); however, it must have been as a student.
Education in today’s classrooms includes technology. Students may not have their own tablets but they have access to computers. Teachers use technology in their lessons such as interactive whiteboards, computers and projectors.
Technology should not encompass every minute of the school day. Preparation for the workforce includes developing collaborative and interpersonal skills that are not mastered on electronic devices. A tablet will not provide a quality education on its own.
