Ethan, terrific post. Here are perhaps 2 tough questions for you…
1. How do you think your school day would change if everyone had a laptop?
2. How do you think your teachers would have to teach differently if every student had a laptop?
Really cool thinking, Ethan. I’m glad I got a chance to read your post.
You’ve got some great thoughts. Not only are you concerned about the environment, but you are looking after your teacher’s spare time. I also agree with you that using the Internet is a great resource that should be available to students, since adults get to use it. However, sometimes the encyclopedia has the information you need as well. Plus with the internet sometimes the facts aren’t always accurately presented. Overall though, I agree with you. Let me know if you convince your school to do this.
These are all convincing arguments. What about students that use the laptops to play games all day or go to inappropriate sites? These answer to these questions will make or break your argument with teachers and/or school administrators.

BTW I agree with you!
I also want there to be laptops.
You have made some great arguments for students to have laptops. I love that you have thought about how much paper would be saved. Paper seems to be a big expense for schools. I agree with you and I hope every student will have a laptop one day in the near future.
nice blog,for research work a student has to spend alot of time to search it but by laptop he can do it in seconds.
