No, but I think that if you want to work in most jobs nowadays, a phone and the internet will make life near-infinitely easier. 'Back in my day' analogies are pointless here - as I said, the world changes.Originally Posted by Jamesrage
Where did I say 'need'? I'm just saying they benefit from it.I am pretty sure that most children in the world who do go to school actually still know how to do math and other things without the aid of the internet,calculator that American kids today seem to take for granted. So no kids do not need internet access in schools.
All of what you are saying is true, for a given value of 'true'. That is - it's very dependent on how a school implements it's use of computers and firewalls. There are plenty of examples where a computer has just been a distraction - but there are also plenty of cases where it has been incredibly helpful to use in a lesson.Originally Posted by Ikari
