Question of the Day: How much homework should teachers give during a vacation? Why?

I don't think that teachers should give students work at all for their vacations. I believe it's called a vacation for a reason. To b able to relax without having to worry about any school work or having to return anything to school after wards or anything. Nobody wants a vacation wheres though they'd have to do work.

Question of the Day: How old do you think someone should be before they are allowed to create a Facebook account? Why?

I believe that anyone who knows how and is allowed to use a computer and internet at home should be allowed to have a facebook account. I believe that its only fair. Facebook is for everybody. For friends, family, associates, and even co-workers. I don't believe that there should be a age limit to a website that doesn't have an age limit itself.

Question of the Day: How are your own teachers using technology? Does it help you learn? Do you have any suggestions for ways that your school can better use technology to promote learning and class participation?

There are many teachers that are starting to use more technology for learning. I find this a better way to connect to students and reach out towards them because many adults know that teens are more interested in electronics and phones than anything else. I believe that it gives me a chance to make up  anything that i missed and it helps me bring up my grade therefore giving me a better chance at passing. using technology to learn is a great way to learn. I couldn't have given a better idea.

Question of the Day: How much should parents in general know about their teenagers’ life online? Why?

I don't believe that its mandatory for a parent to know about a teenagers life online. If a parent wants to know certain things, i feel that its okay for them to know bu i don't think it should be a "supposed to" type of thing. I believe that teens are old enough to know right from wrong when it comes to being on the web therefore they dont need a supervisor down their back whenever their on the computer. If a teen is willing to add their parent to that part of their life its okay.
