100 thoughts on “How do digital tools and technology support you in your learning?”

  1. For digital tools Google Drive is really good to use because you can work with your partners on a project or work and your teacher can see what your doing.
    For technology support IPads , Laptops, Computers and chrome books really help us do our work.

    1. The use of Smart Boards, Laptops, Tablets, Audio Books, and computers help us work more efficiently and effectively. We get more work done with the use of these tools and the internet. We finish work slower when writing. Even improving the internet will drastically help us finish projects or work on projects at school. The faster and the better technology available means the better, faster and easier it will be to complete our assignments. Also there should be many of these because schools have lot’s of people so you must accommodate for students

      1. There are meany creative thinking skills and learning methods but there is one method that i am sure not only works for me but others as well. This is a learning style that involves first righting a note from a power point presentation about it then practice a few examples about your corresponding topic. After one completes the example i then make sure i understand the corresponding steps before i move on or begin the work sheet with includes checking the definition on my electronic device or asking the teacher. So of course technology helps me throughout my learning.

    2. The use of Smart boards, tablets, laptops, Google Drive, they all help me to learn. Also faster to get work done compared to writing.

      1. Same here technology gets work done faster and you can research your topic rather than looking it up in a book or waiting for the day to learn about it

  2. Digital technology like IPads, Computers, ChromeBooks, and Smarts boards can help the teachers and the students in our school community. Teachers can use things like smart boards for interactive lessons or lesson articles. The students can use ChromeBooks, Computers, or IPads for things like research, looking up definitions, and using youtube for educational videos.

  3. Technology helps me do the research for projects like my BHM projects. iPads and laptops are more convenient in the classroom because I can work at my desk to get things done faster and I don’t have to walk back and forth down the hall from the learning center to my classroom to use a computer. They work fast and are portable so I can bring my teacher my work without having him follow me around the school just to show them my work.

  4. a lot of teachers involve things like power point for projects. i have known a teacher who used twitter to let us know the days activities ahead of time. i dont think the technology is really a thing for should lean towards when learning, because though on one have it offers a lot of opertunities it can also restict the creative flow of creative thinking while learning/working. i think that to a certin extent using technology is great and can really help some students but when it comes to it, there are a lot of differnt learning styles and technology may not help students who work better being expresive abway from a screen and learn more hands on.

  5. They help me quite a lot, they make everything easier, and it’s a huge help with many of my classes. Without technology everything would be much difficult and harder since you have to get your information looking through a book, where as on a computer you can just search it up.

  8. It helps in many ways because when we do presentations instead of using paper and posters ( wasting paper) we use powerpoint and prezis which means we are helping the environment and it is easier to use

  10. They make things easier because we can use technology to create presentations very fast. Also, researching is a very important, and with tech students can get info very easily and efficiently. It would be cool to have tablets in most classes that require a lot of research work, such as history, civics and careers and etc.

  11. technology helps us because we can use apple TV to show the class what we are working on and get feedback for our work . we can also use it to research and find information to get us the information we need to finish our project

  12. it helps students research stuff faster not like a book where you have to read and read but with technology you can find everything in a instant

  13. Digital tools and technology support our learning by making it easier to access school work at home or at school. The cloud like Dropbox or Google drive make it more efficient for students to save their work and be able to access it more quickly.
    Students can watch videos of lessons online to help them understand more deeply. Also, students who are absent have a chance to catch up on previous work on the schools website.

  14. Technology helps us with our learning because you can use computers to find what your looking for like if you are looking for how the war of 1812 ,you could simply go on Google and find your answer

  15. Digital tools and technology help me with quick, easy, and useful research when doing a project or culminating task. It also helps my wrist because it hurts when you write too much.

  16. Digital tools in class help create more efficiency and not wasted time, also there are no physical papers that can be lost or misplaced so it helps towards organization

  17. Well because I’m always on my phone, and trying not to be bored with a lot of the games I make up some questions and go on numbers and play on there.

  18. Digital tools and technology support me in my learning when I am doing research because the internet is a very, very large source of information and it is a lot better than most books because there are several ways you can learn, via video, audio, reading text or even going through a virtual course. This information is also available on demand more-so than books at a library, etc. Another reason why the internet is a great way to learn is because of the amount of people with experience that are submitting this information and there are many points of view.

  19. Digital tools and technology help you in your learning because… you can use your phone as a calculator, translator and dictionary. Also, on your smartphone or computer you can search the internet for newer updated information, rather than looking in a textbook that was published 10 years ago. I think teachers should allow electronics in class to a certain extent because they can be very helpful.

  20. digital tools and technology support our learning by giving us easy and quick access to information over the internet. it also allows us to create more effective presentations

  21. We should be able to have the choice to come to class or not each day, by providing more online class courses for every school, and teachers that teach in class lessons to provide all notes, presentations, and work online for all students.

  22. We think digital tools and technology support us in our learning because it makes finding information for our projects and research, faster. It’s also great because before smart-boards, in our old school we had chalkboards so if someone missed a class the lesson was already erased off the chalkboard but now you can just pull up the lesson off of the smart-board in a couple of clicks. Technology is also great because it’s advanced and constantly being updated instead of say, the textbooks which were published a while ago and our now outdated. We are one of the fortunate schools who have a lot of technology but we need to use it to our full advantage.

  23. D2L helps students alot when they missed a day at school and they dont know what they have to do so they can just go to D2L and see what they missed.

  24. D2L helps students alot when they missed a day at school and they dont know what they have to do so they can just go to D2L and see what they missed.that is why i think D2L is a really good thing ancaster has.

  25. Textbooks need to be provided in PDF form. It’s unhealthy for us to be carrying around physical textbooks all the time, especially for the people who have long walks home. It could potentially become a legal issue for the HWDSB if someone were to develop serious back problems due to always having to carry heavy backpacks around. The vast majority of students have some form of technology that they can use to view PDFs. It’s easier, better for the environment, and much cheaper. Stop wasting money on physical textbooks that could be used to fix the school or get other supplies.

  26. They support your learning by giving you a more visual learning experience. For example, if a teacher uses a smart board during class you are able to follow whats going on and you are more engaged in the lesson. Also, technology allows teachers to post class work on the internet so you can get the work even when you are away.

  27. Digital tools are great because they’re much more reliable, since they are backed up onto the cloud (with Google Drive). But our school his held back by computers that shut off for no reason, slow computers, slow WiFi, and lack of technology. While some students can bring in their own technology, not all can, and that hinders their ability to learn.

  28. Technology is a huge benefit in school. Textbooks in PDF wouuuuld be useful for students.. because carrying 50 pounds (i weighed my bag) in textbooks and binders is rather painful for pretty much every student. Also, I like how teachers are more open to students using technology in class, instead of snatching up those phones their joining into the online presence of their school

  29. Digital devices and tools greatly aid me in my learning because they allow me to research as well as analyze things that I don’t understand. Smart boards are also a great help in math classes and biology class where we are able to draw diagrams and work through problems easier.

  30. When I’m away from class I don’t miss anything because most of the work done in class is online. It makes it much easier to catch up on missed days.

  31. They are useful because they help me do research on a topic I don’t understand and can use it as a calculator but only when it is needed

  32. we get easy and quick access to information and can use programs like google dox, prezi, and D2L to enhance learning and students engagment when it comes to duing projects and assignments.

  33. Technology can help with learning because if you’re working on some kind of project with someone, or by yourself you could easily search up what you need to know on Google, and find what you need to know on a website.

  34. Etextbooks are highly beneficial to students who are obliged to carry numerous course companions, particularly in senior grades and IB students, we have so many things to carry that can be alleviated by these. I would also suggest sites such as quizlet to learn languages by virtual flashcards, and pdf versions of theses for sources in English/History.

  35. I think that it would help us be more creative in our work and also it wouldn’t be as much work like writing something down for a long time

  36. Websites such as Google drive or dropbox allow me to work from different devices or locations. The sharing tools in those websites also make group work much more efficient and easy for members of the group .

  37. Digital tools such as laptops, phones and computers help a lot. Some times when i don’t understand a topic, i go onto the internet to watch videos that people make, or read articles that are posted.

  38. Digital tools, like tablets and laptops for example, would help because it cuts down on the weight that we carry (especially if we can get the PDFs of textbooks as they start to weigh a lot in the later years of high school). It also helps in organizing notes, especially with access to on-line programs such as Google Drive where we can store, and sort our notes. However, this would require students to use these digital tools responsibly.

  39. It helps us take notes in class, make presentations, share documents among our classmates and catch up on homework.
    Pdfs and online textbooks would be a lot better than carrying around a back breaking amount of textbooks for each class. Maybe in the future supply pdf/online textbooks, or if not maybe allow the students to mail their chiropractor bills to you.

  40. i support technology in the schools, especially music, i find it helps motivate me and it allows me to get the work that i need to finish. i think we need it

  41. well i think that using electronics in school is us full because if you are needing to search something up but you cant go to the computer lab you can just take your electronic out of your pocket or out of your bag and search it up.

  42. Things like computers, smart boards, etc. help me very much in class! We use computers for research and to write important documents for our teachers. Hand writing is a lot more work because you can’t simply delete a sentence or paste an image! Although, teachers should supervise the children carefully or they might be playing minecraft or on youtube!

  43. Technology and digital tools support me in my learning in many ways. Websites such as D2L are really helpful if you miss a day of school because you can independently complete the task and have it finished on time. PowerPoint, Prezi and other Microsoft programs are extremely helpful for projects and presentations. The internet is also extremely helpful on finding information and researching.

  44. The ability to access the Internet makes learning a lot easier: your research for assignments is more accurate, and it is much easier to receive feedback from teachers when you submit an assignment online, as teachers can comment their thoughts on the document right there instead of writing them down on the sheet of paper and handing it back to the student.

  45. my writing is not the best so the school board gave me a laptop and this laptop has been helping me so much and my writing has been getting better as well.

  46. Technology makes a lesson more interesting, such as movies and power points. Also it makes it easier to write and to quickly send a message to a teacher, or for a teacher to send you feedback. It also makes it a lot easier to correct spelling mistakes.

  47. Digital tools and technology is quintessential to our learning environment, in language class everything we do is in on the chrome books, all our projects and work is on our chrome books, they are much better than the conventional way.

  48. Its nice that our school uses Google drive to help us store things related to school and give us our own Google account. I also like that we research many things and do most of our stuff on the computers, I pads, laptops etc. Using technology is really helpful for us and our school.

  49. Digital and technology support me in my learning because using technology is easier then using basic tools like books. Also i know how to use technology very well.

  50. Technology helps us a lot because we get to do research and have accounts that we can share our research on and ideas with our teacher and also it’s a great way to communicate with our teacher, about our thoughts and ideas. We can also get feedback from our friends, so we know we’re on the right track or not.

  51. They support our learning because , we try new things and yes we make mistakes with tech because we don’t always know how to use it, but we always learn from our mistakes. I think we are really lucky to have tech in our school. And how it helps because the answers are so easy to find. But sometimes it’s better to use books.

  52. Without technology we couldn’t go on the commons and write blogs or do podcasts in math. People who need help with writing use technology so they can learn and it’s much easier. People with metal problems attract better to technology then pencil and paper.

  53. It doesn’t help what so ever. It gets in my way, and I wish this whole thing of this technology didn’t happen. Technology just slows me done like if we had to do a essay on the iPads it would take me a period if I just wrote on a piece of paper but it would take me a whole day to do it on the iPads. So technology is a wast of time for me and my work.

  54. they can help us with research and discovering new things…. we can also use them for essay and writing reports, because they automatically correct them

  55. They support us a lot because iPads, laptops and what ever other technology we use gives us a better variety of information. If your in a text book or some sort of boom that we used to use in school didn’t really give us good information. We had to use the book only to find information, so now the iPads, laptops etc help us get more and better information.

  56. Johnny: Because in French class you can attach an iPad to an Apple TV to learn more easy also you can use google translate.
    Steven: It really helps because in the school that I attend allows us to bring our devices, therefore we can listen to music in class and it’s very calming and makes me perform much better.

  57. Google Drive is useful because if you share a doc as long as you aren’t typing on the same line two people can type at the same time.
    Bringing personal devices in nice because when we’re doing independent work we can listen to music.
    The iPads are nice too because they’re faster them laptops and have apps that you can’t get on laptops.

  58. Not Antonio: Technology helps us learn because we can find a large variety of information threw the web.

    Not Steven: Technology helps our learning because we can post our work and get help from it and if we need to we can look at other peoples work

  59. It supports in a lot o ways like blogs like commons and stuff even to minecraft can be even use full in MATH. just a couple of weeks ago I used minecraft to do a math project! and some other kids did too.

  60. Technology help us in a lot of ways. Like if you are a shy speaker in front of a class like us you can use the iPads, Laptops and computers to record your voices and present it to the class. Some people also don’t like to write on papers because Their writing might be bad and don’t wan to be embarrassed, and more.

  61. I think student should not be allowed phones, ipads, iPods. I think this because when teachers are not looking they go on them. Like in French one day the teacher was at the back of the class with a different student ,and so one of the girls when on there phone to text to a friend. once she sent it the girl that got it she started to text back. plus with the ipads at franklin road school some students do some dum things on them. this is why I thing pods , phones, and ipads should not be in school.

    A few good things with digital tools is that they help a little. the reason is because it saves trees in the end. 2sd because it helps to explain things that are hard to. 3rd reason is because you can get tools that help you learn like” EXL”.

  62. I think ipads, ipods and phones are helpful because when u can’t get an computer and they help and get us more interested in are work. Like in French we are using iMovie and taking movie trailers and putting are voice over top. So doing that makes us work harder to get to the ipad part. So I believe that we should get more ipads in to schools and make are education more fun and less boring, because if we aren’t interested we don’t listen or don’t remember what we learned. And as Mohawk Collage says “step into the future”.
