Chalkbeat wants to know: how much time should students spend on computers during class?

Last week we shared with you news about a report on personalized learning.

Depending upon the a school’s model, personalized learning maybe very dependent on technology. According to the report: “Slightly less than half of teachers surveyed said students use technology for educational purposes about a quarter to half of the time, and about 20 percent said students use technology between 50 to 75 percent of the time. Among the remainder, nearly 20 percent reported an even higher level of technology usage, and nearly 20 percent reported a fairly low level of technology usage.”

This week’s question: What role should technology play in the classroom and how much ‘screen time’ should a student have?

Every Monday, we ask readers a question about a timely or timeless question about their experiences in education.
