Electronics in the classroom lead to lower test scores
Why I chose this Article.
I chose this article because as each year continues to go on more electronics are being presented within the classrooms. This article also relates to this or any class because electronics are thought to be a problem within the school system when it comes to learning environments.
I honestly see how having electronics in a class room can be a disturbance and also cause issues and effect your learning environment, but there can be certain benefits such as keeping class more exciting or interesting to the students.
