This is a bar graph of the technology used by high school students in 2008. As you can see it highly contrasts from where we are today.
What I LearnedI learned that a lot, but I believe that there is no fight for or against technology. It is too much apart of our society to leave it. We, as a society have to learn to use technology wisely. I also learned that while one bullet point can be a pro, it can lead to a con bullet point. I see now technology is something that is very valuble to our society and is to be used with caution everyday.
