ORQ 

In a recent update, the Barnes and Noble Nook Color now has the ability to use Flash and view all websites on the internet, Apps and an App store as well as being able to read your email on the device.  We recently heard that starting next school year, all of the students at Eastern High School here in Jefferson County will all be GIVEN a Nook Color to carry around and take home, very much the same as kids at Moore were given a few years ago.  All of their textbooks will be loaded to their Nook Color. 

A)  If you ANALYZE the situation, could the students of T.T. Knight handle having this type of technology and why are students from Eastern getting these?

B)  How could this get out of control with Eastern’s students?

C)  Is this a good or a bad use of this technology?  Tell me your opinion.

    A) i don’t think that students at t.t. knight would be able to handle this type of device because most of the time all of the students loose their stuff and can’t find and if they have all of their information in their nook color thing then they won’t be able to recover all of their stuff that would be lost. Also i think that the students at Eastern high are getting this type of device because they are probably more mature then middle school students.

    B) i don’t think that this would get out of control at eastern high because they are probably more mature then normal middle schoolers since they have passed middle already. so my idea is that it would not get out of control.

    C) i think this is a good way of use of this type of tchnology for highschoolers because middle schoolers are not mature enough to handle this type of thing so i think this is good only for students in some type of highschool. 🙂

        i think that there i8s no middle school that could handle this device because they aren’t mature enough. Also i think that most of the high schools can handle this device because they are mature. (this is just what i think)

    A.) No, I don’t think T.T Knight can handle a Nook because Knight isn’t a high class school and students won’t be able to take care of them. They will drop it, spill something on it, or loose it. If the students at Knight will show responsibility then the students would be able to handle one.
    B.) It could get out of control with Eastern students because if they are getting a Nook for free and if students don’t care then they will end up messing it up, dropping it, or not taking care of them.
    C.) In my opinion, I think that Middle School’s shouldn’t have anything technology stuff like a Nook because about all students aren’t responsible. If High School’s will have a Nook I think it would be a good idea because it will help organize and be easier than carrying lots of books.

    a). if you gave people in t.t. knight one we couldn’t handle it we cant even handle a pencil with out losing it. and we dont have enough mature people they could get broke easier then a computer and then you would have to pay for it. and at eastern that is a rich school we dont really have the money to give every student one of these.
    B). it could get out of control because kids or students could take advantages of this device and not use it properly and may break it.
    C). i think its bad because people could break and for get at home and use it for things there not suppose to for and it would just get out of hand and no body would pay attention if they did have it.

    A)the students at T.T.Knight could not handle the nook book because of how
    the kids act now.and eastern high school maybe has kids that would take care of it better then the students at t.t.knight would.

    B)they can get on something eles then they school work like youtube,facebook and more thing like that.

    A. I don’t think that students at TT- Knight Middle school can handle having a Nook cause, they aren’t mature enough. I don’t think any middle school can handle such a thing till they are in highschool. Eastern High could handle this cause they are maturer then middle school students.
    B. I don’t think this will get out of control cause Eastern High has very mature students that know what they are responsible for.
    C. This is a good use of technology for highschoolers because they can handle it, they are mature. Also cause they can use a Nook for school and that is always a good thing.

    A) i dont think tt knight is capable of handling any type of electronic device because most people are still immature and dont know how to control themselfs. i dont beleive any middle school or some high schools even could handle this type of responsibility a the rate their at .

    b) this could get out of control because some students would be downloading diffrent apps and possibly getting virus’s or something on it . and the students could drop them or spill stuff on them and it would be ruined and the student wouldent have books for the rest of the year. and most schools already have the books for the students to learn with so its just extra money to have students learn the same thing with new technology !

    c) this is a good use of technology because it is updating our use os school to newer generations . it could also the students a new level of responsibility by handling and taking care of technology !

    nd eastern gets them cause they probley have more avanced students who are rich and really smart !
    and they are older to so they are way more mature!

    A) I don’t think the students here could handle this because there’s to much playing around it will get broke easily. Some kids here wouldn’t be able to handle it because they don’t even know how to work the internet. I don’t know why eastern is getting these but its not fair to other schools.

    B) They could go and show other people and brag to other students how they can do something different than they can. they could get on the internet while there in school and play games and not learn what they need to learn.

    C) I think this is a bad thing because if people are doing there school work on a nook then soon people will be doing school at home.If people take school at home the teachers will loose their jobs and soon the world will be nothing but technology and everybody will loose their jobs.

    A). I don’t think that everyone at T.T Knight would take good care of the Nook Color. Maybe some people, but majority of the people would probably break them & take advantage of them. Eastern students are probably getting these because their school has a lot of money, and their student could handle a device such as the Nook Color.
    B). This could get out of control because some students could transfer to Eastern just to get the cool devices. Or people could break theirs, and tell the school it broke and the school might have to give the student another one & that’s more money coming from the schools “pocket”.
    C). This is kinda a good use and a bad use of technology. It’s good because it’s a more fun and interesting way for kids to learn and read out of their textbooks. But it’s also bad because some kids aren’t responsible enough to take care of something like this and/or use it with proper care.

    A. I do not think that the students at T.T Knight would be able to handle something like this. I feel some of the students at T.T Knight are way to irresponsible. Things would be getting destroyed and erased and there would be chaos, especially if this is there from of textbook. Nobody would learn anything with this. I guess that the school board feels that the people at Eastern are more responsible, I don’t really know if they are, but if they aren’t there will be chaos there too.

    B. People would probably erase some things. Things would probably get spilled on it like drinks and be destroyed. People would probably take them home and never bring the back. Some people might get something from this, but it would probably make some people goof off and not learn anything.

    C. I guess it is a bad thing, because most people probably wouldn’t get anything more from it then they are now. Why spend more money on this when textbook are going to serve the same purpose. With the money left over if they didn’t use this they could do mare for the school, or the students.

    A)I think some kids at T.T Knight middle can handle. Some kids couldn’t handle it. Some can handle it because most kids know how to keep things nice. The others that can’t handle it might brake it of look up other things on it. So I think the once that can handle it should be able to get a Nook color e-book reader.
    B) It might get out of control at Eastern, Because of how they will use it.Like most would play games or look at pictures then do there school work. most might look up bad things then what they need for there school project.
    C)This is a good job,Because it is better then school books. It would be more fun to do it with technology. So this a really good idea to put in schools every were.

    a . no i don’t think t.t knight could handle having this type of technology because we don’t even take care of the desk and the walls at our school and then what would make a difference with something that is worth 200 dollars ? we are irresponsible , well not all but most we would run in the hall ways with them and they would drop them and break them or wouldn’t treat them with respect .

    b. it could get out of control by the students taking them home and losing them . they could use them inappropriately and mess them up. i think it would make some of the other schools mad that they get them for free even though they work just as hard . I personally think that they would take it to the head .

    c. its good because it would be easier then carrying all the big heavy books . but it would cost more money to get more books on the thing. and its good because they could have it with them whn ever . Just middle schoolers shouldnt have them.

        No. When I mean take it to the head, I just mean that they would’nt take the news well. plus, I mean, no middle school students can handle them becuz even the so called good kids at schools like JCTMS and Barrett are still just middle school kids. Based on the way some of the kids act here, I don’t know if they should be allowed to have them when they are freshmen unless they change over the summer. Maybe not all high schools should have them but that depends on the faculty at the school.

    A.) No, T.T. Knight students can’t handle Nook’s I feel this way because kids here are so immature they think everything is a game. It would be stupid too spend all that money when most likely there going to broke within a month time period ! they just don’t know how to take care of stuff.

    B.) It would get out of control because they would lose theirs then try to steal someone Else’s just so they don’t have to pay for it.

    C.) THIS IS A GOOD TECHNOGLY BECAUSE ITS SMALLER AND EARIERS

    a. I think it is a bad idea because if you give this to a child they will access a inappropriate web site and they could get expelled eastern could just testing out the phone thingy and i think they might have done a good job and could keep the thingy
    b. they might probably steal some ones and sell it for 50 buck’s and they will go on inappropriate web sites to get the other person in trouble
    c. it’s good because it’s portable and you can use it in school

    A. If we could get this kind of technology, we could not handle it because this school doesn’t have a good reputation. I have heard alot about this school and that it is mostly for bad students. Eastern is probably getting these because they are well known and have mature students. We, however, don’t have every kid here that is good.

    B. The way Eastern kids could get out of control would be if they wasn’t taught to handle expensive machinery correctly. Not every kid in this world can handle so much technology. If they did handle it, what if these kids could steal them. If they don’t get to keep them, they may steal it for their own sakes and that would go very wrong.

    C. I say it is pretty cool but in my opinion, it just means you are too lazy to do simple things. I don’t want to go far back in technology, nor go too far because it could cause world destruction with smart people. That would work if they found wires and hooked it up to this cartoon like evil weapon which would kill alot of people.

    P.S. That last part may not ever happen.

    A.i say no because you can upload apps on it and that is what the students of t.t. knight is going to do. so if you ask me i think you should not give the students of t.t.knight nook colors. also because it can connect to the internet that is anther thing they will do.
    B. it could get out of control because a lot of people want to have the beat thing so people upgrade or hack things to get better stuff on the things they have.people will try to hack the things to get free or better things on them.
    C.i think it is a good use of this thing because it is better than using textbook after textbook and having to buy new ones. i think it would help the school save money on supplys. because you could also do you home work on it and test. so if you ask me i think it is a good thing and i think you should use them for schools who can handle them.

    A) No because if we do this in our school kids will break the nook or write on them with pencils like with the computers in the school the got things written on them so this will probably will not be a good idea for kids or students in tt knight.

    B)well it will get out of control later on because they will leave them at home later the school will ask them to pay but they not because a nook costs alot and some kids cant afford it and then it will cost alot to replace one. and later on the school will start losing money because of this idea. This depends on the students too.

    C)Its a good use of technology because you can do alot of things with it. having it at school its kind of bad but adults or kids using it out of school without being a school property is good because you can go to the internet and do things outside of school.

    A.) After analyzing the situation i think that some of the the students may be able to handle this but majority of the students would not be able to handle it because they don’t take things like this seriously. When they take it seriously the nook might end damaged or even completely ruined and unable to use. When this happens the school will be down money due to cost to repair the nook or to buy the nook and then it end up ruined and it would just be a waste of money.

    B.) Like I said before they might get careless and not take this seriously and they might get carried away with the nook and end up breaking it. I say that it would help but they might just lose it, break it, and even spill something on it.

    C.) This is a good use of this technology because it can be used to learn and help students in need. This will only help them while letting them have the privilege to having this technology, but only if they take care of it without losing it, breaking it, or letting something happen to it. But like I said before only if they take it seriously. Only time will tell.

    A.) With this kind of technolegy, kids in T.T. Knight are going to goof around with it one way or another, the students are also most likely going to break it. We’ll lose the thing in less than 5 months give or take.

    B.) The same way kids get their phones or ipods taken away, by playing around with them and or misbehaveing.

    C.) It’s an awsome technolegy but I don’t think it should be for schools.

    A) No because they would just play around with it and use it for fun instead of school work and they might lose it but the kids at western high might take better care of it than middle schoolers.

    B) It could get out of control because. they could start playing with it in class. or watch inappropiet thing with it during class time or start playing games with it. and not take this seriosly they might just take it for granate.

    C) I think its a good use with technolygy because of all the advances there are they should be used for education. kids can use them for school work and download school books instead of carrying the books from home to school.

    A) maybe they believe that they are capable to have this piece of equipment and are able to provide it a good safe place to be at. and maybe they just have more money to buy the new nook color. i bet they have to take good responsibility with it, if not most likely its money out your pocket.
    b) say maybe the school or even one class has been not under school rules and breaking conduct well most likely they could get took en or something, if your little brother or sister was to get a hold of it they would be in deep trouble like i stated in part a) it would be money out of your own or parents pocket.
    c)i say its a good idea but i also say its bad why i say that is because in a matter of time they could get damaged you know? and its a good idea because you can keep all your readings and writings to the nook color but with the new flash you can get anything save all of your work you do onto it. some kids in the class or something will might steel or brake this should be an okay idea but teachers and students will have to be careful on what they must do! 🙂

    A: i do not think T.T knight middle school could handle this nook color tech because for one thing a lot of us are breaking and damaging school property already so why could we take care of this kind of tecnonolgy without loseing, breaking, misuseing, and messing up the settings of this tool for school? we cant handle it.

    B: this could get out of hand at easterns high school by students messing around with the settings or useing it for other things during school like surfing the internet, also by breaking it, loseing it, or getting it stolen by other people, plus with high schoolers they can easly misplace it or forget it. its a bad idea to me.

    C: well yes its a good use at school to read books, but notes in, and other school wise uses. it would reduse the chance of loseing notebooks with notes in it, books, and other school suplies because its all in the nook color. its a good use for school.

    Part B) Some student’s could break them if there mad at a teacher of staff member. Student’s may get out of control and lose them.

    Part C) I think it is both, good because it waste less paper and helps the environment. Then bad because they might break them and half to replace them.

    a) Well i think personally that most the kids here at T.T Knight would prob do retard stuff on theirs and play games and all that jazz and that we shouldn’t get them because Eastern prob show more mature behaviors then here at T.T Knight

    b) A couple ways it could get out of control is maybe kids would take them? or download things that shouldn’t be on a school computer and maybe people would let their friends at other school use them and then they could get virus or something and then on top of that they could just not care after awhile and take it for granted

    c) Personally i think it would be good for certain students that would take care of this and not take it for granted because it gives them the experience of the stuff that is recently getting put out and if you want it that would also increase the chance they are gonna be bought and then the company’s product will be bought faster and more money for them

    A. I do not think the students of T.T. Knight could handle it because we are younger and we do loose things easily, I just do not think 6 and 7 grade should be trusted with it. But I think 8 grade should get them cause they are older. And Eastern can get them because their older and most are mature.

    B. Some kids are not mature and some will miss use it or brake it, I think they should get it though because they are older and mature.

    C. I dont think it really matters. I dont think i would use because if we already had books why get them.

    A.) No, I don’t think that students at TT.Knight could handle this Nook Color because the students at T.T knight i think don’t really know how to act, and some of the kids could be irresponsible. I think the students at eastern are getting nook color because the student probably make high test scores, and they follow the rules , they know how to behave and they don’t act up all the time, or the school probably has a lot of money their willing to spend for their school.

    B.) Giving this technology to the student at eastern could get out of hand because the students could mess it up and the students could use it for other uses and not just for school or education. some students could use it to bully other kids by texting, or picture e-mails. When students are in classrooms they could use it to text and they could be on their nook’s instead of listening to their teachers in class.

    C.) I think this is actually a good use of technology because instead of students always carrying heavy books and ripping them up or destroying the school books, they can just use their nook color and it would be much easier for students.

    A) No I do not think T.T. Knight Middle can handle the Nook Color. Students At Knight are too immature to handle this type of technology. This school can’t even handle the technology we have here now better yet something like the Nook Color. The reason why the students at Eastern High School are getting the Nook Books is because they are probably more mature then we are and are in high school.

    B) The way having the Nook Color at Eastern could get out of control is if students start damaging the Nook Colors and breaking the screens on them. Or losing it or getting it stolen.

    C) I think it is a good use if the kids at Eastern are mature and can handle the Nook Color. If they can it will be a great thing for the school and the students. The students won’t have to worry about pencil and paper the can just do everything on their Nook Color.

    A) no i think that students from t.t. knight middle can’t handle this kind of device because they are not mature enough and i think that eastern high students can handle it because they are mature enough.

    B) i don’t think this will get out of control in eastern high because they just can handle it.

    C) i think this is a good way of use for the type of device or technology thing that they have because they can keep all of their stuff organized.

    A. No i don’t think students at Tt Knight can handle the Nook Color because many of the students now are not turning in their work when the teacher ask them. Students refuse to do so. So what makes the Nook Color make them acually do their work. I don’t think it will. Also many students at Tt Knight are not Mature enough to handle something that expensive and acually take good care of it because students tear up the school books and write all over them. Eastern students are mature enough to take care of things on their own like they would at home. Based on the students that go there.

    B. This Nook Color could get out of control with Eastern kids because they will take it as advantage. Many kids will start to get on crazy websites that are inapropiate. Also some of the students might even try to keep the Nook Color as they had bought it for them selves. When it is time to turn it in they won’t do as asked.

    C. This is a bad use of technology because they should just give most for the students laptops to take home to do homework. Using all these new technologies are a waist of money. The Nook Color is just like a laptop. It ha all types of the same websites and cool apps you can get on for school work. And games things like that.

    A.] i don’t think T.T. knight kids could handle this type of technology because were to immature. i don’t even think high school students could handle this type of technology.

    B.] one they could not give them back, two they wouldn’t be paying attention in their classes and they could brake them and say they want more , so pretty much they would be spending a lot of money.

    C.] its good but bad because its good so they can take it to every class and use when they really need it, but its bad because they could steel them and the school would be wasting alot of money.

    A. I don’t think T.T. Knight students could handle this type of technology because the majority of them are immature. I also think T.T. Knight students couldn’t handle this type of technology because the stuff we already have in this school gets mistreated so why would anybody wanna bring more stuff in here cause it would just get mistreated and broke. I think students from Eastern are getting this because they are a lot more mature then we are and they probably don’t mistreat what they have in there school. Also I would like to add they probably got more money then us.

    B. It could get out of control with Eastern students by students misplacing it. Also they can be getting on social websites such as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc.

    C. I think this technology is both good and bad but mostly bad because it cost so much money, the Nook is $250 for just one of them. I think Eastern students are mature, but they have a few who still haven’t grown up, so those few can break of lose this really expensive device. Also I feel like using this device would just make children rely on technology to much when all they really need to do is open a book. Reading is better for your eyes then technology and plus it makes you smarter.

    a] i don’t think that the t.t.knight students shouldn’t have this because that we don’t need them and if the people that bring them home mite get them stolen or broken and have to get there parents to buy them and they mite not. we already have books here and we don’t need to replace them with a pieces of technology for EVERY student in the school.

    A) I think the students at tt knight would not be able to handle the nook and use it because the students here are always in trouble and they are to immature to use this type of equipment. But i think eastern high school would be handle and get this type of equipment because they are more mature and they would probably understand to use it better then tt knight middle school.

    B) It could probably get out of control with eastern high school they probably wouldn’t have enough for all the students in that school. Even the students could break and even make scratches or even they could drop it so it wouldn’t be able to work at all because they messed it up to much.

    C) I think its a good idea for technology because the students wouldn’t have to use the tore up books that the school provides them and they could have pages tore out of it. And there is more that the students could use with the nook.

    A ; In My Opinion , i Think That The Students At T.T Knight Will Be Able To Handle This Situation Because The Students At T.T Knight Middle School , So To Be Responsible When It Comes To At Situation Like This . Students Are Getting This At Eastern High School Because , Maybe They Are Not Responsible And Maybe That’s Why The Principal Made That Decision .

    B ; This Can Get Out Of Control By , Oyher Students Getting Other Students Folders Mixed Up ..

    C ; I Guess Its Good , Because i Really Don’t Like It , In My Opinion !

    B.)It might get out of control with the Eastern kids because people might take other peoples folders.

    A.) I don’t think Knight students could handle this. They wouldn’t use the device properly.

    B.) I think they might start to get on Facebook and Youtube in the middle of class.

    C.) When put in the right hands, this could be useful technology. You could use it to save money on collage books, or research on the go.

    A) If you ANALYZE the situation, could the students of T.T. Knight handle having this type of technology and why are students from Eastern getting these? i don’t think that the students at tt knight could handle this type of technology because allot of people get in trouble and act mad. i don’t think that just because they are going to get a nook that they will change there attitude i think they wont.

    B) How could this get out of control with Eastern’s students?
    it could get out of control with ea-stern’s students if they act mad and don’t take care of the nook because you have to take care of the nook for it to not break or anything .

    C) Is this a good or a bad use of this technology? Tell me your opinion.
    no i don’t think this is a bad use of technology but i just think if people are going to give certain schools the nook they should either give all the schools a nook or none of the schools because some schools probably going to think its not fair.

    a.) t.t. knight shouldn’t because I dont think people are responsible enough to have the nook and they play around then it can get stepped on.

    b.) i think eastern students are more responsilbe then us and thats why they should and they dont so they shouldnt get out of control with it and they might have more freedom really with the school.

    c.) this is actually a good techonolgy because you can carry it and it a veyr good one and aolt of people may but it
