Imagine a classroom where kids are asking their teacher questions every second. Whoever that teacher is, she would be very busy constantly answering questions. If kids had their own laptops, they could look up the answers to their own questions, instead of constantly asking their teacher. I think kids should have their own laptops at school because then they could do their own research anytime they have a question, they could practice their computer skills, and parents would save money on buying thumb drives for their kids.
If kids had their own laptops, then they wouldn't need to bother with a thumb drive. Some parents don't have enough money to buy thumb drives for their kids. In addition, when students use thumb drives, they have to carefully use "Save As," which takes a long time. Sometimes their work doesn't even save correctly on the thumb drive. If kids have their own laptops, they could just use "Save," and it does not take a long time at all. Parents wouldn't have to spend their money or look for inexpensive thumb drives.
Kids should also have their own laptops because it really helps kids practice their computer skills. With lots of practice, kids can type really fast, so they could type a long essay very quickly. Kids will get better with all technology skills when they have their own laptop. This may help them get a better job when they grow up because they will have technology experience.
The future is about technology. If students want to someday get jobs about technology, they need to start practicing their skills now. If they don't know how to use the technologies for their job, they won't get paid. It is so important for kids to have their own laptops to be ready for jobs and college.
