This paper discusses the discrete advantages that technology gives to high school education across the nation. It is crucial to implement digital supplements into school districts for the sake of the future of younger generations. Over the years it has been proven to be cheaper for all levels of education to take the leap into the future, especially high schools. Not only this, but the main signal of change should be due to the familiarity of teenagers with technology. Since they have practically grown up with it then it is only reasonable to upgrade to a new education system.
With technology evolving faster than ever before it is time that we implement more of the digital era inside of classrooms. Although there is the risk of more impractical abuse of technology by students, the advantages still outweigh the disadvantages. From the perspective of eco-friendly relevance to the obvious familiarity of teenagers with technology, it will ultimately come down to how well schools implement this change into their district. One big aspect being how well informed our educators are with technology. With digital appliances being inevitable it is not a matter of if more high schools shall make the leap into the future, but a concern of when.
