Editors tell about their tech use

Sophie

Sophie Ludwig, Social Media Manager

When it comes to technology in school, I am someone who gets distracted very easily. I hate when I have an assignment that involves my computer. I get very off task and somehow always end up on messenger or playing Tetris. It ends up taking me almost an hour to do something when I could finish it in ten minutes. I never really use my phone in school, if I do it is because my messages are not loading on ...

During the school day, technology can be helpful to me yet a huge distraction at the same time. I used to always keep my phone in my locker, but now I usually keep it in my pocket or in my laptop case on silent. I don’t usually have time to go on my phone, but if I do, I only check snapchat for a few seconds. I get sidetracked in class from my laptop the most. If I’m bored during class, I’ll go s...

Quinn Elsenbast, News Editor

Every day before first period begins, I power off my phone completely and place it in my locker. While many of my friends mock this habit, I find no use for my phone throughout the school day and shudder at the idea of it ringing in the middle of class. While some may assume that this would limit or completely eliminate possible distractions, that is far from the truth. My laptop gives me access to al...
