– I wish we had Ipads because i feel like we could receive and send out information quicker between the teacher and student.
– I wish our education was more involved with technology so our voices could be heard all over the world.
– I wish we had ipads because we can use it to use the musical apps and be able to get things right then and there instead of waiting for it.
– I wish we could have more technology to communicate with the teachers differently. Instead of raising our hands we could have a classroom chat room.
