Just wondering, as my dd claims a lot of her homework is on the PC - which i suspect is not true (or unimaginative on her part). For example, French - she does revision online, uses google translate (to my horror and her detriment) and would not dream of using a real dictionary when an online one is there at the click of a mouse...
Do others find this a problem, too? Or is it actually a problem - am i just being old-fashioned here and should I just assume this is the new normal?
Most of it is done on the computer - either online resources that require a login so the teacher can see the questions have been answered or presentations done from scratch in PowerPoint, Word and Publisher. The computer DS uses is downstairs and the screen in full view so he can't really get away with much. Some homework is done on paper but I'd say 85% requires a computer.
My children are allowed 1 hour and a half on the computer after school each day (including homework). They usually don't use the full time for it. My DD (13) uses google translate to check over her work sometimes, but also has a dictionary for it. They have been given out some dictionaries to take home I believe. It can be used for good and bad.
