Debate: A case against homework?
TED Lover, I partialy agree with you. We should look at the extent of the work that kids are taking home. The issue I see that waiting until their senior year is that it won't develop a pattern/routine. If they go to college or university they will have a harder time taking work home after class.

Debate: Should students rely on technology for their homework?
The problem I see is that by using technology you begin to become dependent on it. As a student if you rely on your phone/tablet/computer to assist you with your studies, will you be able to perform well when you're tested on these subjects and don't have access to the resources. The other issue is that if you don't understand how your calculator is generating the number, you won't understand how to interpret the results. I had access to spell check when it wasn't on every computer, between that and being left handed I used to type all of my school work. Due to that I have horrible spelling and hand writing even in my mid 30s.
