Therefore, technology allows them to prevent wasting their valuable time by helping them find and search for whatever they want, as well as by delivering them results that are straightforward and to the point. Many critics may argue and say that technology in education is dangerous. It can waste a students’ time by getting him or her sidetracked by distractions they find online. However when students avoid technology in education, they have to spend long hours, days, maybe even weeks searching for certain information in various different books. Students that really want to learn will force discipline upon themselves.
However, although it helps people in many ways, there are still unhelpful things that technology brings us. People abuse the good effect that technology gives us to the point that they are using technology for their own sake and benefit. In fact, most of the students don 't think too much. They depend on computers and not on books which they end up storing nothing in their minds. In just one click, they can easily and quickly see the answers for their assignments.
All around the world, humans are using technology in every minute of every day. People may not even realize how often technology is used, perhaps this is because it is used every day around us for work, safety, entertainment and even food. Technology is one that we all take for granted, when we should realize how beneficial technology is in the world, how it helps everyone each day. Technology "has been created to help better our future. We need technology to help with our ever changing society" (http://www.debate.org/opinions/is-technology-moving-too-fast).
Technology has improved or damage education? What are the benefits of technology in education? Technology is a new tool in education; in schools students use visual presentations, educational videos, online forums, computers, online dictionaries and other technology tools (Use of Technology in Teaching and Learning). The decision about combining technology and education has been a theme for debates. People concerned about the education of young students worry that technology affect learning because it distracts students, affects interactivity, decline writing skills and facilitates assignments.
We can do many things easier and better with technology. Despite being the part of our life, it does not mean we cannot live without technology. Technology is the thing which human make, so it cannot make the abilities of humans degenerate. Technology is made to help people live easily. It is not made to substitute human.
Is the use of technology in the classroom useful or harmful? “We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” - David Warlick. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace in the 21st century, and ipads, laptops and smartphones are used in many aspects of our everyday lives. This modern technology is also becoming a part of learning in the classroom. The question whether the use of technology in the classroom is more harmful or useful is debatable, but the benefits far outweigh the harm.
In the present time, people can't entertain their life without technology. Around us there are several technologies are helping people to live their life with more wealth. The technology sector has changed and expand many products to fulfill societies needs and wants. Technology can be defined as the entities, both material and immaterial are created by the application of mental and physical effort in order to achieve some value. In this usage, technology refers to machines and tools that may be used to solve different real-world problems.
In spite of that, technology is not too terrible as it has also been really helpful in our everyday life. For example, we can communicate with loved ones from across the globe easily and we can easily find our way using GPS instead of reading a map. The internet enables us to search for information with the click of a mouse. Moreover, although technology has caused typewriters to be replaced with computers, there are some benefits to it. With computers, we are able to save our work and later come back and type again.
Can you imagine how life would be without technology? Technology has become a part of everyday life, and people can't imagine living without technology. The technology which surrounds almost everyone in the modern life affects both work and leisure activities. It has a scope to analyze the process of teaching and learning, and it helps in spelling out the educational goal. Also, it helps many people to achieve their goals because many people who work can’t educate at the same time, but with technology the learning has become online which it easier provide an opportunity to work and learn at the same time.
Technology has become very important in our society and I think it is time for it to do the same for classrooms. Along with all problems there are two extremes to every solution and in this case, allow the full use of technology or none at all. Both extremes have some benefits but lack the difference maker that make them work. If we completely get rid of technology classrooms may have more student engagement and focus among students but will lack the the easy and efficient research and communication that technology provides. Although if all we use is technology in classrooms, students will tend to lose focus and teachers will not be needed as technology will provide all the materials and knowledge that students need to learn.
