Technology has advanced our ways of education in more ways than just one. This advancement has benefited in the classroom and made accessing knowledge easier for students. Technology is an asset that should be accepted by all educational systems because of its major convenience. With information readily available in the digital age, acquiring it, is quicker than ever. In the interview with Pam Varnado about Using Technology in the Classroom she mentions that there is “immediate access to an unlimited amount of information.” (Varnado Page 12).
Introduction Digital technology has helped making many major achievements during the 20th and 21st centuries. But while digital technology has been accredited for major development in many industries, in some others it has been noted to only optimize the field in limited ways. One such field that has only benefited in a limited way from digital technology advances has been the Radiology industry which has experienced developments but to a limited proportion of the users (Lanca & Silva, 2012). The medical use of digital radiology imaging of the human’s internal structure and appearance for medical investigation is one such area that has experienced serious limitations despite of developments in the field. This has resulted in the radiology technology
Film has already wiped out from professional newspaper use and similarly, no digital capture method has nearly replace 8x10" large format film for massive exhibition prints that need to be phenomenal detailed. I would have an easier time and get in less trouble by using film when quality expected. I favored the appearance of film than prickly digital look. Film takes much more work, but carefully builds up better skills for photographers who can complete the steps from shot to print all without a glitch. Either digital and film each serves a different purpose.
To fully experience the effects of technology, one must be familiar with the parts, the function of each part and operation of the learning instrument. Without this knowledge, the benefits of learning technologies will not be experienced and may become an interruption in the learning process. Along with the manipulation of the instrument, the user is then required to skilfully blend the technology into the class using appropriate contextual implementation techniques and teaching pedagogy. This sentiment is reflected by Nair (2014) in his article, “Learning, teaching and technology in higher education”, where he emphasised that learning technology will work as long as they are used correctly by teachers. Whichever approach is chosen by the teacher, the selection and execution of the technology must be compatible.
Perception of the capability of various technologies to improve aspects of current practice. (Source: Perceptions and attitudes of Canadian dentists toward digital and electronic technologies.

Jelfs and Richardson (2013) claim that “students’ age and their attitudes to digital technology are distinct predictors of their approaches to studying in distance education” (p.339). Technology today is giving adults ownership over their learning, and with the world literally at their fingertips digital tools are developing new strategies of learning that is necessary to ensure success in the distance learning
It is evident that digital equipment, tools and resources when effectively used, can raise the speed and depth of learning in different subject areas for the learners. Digital technologies are also a help in some aspects of literacy, especially in writing and comprehension. Digital technologies appear to be appropriate means to improve basic literacy and numeric literacy skills. The use of digital tools and resources can also help to reduce gaps in subject attainment when they are effectively
2. How do the respondents assess the effectiveness of the technology-based education in terms of: 2.1 physical environment; 2.2 facilities; 2.3 pedagogical content; and 2.4 students’ interest? 3. Is there a significant relationship exist between the respondents’ profile and the level of effectiveness of technology-based education? 4.
