The author of this article, his name is Roboer B. Kozma, is now working for the Technology in Learning center, the name of the center is SRI International. In this article he explores all of the findings of research that was done by many researchers on how the technology is affecting our classrooms. His research focus deeply on the practices that has been done in classrooms to see if the students are using technology effectively and how the technology is helping them learn. The research results proved that all students held back from using the Internet and started using their brains to solve problems on their own.
Information is something that can be known with the connected to both knowledge and communication. It was consist for everything from spoken words, written communication, sheets of music, photographs and paintings, to computer codes and scientific formula. Information must have in context from which people can understand about the information.. It must have a connected for that word to giving it meaning who the information comes from many sources. Many people are surrounded by information which is on newspapers, billboards, internet, television, radio, the surroundings and people. Information also can be discovered and created. Researchers who want to find something that needed, it should to create new information when to research anything about what it wants to know.
Choice 1: Evaluate how Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has affected your learning at the ASMS.
Australian government, education authorities, tertiary education institutions and all Australian know and recognise about the opportunities and challenges that were mentioned in these researches. Hence, the curriculum can be changed and amended to cope these issues and prepare for young Australian people in the future jobs. Improving the knowledge, skills for young people through schools can be the best way. For example, as the FYA report mentioned, Young Australian need to have skills about digital, finance and skills to innovate, adapt and navigate the complex careers in the future (p. 2). Hence, the research suggested, mandatory computing or digital technologies could be considered to implement in curriculum from primary school instead of from year 9 as the recommendation of Australian curriculum, and ensuring access to digital infrastructure in all schools and communities (FYA, p, 30-32). The different skill such as digital muggle, digital citizen, digital worker and digital marker need to be taught in education system in Australia. In addition, accessing and using ICT is a part of the learning process (FYA, p. 32). Another suggestion is that enterprise skill such as problem solving, creativity and social intelligence could consider to incorporate into curriculum as individual subject (FYA, p. 32). The methods that support problem solving skill are promoted in training and teaching (FYA, p. 33). As FYA, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (2012) also claimed the importance of improving student skills. Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (2012) in white paper was suggest some pathways to succeed in the Asian century. The knowledge of Asian culture and language, and
Rigim and Kanya (2013)60, stated other factors that could also be likely influence the integration of ICT could be; lack of interest among instructors due to their negligence or as a result of their incapability and confidence in using the technologies; lack of computer facilities, infrastructure, policy, planning, capacity building and financing; language barrier due to the use of English language is important to both in instruction and learning of ICT especially students in the rural area of the
As the year 's pass, humans today are adapting to technology. Each day there is yet another realize for the iPhone with new updates along with Sprint having the new and latest smartphones available. However, do we need all this technology? Sitting on our phones and laptops all day is each minute we are losing our humanity. Technology such as the electronic tablets schools are considering to purchase can cause many headaches, and use students time on things such as sitting on their bed with their device.

Technology has been incorporated into almost everyone’s lives; whether it is from work, school, and even for their own entertainment. Almost anyone cannot go a day without seeing some sort of glowing screen; especially children. In 1999, 60% of children had access to a computer at home (Subrahmanyam et al p.124), which was only 18 years ago. Technology had advanced a whole lot in the past decade. One of those aspects of advancement is for children. There are many applications on tablets and computers that they can use for either learning or pure entertainment.

With the dawn of 21st century, technology replaced traditional facets of our lives. It changed the method of communication, changes the phenomena of mobility and had a great influence on reducing the round world to flat world (Purohit, Bhatia & Arumugam, n.d). The revelation of developing technologies leaves a significant impact on educational development (Isamail, Bokhare, Azizan & Azman, n.d). Some people think that technology is the solution of any problem but this not true in term of education. There is no best tool which is considered to cure the problems in education. Current developments in the route of ICT make significant changes in the field of education. The term technology is not considered strange in the field of education and now the mobile technology is also started to attract the educators.

As it is known from ancient time that everything in life could be described like the two side of a coin, there is always an advantage and disadvantages to every experience. But whether the effect is positive or negative the effects of Information Communication Technology (ICT) is far reaching and cannot be overemphasized. The Effects of ICT lens looks at how our lives have been changed, for better and for worse, by the impact of ICT. It includes both positive effects and negative effects and looks at how individuals’ organizations and society are affected.
Technological advancements have made the world a great and convenient place to live in. there is no denying of how they make lives better and easier, especially in the fields of science, medicine and education. but, like most things, technology also has its drawbacks. in fact, some of the more recent inventions are now being categorized as lazy aids and are considered major contributors of obesity and a generally unhealthy populations.
Now ICT in Schools is a component of the RMSA. The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Schools was launched in December, 2004 and revised in 2010 to provide opportunities to secondary stage students to mainly build their capacity on ICT skills and make them learn through computer aided learning process. The Scheme is a major catalyst to bridge the digital divide amongst students of various socio economic and other geographical barriers. The objective of the Scheme is to cover all Government and government aided secondary and higher secondary schools by giving priority for early coverage of schools in educationally backward blocks and in areas having concentration of SC/ST/minority/weaker section. Under the revised scheme, there is a provision of a suitably qualified full time computer teacher in each secondary and higher secondary school. In case of higher secondary school having computer related subjects as elective, there would be need for a post graduate in computers teacher. There are provisions for in-service (induction and refresher) training for all teachers in secondary and higher secondary schools to enable them to impart ICT enabled
There is no doubt that using ICT in ESL education facilitates students’ learning process and improves teachers teaching the process. A common fact which is analyzed in the articles is the challenges ESL teachers anticipate when integrating technology into their classrooms (Wathudura, 2017). Rabah (2015) identifies teachers’ perceptions of the challenges and benefits of ICT usage in English Quebec School Context. According to this study, the barriers that impaired the ICT use in English are: lack of infrastructures of technological sources that needed huge funds to support the availability of technical sources, insufficient support from the leaders in educational settings, and redesign old schools to accommodate
