In addition there are significant costs attached to providing equitable access, training and support. However, the fact is that ICT is producing a major change in both the content and the processes of learning, such that we do not have the option of ignoring it. . ICT has a central role to play in this primarily because it is having such a profound effect on both the content and processes of learning: the move away from learning facts, the need for elearning skills and attitudes, the importance of student-centred learning and the opportunities for collaborative and interactive learning.

INTRODUCTION Today, technology is the need of the day and one of the mainly discussed subjects of our day by day survives. Face book, Email, Whatsapp, Twitter, computers, smart-phones and tablets are some of the words almost everyone is familiar with. The conventional teaching deliverance system has been a classroom setting with a professor giving a lecture and students listening and writing notes. Interaction between the professor and student has been viewed as vital learning component within this arrangement. However, innovations in educational technology use of raised area as delivery mechanisms have challenged this model.
The term classroom flip was coined by Baker (2000) and the term inverted classroom has been used by other researchers (e.g., Lage, Platt & Treglia, 2000; Handke, Jürgen, Kiesler, Natalie, Wiemeyer & Leonie, 2013). In conventional education systems, students acquire new knowledge via lectures given by the teacher within the classroom, and practice the content at home through assigned homework tasks. On the other hand, “inverting the classroom means the events that have traditionally taken place inside the classroom now take place outside the classroom and vice versa” (Lage, et al., 2000, p.32). Bishop and Verleger (2013), however, claim that this definition is restrictive and implies that the flipped classroom is a mere rearrangement of classroom and at-home activities, while in reality it represents an expansion of the curriculum. As a result, they define flipped learning as "an educational technique that consists of two parts: interactive group learning activities inside the classroom, and direct computer-based individual instruction outside the classroom" (p. 5).
According to an article by John Baker of The Huffington Post, “...How to create, how to invent, how to solve a problem, how to continually learn...” are skills that employers of modern organizations will be looking for and that should be nurtured from an early age. However, from an early age, we are taught the opposite; how to conform to a standard of what is “normal”. Creativity has become an increasingly crucial skill in the modern working world, but with a number of notable exceptions (such as Gifted and Talented and Advanced Placement (AP) classes), this crucial skill is not taught and nurtured from an early age. Rather, you are simply told to “do what you’re told to do”. Rather, you are simply told to “listen to the adult” and that the adult has a higher amount of knowledge than students at all times.
Capella University illustrates, “No one learns in the same way or at the same pace, but technology can level-set the classroom. For example, technology can provide accommodations for struggling or disabled students, and virtual lesson plans provide individualized instruction for all. Students can learn at their own speed, reviewing difficult concepts or skipping ahead as needed. Additionally, access to the internet gives students access to a broad range of resources to conduct research.” Accordingly, another betterment is the student's knowledge to allow learning to be individual to them in the classroom. With that, individual learning and growth is another transcendent reason to keep or bring technology into a
There has always been an ongoing debate between whether we should use technology in learning or if we should continue with books instead. Many believe that technology is actually a double edged sword. That it has its advantages and disadvantages when it comes to learning. Especially learning in classroom settings. I believe that it is true, technology can be used for good or it can be used for ill.
Creative and innovative applications of ICTs have long been seen as important potentials tools to enable educational reform processes improving both access to education and the quality of that education. It can bring innovative changes in the teaching profession and evade the rote learning system omnipresent in
Countries in the developed world have seen a big change in attitude towards education. Through education, one has the power to disrupt poverty and change the destiny of a generation. However, in pursuing modernization, the education in Malaysia has brought in the use of technology as one of the means to improve the education system. Technology nowadays plays an important and crucial role in society especially in the field of education. Everyone is touched by the power of technology in some way, large or small, good or bad, everyday (Mackenzie & Wajeman, 1999).
There has been a major change in education brought by the technology and it has become a widespread phenomenon. The technology has included information and communication technology (ICT) in education system and has driven many lecturers of higher education institutions to integrate the activities of ICT in their teaching (Mohamed Amin Embi, 2011). As the ICT has shown a rapid development, the educational practice is continually changing to renewal. There’s have been a shift in our teaching and learning system from traditional to more advance which currently subjected to e-learning. Terms such as computer based education, computer based instruction, computer supported learning, distance education, ICT based learning, online learning and web based learning seem to be used interchangeably by different authors; all are claimed to describe e-Learning (McFarlane et al., 2003).
As technology changed the other sectors, and managed diverse means changing the way the helm of education and learning in the modern era. Had we dealt with the importance of technology in the field of education, we find that this increase in importance after the other. Today, because of the fact that our world is a world in binary rapidly changing and evolving, so it had to specialists in the field of education to risk in creative thinking for the construction of a permanent education policy linked with modern technology. It can definition of the importance of the role of technology in the field of education at several points: - 1 The role of technology leader who directs teacher scientific material for schools and replaces the old ways and to explain the lesson traditional way. The technology-all means Almttorh- can change your teacher is the root level of education and how personal abilities in the commentary development and urged him to give a larger and easier to understand and receive the student an opportunity for scientific material.
