Some argue that this new technology promotes short attention spans and lack of appreciation for the historical arts (Source E). Without the correct guidance, this statement may hold true for some students, but if teachers recognize that technology, like anything else, must be monitored and used only in proper context, that danger disappears. Technology can even be blended with traditional learning in order to maximize efficiency. Students could be asked to read a work of classic literature such as Shakespeare and later be asked to post on an online discussion board about their interpretations and reading experiences. In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information.
In fact some rely on technology for more than bragging rights or the latest app, some rely on it for an education. In this time of constant technological advances technology has made its way into education in many ways, but for the right reason. The use of technology in everyday life is typically used to make tasks easier. Although it is meant to make everyday life easier it at times can be more of a burden than a blessing. As Russell Baker stated in his short story "The Plot Against People" "The goal of all inanimate objects is to resist man and ultimately to defeat him."

But at the same time it has become more of a fashion statement to have computers or multimedia in schools, the result being that in spite of its potential to make learning meaningful and liberating, its implementation is often not more than cosmetic. Now it is also often touted as a panacea for shortage of teachers. These are detrimental to the learning of the child. Education needs to orient and sensitize the teacher to distinguish between critically useful and the detrimental use of ICT(NCFTE, 2009). In a way, ICT can be imaginatively drawn upon for professional development and academic support of teachers.
She expresses how adolescence is being fostered to use technology as a shortcut in communicating with others as well as in their academics. She explains how easy access to technology has its disadvantage and will have its advantages once we learn how to use it properly. Technology makes it easier to communicate with others around the world, easy to research and perform academically, and enables us to do multiple things at once. She expresses her opinion having things easier is not always a good thing. She gives examples of how being able to text instead of engaging in a conversation with another person eliminates relationship values, simplifying academically, by using PowerPoints, eliminates characteristics of critical thinking, and being able to multitask is away to lack attention to
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.

Students that really want to learn will force discipline upon themselves.

There're many perspectives according to the topic, but students may be the most important point of view that should be considered. On this research paper we will get into how new technology will affect learning environment and how job opportunities after college will increase. We will also mention the impact of personalized learning in the future and discuss different opinions on how students imagine the university of the future. New technology implemented
From the modernization of E-rate to the proliferation and adoption of openly licensed educational resources, the key pieces necessary to realize best the transformations made possible by technology in education are in place. Educators, policymakers, administrators, and teacher preparation and professional development programs now should embed these tools and resources into their practices. Working in collaboration with families, researchers, cultural institutions, and all other stakeholders, these groups can eliminate inefficiencies, reach beyond the walls of traditional classrooms, and form strong partnerships to support everywhere, all-the-time learning. Although the presence of technology does not ensure equity and accessibility in learning, it has the power to lower barriers to both in ways previously impossible. No matter their perceived abilities or geographic locations, all learners can access resources, experiences, planning tools, and information that can set them on a path to acquiring expertise unimaginable a generation

Not all adolescents are engaged in learning in the same environment. Some need hands-on situations and free time while others thrive with quiet spaces and strict lesson plans. If the educators are free to explore the curriculum, then they can mold it for the student which would lead to better education.
