While we have discussed the pros and positive effect that technology has had on education, now we will discuss a few cons as well. As technology – based information has had a profound effect on the way people can now educate themselves, the latter also had its demerits. Like most great advancements in modern technology, the internet’s purposes have been altered and are being used for nefarious acts such as plagiarism, invasion of privacy and content theft leading to academic dishonesty in the realm of education. Plagiarism is nothing new to the academic society, as nowadays students tend to ‘copy and paste’ from the internet in order to either please the teacher or to get rid of the assigned work. Furthermore, technology such as the internet has now created opportunities for students to become better cheaters and to digitally copy information from web based sources resulting in new challenges for the educators.
Learning new things needed technology to help in any their subject. In many schools, students bring their own computer or any devices. They allowed getting their own devices from home because students have to find the information on the internet. A new learning technique called E-learning is another way to study for yourself and a new learning method that is gaining attention people all around the world. Create the opportunity for self-directed learning and learn what you want to learn.
This kind of appropriate support can be seen as a form of scaffolding (Wood et al 1976). CAML puts emphasis on mobile learners who are carrying portable devices, such as PDA, that has been augmented with hardware sensors, such as GPS receivers, wireless LAN, camera and software sensors, such as network congestion manager, web log analyzer, student behavior analyzer, etc. These sensors could detect location, activity, network connectivity, learner state, and so on . The adoption of context awareness in learning has been at the center of one branch of computer-supported learning. Several classical researches, like portfolio  and student modeling , are kinds of context awareness
Thanks to computers, imparting education has become easier and much more interesting than before. Computers have changed the way we work, be it any profession. Therefore, it is only natural that the role of computers in education has been given a lot of importance in recent years. This is also because the education system has made computer education a part of school curriculum. Considering the use of computer technology is almost every sphere of life, it is important for everyone to have at least the basic knowledge of using computers.
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.
Likewise, education, which is acknowledged as a milestone in everyone’s life span, has been taken advantages of technology via especially computers. Schools have been offering the educational courses to students by the help of teachers, separately several classes, and lesson books. However, with the advanced technology in today’s world, this traditionally given educational courses in the schools have had a change in terms of the way of teaching, and the varieties of getting education during classes. Particularly, it can be easily noticed that the conditions offered by schools are fairly more equipped and qualified for both students and teachers. Hence, the basic factor for improved educational system is seen as technology.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Ever since my childhood, technology always had my attention. I was very curious to know how the machines and gadgets around me work. Particularly computers elevated my curiosity and made me wonder how they work. The ease with which a computer can solve problems which are impossible by humans with that speed, saving our precious time even though it is invented by a human amaze me. Then I have decided to become an engineer where my work helps to reduce the human effort in any form.
The role of digital technology has become more apparent in our lives, but for students in our educational system, it has become increasingly so. This is seen by the increasing amount of technology that students use, from smartphones to tablets and laptops. Along with the technology students use, there have been great advancements in the classroom, from Smartboards to computer labs and online curriculum. While some technology can have disadvantages like cyberbullying and plagiarism, the advantages of educational technology vastly outweigh them. Digital technology in education is used for many things, including building teacher’s curriculum, increasing productivity in students, and even finding a common ground between life at school and home.
With the advancement of technology in the classroom, education has shifted from teacher centered to student centered. This also paved the way to ICT integration, the widespread use of tablets, smartphones, interactive whiteboards, and other learning technology. Because of this, teachers are expected to be adept on using technology in teaching. Technology will not replace teachers but teachers who do not use technology in teaching will be replaced (Clifford (1983) in Wheeler (2013)). Teachers now face the demands of the Generation Z learners who are experts at multi-tasking and can use multi-tools simultaneously.
We have also get a lot of new technologies, which have helped in learning.it is no more like yesterday where there were the teachers who were giving notes to students and using whiteboards. Even the way learning music and sports have been changing constantly. Technologies are no more only for entertainment rather it is a tool for studying materials nowadays. An important modern technology is the livescribe reading pen.it is the only pen which can be used for written purpose. It can help students having dyslexia.
