Technology is best known for its vital impact on people. We all know how beneficial it is. It serves as an answer to all our daily activities and necessities. It also makes our lives easier and productive which lessen the number of tasks we 're doing. However, although it helps people in many ways, there are still unhelpful things that technology brings us.
We can do many things easier and better with technology. Despite being the part of our life, it does not mean we cannot live without technology. Technology is the thing which human make, so it cannot make the abilities of humans degenerate. Technology is made to help people live easily. It is not made to substitute human.
Is the use of technology in the classroom useful or harmful? “We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” - David Warlick. Technology is advancing at a rapid pace in the 21st century, and ipads, laptops and smartphones are used in many aspects of our everyday lives. This modern technology is also becoming a part of learning in the classroom. The question whether the use of technology in the classroom is more harmful or useful is debatable, but the benefits far outweigh the harm.
It helps students by making their learning expedition easy. It delivers quick access and easy searches to any topic a student wishes to explore. Just within a click of a button, and with some typing on the keyboard, students are brought all the information they desire. Students are often busy studying for several subjects at once; they are tight on time, and have to stick to deadlines, etc. 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.
It has made its impact in the education section where students does not focus in their studies, impact of technology on society which lead to increase in pollution and population, impact on workplace due to works are done electronically. Disadvantage of the usage of technology in a family which makes difference in the family bonds. With the help of technology people are usually lazy to use their own knowledge and solve their problems. REFERENCE Farrok, M. (2006) ‘Impact of technology on the workforce of the future.’ Information technology at the workplace, 23 (December-2006):Pg. 845-850.
Many problems have arisen in many families all over the world due to modern technology. Technology has had the chance to take important bonding time away from families and even change the way they view the people in their lives. Granted, technology can help
Technology has become very important in our society and I think it is time for it to do the same for classrooms. Along with all problems there are two extremes to every solution and in this case, allow the full use of technology or none at all. Both extremes have some benefits but lack the difference maker that make them work. If we completely get rid of technology classrooms may have more student engagement and focus among students but will lack the the easy and efficient research and communication that technology provides. Although if all we use is technology in classrooms, students will tend to lose focus and teachers will not be needed as technology will provide all the materials and knowledge that students need to learn.
As has been noted, technology can be a great tool for education to the wide variety of students and situation that they have. Technology is a new source for education and can benefit in different ways like, accelerating the rate of learning with different tools, supporting learning
1.0 INTRODUCTION In this modern era, technology has slowly become an essential in our daily life as technology are advancing and growing rapidly. The invention of technology brings convenience to human and it can reduce the burden of human’s job. With the use of technology, it can increase the productivity of work and it can shorten the time to produce a product or a result. Besides that, technology can bring an impact on the society to be more efficient and comfortable. All in all, the invention of new technology can improve the quality of human life.
I believe that for every advantage that technology brings us, it also brings us a disadvantage at the same time. How is technology dangerous? The answer to this question is very simple. There is lots of incident where there is malfunction in technology. For example, if there is a problem with a car than the car would not be able to run, or if there is a technical mistake in a train computer system than the train would probably dysfunction and this could lead to a crash.
