Technology, it’s in our everyday lives. As time moves along so does the instruments we use in our everyday activities. The most innovating piece of technology could be found in your pockets. The tool I’m referring to would be seen as the glorious smart phone, which has wired millions of kids minds to think that there would be no life without it. In fact we are now providing kids this technology in school at a very early age.
When students are not in school, almost everything they do is connected to technology in some shape or form. Teens spend nearly nine hours every day consuming media. Teens are spending more than one-third of their days using media such as online video or music, according to a new study from the family technology education non-profit group, Common Sense Media (Tsukayama). By using technology in the classroom, teachers are connecting with the student on a different level, showing them a new way to use their devices for educational use. Teaching students how to incorporate technology in everyday life is another positive reason to have it around the
This is a significant increase. Most importantly, having abundant online resources helps make a new form of learning known as E-learning. E-learning is able to help teach teenagers self-learning which is a useful tool in real life. In later parts of the teenagers’ lives there may not be facilities such as schools and teacher to help them learn and they have to rely on self-learning. So, E-learning gives teenagers an opportunity to start early to help them in the future with self-learning.
When technology is used correctly by students and administrators it can be one successful combination. Today technology runs teen lives. Schools need to develop technologically to meet up with the modern developments. Teens are on mobile devices, tablets, and computers more often and they want their schoolwork to be compatible with the
Teachers need to develop a new mindset of teaching through technology which involves a big switch in teacher/student roles. Today’s students have access to far more knowledge than their parents once found in textbooks and on maps. With the click of a mouse, they can access the collective knowledge of all mankind, via the Internet. Teachers and students today need a firm grasp, not only of current technology, but of technologies to come. In schools students already use video and media creating programs for projects which helps develop creativity and problem solving skills.
Information technology, while an important area of study in its own right, is having a major impact across all curriculum areas and it has completely change the way of our live if we look at past, how was the situation of people in that time without technology and compare with the currently, we will see there is a huge different and today s’ development in all area comes as result of technology especial in education. Information technology has brought drastic change in the life of students because it makes easier for students to study and it provide various software and technique to educate.so, student can fine easily any information about different issue or whatever they want from
How can we be so globalized if not for this activity in class? Being in a crowd of students and teachers, all with different personalities, cultures, beliefs, opinions, upbringing and so on help to improve and enhance our socialization skills. This allows us to know how to interact and deal with different people in different situations or circumstances. Imagine you are learning at home since young as an online student, you are never exposed to others since you were young other than your families. Will you know that there are different races in cosmopolitan countries like Singapore and some food you eat can be an insult to
With the use of social media students can easily search materials for their homeworks or projects, can contact their classmates for group works even if they are at home, and they can use it to research topics that they find difficult (Brannan, 2014). Not only is it useful for the students but it is also efficient as a learning tool for the teachers. Yet, however helpful and efficient the use of social media is, it also has its downside. As mentioned, social media and its different platforms gave way for education to be efficient for the students but some students who fail to find balance with the use of it face difficulty in their studies as it increases students’ distraction thus being detrimental to students’ performance (Jacobsen & Forste, 2011; Mythily, Qiu, & Winslow, 2008). While these two studies have agreed on how social media and internet usage affect one’s education, both have different results when it comes to the exploration of social media’s relationship to one’s social environment and relationships.
Educators who support using social networking for education say it has become so ubiquitous for students-who start using sites like webkinz and club penguin when they are in elementary school- that it makes sense to engage them this way There are few social networking sites which are educational such as blogger.

This book describes how education in India is a “life-long learning process” and goes beyond the usual learning periods for children in other countries from the ages of 6 to 18. This type of rigorous education system has given rise to many of the children in India growing up to be engineers, doctors, and scientists. This will help with the research paper because it gives evidence as to why there are so many people in India in STEM-related professions and the impact of how companies around the world call them for job opportunities, therefore causing them to immigrate out of India.
