“In some cases, people like to come off as bullies or tough on social, media but in person, they are shy and quiet. We hide behind computer screens and cell phones so nobody knows what goes on in our real lives. We don't have to post the bad things that happen, all we have to do is post the better things and everyone thinks we are all put together.” People like to show off on technology because it's easy to and you're not face to face with others that could tell that you were lying and it's easier to be judged in a good way other than a negative way.

Grabbing the attention of any learner is very important especially when it comes to e-learning or any other learning types using ICT. Since, by nature, children are wiggly and fidgety and have difficulty sustaining attention for long periods of time, it is imperative to observe children in their natural environment in order to gain a better understanding of their typical behavior. There is a formula to estimate realistically how much time a child can focus on one activity which is “Attention span for learning = chronological age + 1”. As an example, an eight-year old child would have a (8 + 1 = 9) nine-minute attention span for a learning activity. This information is very useful in the sense that it will help any teacher to plan his activities
Education being a necessity of life is always taken into the prime consideration.

“One major disadvantage of making friends online is that you do not always know if people are who they say they are.” (Source 3). With the internet, people are able to be anonymous to others who don’t know who they are. With this secrecy people can even act like people they’re not. People on the other side of the internet can do or say things that show traits that don’t relate to their personalities in real life. People also don’t realize that by staying online or on social media most of the time you are not interacting with friends and other people in real life. You also can’t sustain a healthy relationship with someone you can interact with and see every couple days. Due to not collaborating with these people it can lead to a very stale relationship that is bound to end. With these in mind it is very hard for people to make friends online, and sometimes even impossible.

Formative assessment refers to a wide variety of methods that teachers use to conduct in-process evaluations of student comprehension, learning needs, and academic progress during a lesson, unit, or course. Brown (2004) defines formative assessment as “evaluating students in the process of “forming” their competencies and skills with the goal of helping them to continue that growth process”. Cowie and Bell, (1999) adopt a narrower definition of formative assessment by using the definition “the process used by teachers and students to recognize and respond to student learning in order to enhance that learning, during the learning”. This definition requires formative assessment to take place during learning. That is, focusing the unplanned an
Technology has always been a major counterpart of human civilization. New technology brings changes in our living and eventually forces us to adapt to it. From the days of Stone Age to the modernized world of computers, where a tiny microchip holds information similar to the brain, humans have endlessly modified their facets of life with the invention of new technologies. Among many areas, education is one such field where the new technology have made huge impact in many calculable and incalculable ways. Current educational phase is primarily divided into two forms, traditional schooling and online learning programs. Both, although distinctly favorable in its own place, are assumed to be equally productive in bestowing best of education to
Today’s society is pretty much a virtual world. Everything is done through technology—the important things like email, paying bills, and even school. In “Games, Not Schools Are Teaching Kids to Think”, James Paul argues how video games are teaching kids to think and school is not. Throughout the essay, Paul uses his knowledge and research in sociolinguistics to activate the reader’s feelings in hopes of getting them to recognize that video games are enhancing and teaching skills that the school system is not.
