Technology Effect on Education

 The rise of technology has been important in changing the different aspects of an economy or country and especially in education. With the continuous improvement of technology, there is a need for the education sector to make the necessary adjustments to realize its benefits to the students. Technology has not only affected the students, but also the teachers and the school administrations. It has increased access to education, increased level of engagement, improved communication, and changed the role of teachers and learners.

            Technology has played a major role in expanding access to education. Apart from the fact that there were no enough learning materials before the implementation of technology, education was only accessible to those who could afford it. Today, due to the implementation of technology, there have been many improvements that have expanded access. The internet has enabled learners to get all kinds of information that are relevant to their education. Books, images, videos, and other online learning materials can easily be found on the Internet. Learners are not required to visit education centers or long-distance libraries to study. Many institutions across the globe today provide online classes for interested individuals.

            Technology has increased the level of engagement in learning institutions. Through technology, the interaction between the students and the learners has been made easy. Students can engage each other by doing research together. Teachers can engage the learners by giving feedback through the internet. For example, students learned Geography by looking at pictures and as such, it became difficult to ask questions. Today, Geography pictures can be seen using applications such as Google Maps.

            Technology has improved communication between the learners and the teachers. As a result of proper communication, collaboration has also increased. Before the implementation of technology, communication and collaboration were only limited to the students who were in a classroom. Today, technology allows learners to communicate and interact with different people who might help them in their learning. For example, students can interact with a famous scientist to understand a concept in the classroom.

Through the use of technology, students can study real-life issues. As students are taught by the teachers, there are bound to be cases or tests that require them to analyze real-world cases. Technology provides these cases in real-time and as such improving the learning abilities of the learners and also making the work of the teachers easier. Real-world cases make it easier for students to understand a subject.

The implementation of technology has led to the changing roles of the teachers and learners. Before the implementation of technology, teachers were required to teach while the learners were required to listen to the teacher. Technology has provided a lot of information that allows the learners to learn by themselves. The role of the teachers today has changed to guide the students in getting the right information.

 The role of technology in the education sector is very important. Although there are disadvantages of using it, the advantages are more and as such are the reason for which it should be implemented in education centers. It has created an environment through which teachers and students can work together and get the best out of it. The needs of the learners and the teachers have been met by the use of technology.
