Technology is now everywhere and has no regard for age restrictions. With information and knowledge at students’ fingertips, K–12 and adult learning have both become unrestricted.
Technology is an effective instrument that may assist and improve education in a variety of ways, from making it simpler for teachers to generate instructional materials to opening up new avenues for individual and group learning.
Education Technology’s Advantages
- Teachers’ and students’ roles have already started to shift as a result of technology. The teacher serves as the main source of information in the conventional classroom, while the students merely passively take it in.
For instance, students in a classroom can study the Arctic by reading about a team of scientists’ journey there, viewing images, sending questions their way via e-mail, and even participating in a live videoconference with the scientists.
- A few of the tailwinds that are accelerating technology adoption are the introduction of more experiential learning, changing the way that students now consume education, and redefining assessments as only a tool for progress rather than a tool for success evaluation.
The internet puts a wealth of material (books, audio, photographs, and videos) at the user’s fingertips.
- The usage of modern digital boards in schools is another aspect of the infrastructure. These boards are fully AI-enabled and can link and show content as well as dynamically change it in response to students’ interest levels through face reading and questioning.
