In conclusion, I believe that
information technology is not just favorable to us in our daily lives but also
unrewarding. Unrewarding since it contributes to laziness, it violates one’s
privacy, it shortens our lives, it invents dangerous things, and it consumes a
lot of energy. These are just some reasons why information technology is
unrewarding. So, we need to limit the usage of information technology to avoid
the unrewarding effects of this technology.
The evidence in this paper shows that technology has a positive effect on
student learning expectations and outcomes.
Evidence also shows that technology integration is becoming more common
in public and private schools.
Technology integration is shown to be effective in all age groups and is
also shown to be helpful for students with special learning needs.
On the other hand, Education has
become too flexible and fun. Technology for education is promoting individual
learning and online learning both teachers and students get benefits from
this new technology for
education. Before people had barrier for education but now because of
new technology those barrier are broken down because now students can learn
from anywhere and teachers can easily reach their students from anywhere. Students can use their Smartphone to learn
Technology can be used to restructure and redesign the classroom to produce an
environment that promotes the development of higher-order thinking skills (Kurt, 2010). However, modern technology does not bring good effect but also
bad effects as well. Too much use of technology has resulted in an increase in
waste products into the environment. People are losing their skills and creativity.
And people are become more and more dependent on things such as calculators and
spell check. Our brains do not have to calculate simple math problems or spell
words correctly when there are tools to help with those basic tasks. New
technology, reduce face to face communication wasting money, wasting time.
Social isolation is becoming common and more people are spending time on social
networking sites or gaming sites instead of promotion real life relationships.
As modern technology advances, people are forgetting how to interact with one
another. They are more comfortable with a phone instead, on having a face to
face conversation. When children use technology tools in elementary schools, a
sense of confidence and competence in their computer skills will grow as they
get older. Many children today have
access to a great deal of technology in their home; this access will result in
students being comfortable by using technology at school as well. When elementary school teachers use and model
different forms of technologies, they actively engage their students and create
a stimulating work environment (Kenney, 2011). Technology used in the classroom
helps students understand the material. For example some students are visual learners;
projection screen linked to computers can allow students to see their notes
instead of simply listening to a teacher deliver a lecture. Modern technology has made it easier for College
students even taking online courses. Many
colleges are offering as an alternative for students to physically attending
classes. So it is much easier to obtain educational information for classroom
or homework assignments. When technology
and appropriate teaching methods are combined, technology may increase the
academic achievement. Technology may enhance the students learning and may
assist most students in achieving their academic standards.
