We are surrounded by technology, no matter where we go. The key is learning how to embrace it and use it to our advantage.
A field that can really benefit from the progress of technology is education. Advancing at a rapid pace, technology is becoming a vital element of the society we live in today and it could play an important role in the way that students learn and educators teach.
Here are 3 reasons for integrating technology in education:
1. Using technology as a learning tool.
In the digital age, learning never stops. Educational technology can improve not only student learning, but also teacher productivity. For instance, education related websites provide a variety of resources for educators, like lesson plans and learning techniques. Being able to collaborate with other teachers and connect with parents is a great advantage. The use of technology helps students benefit from extra support and help resources, reshaping the learning experience.
2. Interactive learning
Integrating technology in education can help improve the interaction between teachers and students. The teacher can engage a group of students through use of technology, has more time to focus on individual student needs and is able to give feedback faster. Interactive learning teaches students how to work successfully in groups and participate in the conversation. Technology made real time communication become possible.
3. Meaningful learning
As the world is constantly evolving, staying up-to-date with new technologies is imperative. Nowadays, students have access to an abundant amount of information. That makes it very important to know how to organize it, how to select valuable information, evaluate and structure it. They learn from thinking and reasoning. By learning to use technology, students are developing the skills, knowledge and experience that will prepare them for their future in society.
