Internet And Education: The Impact Of Modern Technology On Education

In this technology-driven world., we need technology to function and even prosper. Technology has taken over a major chunk of our lives and controls how society operates. Almost every industry uses technology, and we have reached a point where technology does everything we need it to do for us.

The Internet came into the scene back in the ’90s and only after that it was widely accessible for people in the early 2000s. And now cell phones put the internet in our pockets, making it even more accessible. With every passing day, technology keeps getting better and it keeps continuing on its upward trajectory and it won’t stop anytime soon.

The Internet, these days, is so common that we don’t even think about all the aspects of our lives that are being dominated by it. From enabling us to stay in contact with our family and friends to helping us make amazing recipes. Whenever we have a question, we instantly go online to find our answers. If we look around, we will see how it impacts everything. However, we don’t often think about how technology impacts the realm of education.

In this blog, we will talk about how technology has found its way into the classrooms and examination halls around the world, and how technology has supported and transformed education in countless ways.

How Technology Has Impacted Education?

Education is getting better and yet the foundational system is still intact. Teachers instruct and provide knowledge to a group of people, who go on to become important members of society. Some of them will become teachers themselves and the cycle continues. Books are still used and in fact, are a crucial educational tool. Students read essays, write them, participate in debates and projects, and do internships to gain experience which helps them make sense out of their world and navigate their life. While all of this is still very much a part of education and this model is used by many, exciting changes are coming up every now and then. So how exactly is technology impacting technology? here is a list of few ways

More Convenient:

In this era, you don’t have to be physically present in the class to learn. You don’t necessarily have to be with your teacher in the same location to understand some concepts. The internet allows greater accessibility and convenient communication over long distances. All you need to do is download a few apps, click a button and you can take your class wherever you are.

Greater Flexibility:

With better accessibility comes greater flexibility. With online classes, students do not have to worry about attending school at specified times which sometimes becomes hard to manage amidst family and work responsibilities. Course material is now only a click away, students have the freedom to complete their classwork whenever they can, as long as they submit it on time.

Growing Interactions between Students And Teachers.

Even though there are some negative aspects of online interactions between students and teachers, this fundamental shift is for the better.

For instance, students do not have to wait for a week to forward their queries and get help from their teachers. Class timings are no longer the only way they can ask questions and request information. Students can now email their professors, instant message them, or take advantage of texting, only if the teacher permits, to ask their professors questions anytime. They can send in their queries as soon as a question pops up in their minds. However, online interaction deprives students of nonverbal cues, which are important as they can improve the students’ ability to engage, relate and have meaningful conversations.

Conclusion:

The conclusion of all the discussion is that technology has overcome everything and we can not leave it behind for any reason in any field, even in education.
