Nowadays in the year 2018. technology is developing very fast and it is coming into many fields, including education and science. There still is a debate weather education helps the students and teachers and it increases the quality of education or it rather distracts the students and harm the educational system. We can’t deny that there really are some issues towards technology using in education, but there are lot of significant benefits. This article will discover the ways wow technology can improve the quality of education.
First of all, inclusion of technology increases the technical skills. Whether we like it or not, in the future technical knowledge will be very important for success in any field. Many researchers even claim that simple works will disappear soon, because they will be replaced by machines and robots, so future works mostly will be connected with computers and technology. That means such skills as typing, research and communication touch technological devices will be and urgent necessity for everyone.
Usage of technological devices also motivates the students to learn. Traditional books and papers are not interesting for student, but new interactive gadgets can make studying cool. Students are willing to try them out. Even boring math formulas can be fun if students are able to write them in technology gadgets not on the notebooks. For example, in the classrooms with interactive whiteboards, students are lot more willing to come in front of the classroom and do some tasks.
Technology also can help to study for those students with different types of information perception. Traditional teaching and learning methods are mostly based on reading and listening, so those students who better perceive the visual information, studying is a lot harder than others. Technology can provide many types of visual information that really helps to understand the studies. For example, if a student with visual perception reads a chapter in a book, he won’t remember the details, but if he sees the video with some comments, he will remember everything.
Technology improves the communication even in Sweden, so it can really help with group works. Group works are very important, because they teach students how to work in a team and how to split responsibilities. Unfortunately, group works can be quite challenging if there is no chance to communicate remotely. With technology it is possible not only talk to each other, but also see each other and send files, so it is possible to offer more group works.
And lastly, technology helps to organize and systemize the teaching and learning processes. For example, education platforms give a chance for teachers and students communicate both directly and indirectly. If teacher can share all the necessary information and teaching materials online, students can be provided with everything needed all the time. Also it excludes a chance when students claim they haven’t done the homework’s, because they didn’t know what to do.
Technology can improve the quality of education in many different arreas and different ways, so there is no reason why not to use it. Maybe there are some disadvantages as well, for example, students can use the technological devices for entertainment instead of studying, but it can be prevented by blocking entertaining websites and programs. Technology is coming into the education and it’s a good thing.
