Technology is a set of methods and tools used to solve problems. It includes both tangible tools such as utensils or machines and intangible ones like software.
Technology impacts the world in positive ways as it has made life easier and safer, and has increased productivity, but it also has negative impacts such as pollution or resource depletion, or can cause social harms such as technological unemployment. As such, there are many debates about how to use and manage technology effectively.
Education is a huge area where technology has an important role to play. It has changed the way students learn, introducing a variety of new teaching techniques and methods to help them become more engaged in learning.
Students have access to a wide range of resources on the internet, including scientific articles, journals, research papers, educational videos, tutorials/guidebooks, informational websites, online databases and blogs of educators/authors. This gives them a lot of information, which they can use to improve their studies and perform better in exams.
This has led to the rise of an exciting new field called EdTech which uses virtual learning sessions and the integration of AR and VR to create a more immersive learning experience. This not only makes the lessons more interesting for students but also helps them score good marks in exams.
Distraction in the classroom: This is a big problem for students in today’s society as most people are addicted to technology. They tend to get distracted while studying or doing their homework because they are constantly checking their mobile phones and laptops.
