As technology continues to influence our everyday lives, we find that its relevance has actually extended beyond office spaces and science labs. Intentionally or unintentionally we use technology all the time and are totally dependent on it. Almost all our daily life activities are governed by technology. In fact, we rely on it so much now that it has become a habit.
And why not? If technology can bring more meaning and value to something then it is always a good idea to try it out. Every day we hear of the latest gizmos entering the market with bigger and better features and eventually they all become “must haves.” The best thing about technology is that it is rarely stagnant. Continuous innovations and improvements guarantee an easier life for users. It is true that the latest technology always comes at a price but then again, who wouldn\’t agree to pay for something that ends up saving a great deal of their time and energy!
Bringing technology into the field of education has been one of the greatest revolutions to take place in the field of education. Not only does it make learning more effective, but also helps in better application of the knowledge gained in real life.
A clear understanding of things can be gained only if a learner actually gets to see, hear, and feel what they are learning about. Technology can enable that. Not only can educators find themselves being able to explain the study material in a better and easy manner, but even the learners can grasp the concepts better and retain them for a longer period of time.
