In recent years, a debate has begun around technology and; its influence on students’ learning processes. It is an issue that has challenged teachers, especially those who have tried to measure the impact it can have. Some advocate for a more traditional education, far from any innovation, while some prefer technological progress and what it entails. So the question is, in what ways can technology improve education?
Technology has arrived to ease many of our day-to-day activities such as working, shopping, communicating, or simply consuming content from any platform. In many cases, the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages; since technology’s primary function is allowing easy access to the internet from any device. The advances in technology provide us with plenty of opportunities when used correctly, such as access to helpful tools that we can use in every aspect of our lives.
It is much more complicated to measure the impact that technology can have on students’ academic performance, but it is accurately known; that technology enhances and accelerates learning when used correctly and consciously. Teachers generally use technology to help students learn and acquire knowledge; in a personalized way. Now more than ever, some online programs and applications allow students to work on and improve on areas where they require independent reinforcement.
