Technology and its role in current education and future prospects

The medium of education is no longer the same, it is constantly changing; In the beginning, there used to be no books or notebooks, the students learned whatever the teacher taught in the class. Time passed, then paper and pen were invented and gradually this process increased and today technology is present in every house.

The process of gaining knowledge is termed as educating oneself. It is an endless process but it is mostly used for the students. Seemingly, there is no age for learning, but students and school going children are more associated with this term. When we take the help of technology for education, it becomes more interesting as well as convenient.

Technology which is known as technology in English is derived from a Greek word ‘teknologia’, where ‘tech’ is used for art, craft, skill etc and the word ‘logy’ is for interest in the subject . I can sum up technology as a platform that can act according to our needs. When we combine education with technology, you can imagine how easy it is for us.

Importance of Technology

Technology provides a digital platform and has become an important part of our lives nowadays. We use technology wherever we go. Schools are running with the new tag of smart classrooms and these smart classrooms are the best examples of technology.

The use of technology has made education easy as well as interesting. Usually, kids don’t like to go to school, but since these smart classes have started, they just like to be there. Apart from these smart classrooms, there are many other software available for educational purposes.

Those software keep us updated and help us to learn new things. Although there are still both positive and negative aspects of using technology, and we hope for the best. Various topics are available on youtube and there are many educational apps available. We can read from them and learn many new things everyday.

I really love reading from an app, and this one is designed in such a way that I quite like it. It attracts me and also encourages me to read and also makes education easy.
