Technology is a useful tool in our everyday life and is something that is growing at an electric rate. Chances are that you have some sort of technology within ten feet of you and that you have used in the last twenty four hours. Currently technology has found its way into schools across the world and with it comes the question of “should technology be used within schools?” Technology has a vast amount of problems that come with it. However, technology is allowing for a faster way to get information, it brings the allowance to keep a large amount of work into a smaller package, and a practical place to complete work.
Technology is an area that is constantly changing and integrating within the world that we live in today. This is the reason why it is important for technology to be within schools. With technology inside the schools students will be able to be in an environment where they are able to learn how technology works and be able to apply that knowledge into the real world that is already vastly integrated with technology. By using more technology inside the schools students will be able to use the knowledge of using things like phones and computers and be able to use them effectively in the real world without the learning time to understand the basics of how to use those devices.
Another reason for technology to be used in schools it the ability to find the information that you need to know in a moments notice. Technology has advanced far enough to where anyone can type a simple question and find out an answer in the matter of seconds. Although some may see this as a dependent thing. It is more of a chance to learn more about the topic and be able to advance to any other questions that someone might have in a moments notice. Being able to do this means learning more information in a more compact amount of time, allowing students to be able to move onto more topics within their subjects.
Finally, technology within schools should be used more often because of the ability for students to learn at their own pace. All across the educational system some students have struggled to keep on top of the lessons that have been given to them by their teachers. However, with technology in schools the student is able to look up things over the topic that they do not understand or even look up a lesson and completely learn it online. This helps whether a student is unable to make it to class or if a student has a failure to understand the lesson from their teachers lectures.
Technology should be within school despite the distraction or dependence that may arise from the appearance of more things within the learning environment of students. The benefits of our society moving forward, developing new ways for how students learn and do within their everyday life.
