     Technology in Education

For centuries, the education system has been structured around the pen-and-paper method. Without a doubt this pen-and-paper system has worked for generations and we've seen many succeed utilizing it. Many scientists, chemists, and inventors such as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison ,James Watson, etc invented and developed great innovations without much technology. But as time progresses, schools around the world are increasingly moving to provide students with their personal devices such a tablet, iPad, and even laptops.

A question that is often pondered on by many is how can education utilize technology without eliminating the old-fashion way of learning? In my opinion, technology has overtaken the pen-and-paper method by a distance. For example, my young sister does all her homework and even math problems on her iPad her school has provided for her. Growing up, I had never imagined that it would be possible for our modern students to complete their math homework using technology.

Many benefits of using technology in our modern education is that it allows teachers to develop more lessons granting students the ability to learn at their own pace. Empowering students to perform more complex and creative work, improving communications among students, teachers, and parents, helping students become technologically advanced. In rapidly developing world, technology is serving each and one of us well!
