Technology in Education


With technology benefiting various fields, life has suddenly become a joyful journey for
everyone. In the simple forms, like electronic stoves, telephones displaying caller's ID
and automobiles the ride of life has become a pleasure. In the same way, the lives of
students have also taken a leap towards easiness.

When we talk about technology in education the first and foremost advancement is the
computer and internet. If a student has the Encyclopedia of Britannica or Microsoft's
Encarta Encyclopedia on his/her computer, he rarely finds himself in a library or even on
the internet. But for those who don't have these encyclopedias have the entire world of
internet information at their finger-tips.

Internet in its simplest form enables one to access emails; this too is a source of
information especially for those who are in contact with their teachers and need constant
aid.

Those who have joined Distant Learning Education programs need internet and the snail-mail
system. If the postage was unreliable or the money transfer system was unpredictable then
distant learning programs wouldn't be so famous and sought-after.



A normal school going 8th grader has luxuries enough. Assignments are doable no matter how
tough they are. If there is a presentation to go along with, then projectors come very
handy. Children also bring along their self made slide shows if the facilities are
favorable.

The field of education is vast. Be it the education in cosmetics, graphic designing,
journalism or multimedia, technology is playing a huge part. Take photography for
instance; new models of cameras keep emerging, the film has a variety of types and now
with the emergence of digital photography, many people have suddenly realized that they
want to make it their profession. For this, institutes are bringing in latest course
outlines, equipment for study, instructors are being brought-in and dark rooms are being
built.

Education was tough without technology. Parents were constantly worrying about their
children who were sent abroad to study. Now with technology in picture, long distance
calls have become much easier and considerably cheap. Nearly all students in an institute
carry cell-phones making the above mentioned problem of worrisome parents seem small. Even
though this involvement of mobile phone in the field of education is not that much, yet
it's so useful that just about everyone has this equipment.
