Due to the birth of technology, everything has evolved and changed for the better, but sometimes for the bad. Needless to say, it is the education department that has made the major changes and developments. There are so many ways education has changed because of technology, and a few will be enumerated below.
Walter Morales Baton Rouge, a popular businessman, also noticed these changes mainly because his profession as a professor is also affected because of the changes.
Moving on, here are some of the ways education change because of enhancement of the technology:
- Online education was introduced
Other than going to school physically, students can also attend their classes online or virtually. This development has made education accessible to everyone. Students who do not have time to go to school physically can now pursue their education using the internet.
This is highly recommended to students who do not have a lot of time to spare going to school because of work, domestic responsibilities, etc. Because of online classes, students do not have any reason of not attending their classes.
- Notes can be noted in gadgets rather than in notebooks
Earlier, students used to bring notebooks to jot down notes, today, things have changed as instead of notebooks, they bring with them gadgets like tablets, mobile phones, and even laptops.
As long as important information is jotted down, notebook, tablet, mobile phones are okay to be used. Some prefer gadgets because they see it more convenient. Notebooks can be heavy but gadgets are lighter. Whichever you prefer, as long as it works and helps you jot down notes, it is okay.
- Students prefer the internet than libraries
Earlier, you could see students rushing to the libraries to research and study, now, there is no rushing as most studies go straight to their houses and search on the internet everything they need to know.
If before, you had to wait on queue before you could borrow a book or even get inside the library, now, you can come any time you want and borrow any book you need without the waiting part.
Both options have their own pros and cons, but it is what you prefer that matters the most. Some still prefer going to the libraries and studying in physical books, while there are some who enjoy the convenience of using the internet to study.
- Reports and case studies are submitted on email than in person
Students earlier needed to print a thick report to submit to their professors, now they can do it in just a click. The latter is actually more convenient and cheaper at the same time. But anyway, it is still the professor who can decide on whether they allow soft copy reports or they still prefer hard copies.
With the many changes in education because of technology, expect that there will be more to come as technology continuously evolves. Does technology really present advancement and benefits? Can be but unfortunately, not all the time.
