Have you ever noticed how much we are surrounded by technology? If so, don’t you think that it has helped us come along way whether it’s making our lives easier to connect with people from a distance or to gather information in an easier way. There are a lot of things that we have that are still quite quaint and we compare them to the new technology we have today. Even some people are quite flabbergasted to see how much we have evolved as a society. So if technology is so important in our regular day lives then I believe that it should be just as important in schools don’t you agree?
The reason I believe it is important to have technology in our schools is because instead of carrying around heavy books on our backs and hurting ourselves with the heavy backpacks and excess items, we could just have a simple either iPad or even our mobile phones that we carry around. This’ll help us in a large way because we can simply do our assignments and everything on our mobile phones, laptops or iPads. We wouldn’t miss out on assignments because there will be no use to carrying around heavy books to our homes and back to school instead only on our pocket-sized phones or iPads and chromebooks. If everything is online there is a larger percentage of students being able to complete their homework or projects. Unlike with physical books, we all don’t have perfect memory so we tend to forget things, but with it being online rather than a physical copy we can access it almost anywhere.
Technology has greatly improved us since its first appearance. We can all agree that technology has helped us come a far way beyond our expectations. Technology is aiding our future because nowadays education isn’t just about memorizing facts and vocabulary words, it’s about solving complex problems and being to collaborate with others in the workforce. We can say certain things are easy but as we grow we also develop and discover new things because we learn and improve. This technology could potentially increase our knowledge by larger jump in our classes and academics. We have stuck with the same quaint ideas like a piece and paper but we are missing out on a new and improved way to absorb new advanced knowledge with these devices. Comparing to old news and no i’m not talking about history, that’s another story, but what I do mean is that why have old books that we have been reusing for years and that we teach to kids every day instead of from online where there’s no physical space required to uptake in that place instead, we can use one device that stores all; math, english, biology, chemistry, etc.
Nowadays technology is just about around every corner of every building, but before you turn that corner let me take a wild guess and say that you’re probably using your phone on the gps on your phone to find your way to some of your best stores. We use technology from knowing where a location is to learning how to cook, we’ve been using technology since we just learned to crawl so it’s only obvious that we apply those devices to our academics too. For example, we have Youtube and it is a very popular website and we use it for entertainment purposes, well since we use youtube so much how about a change of topic. We can also use youtube to learn about various things such as “what actually happened in the Civil War” but the difference in that is that we can get a whole lot more of details and description of what happened instead of a same-old book we have been using for a very long times. So yes I believe that technology can be obliged to be in schools. If we incorporate technology into our schools and classrooms then it’ll keep the students and staff accustomed to adjusting towards the future since most things are now digital. This’ll only prepare the adolescents to intake the knowledge of growth and development into their future of a digital economy.
In conclusion, we should include more tech for our future students to be better prepared for all the complexities of the government, advanced studies, and increasing knowledge to the new world and a new generation. Technology is a proper way to simplify things between students and teachers, there’ll be times where the teacher may lose the assignment but if it’s electronically then there’s only two options; they did the assignment or they didn’t. There won’t be an excuse for unprepared students that try to get one over the teacher. Not only will it help them academically but also give them a sense of freedom and responsibility towards caring for their own device so they can learn to take care of their things in the real life. With this technology, it may be a bit pricey but in the long run it’ll give us a huge jump into advancing in knowing the world better.
