Technology in the classroom

The most significant advantage that advances in technology have brought about is the promotion of independent learning in students. The internet has changed the way students access information necessary for their education. With proper training to identify the more reliable sources of information, most students will no longer depend on often outdated textbooks to glean the information they need. Online learning does have its disadvantages. While offering opportunities to students who cannot afford full-time training, distance learning deprives trainees of personal interaction with fellow students and educators. Educational research shows that those who enrol in online courses have higher chances of failing and dropping out of classes. One big advantage of exposing students to technology in the early years of schooling is that most jobs in the future will be digital and the sooner young people master digital skills, the easier it will be for them to secure meaningful jobs.
