So does technology help or hinder learners? The answer to this question is; it all depends how you use it. Handled poorly, its impact to education can be disastrous! But if handled well, it can facilitate learning. Just as we have found out, technology can be a powerful learning tool, and it can also be a powerful tool for cheating. It can gallantly open new doors and learning possibilities, while at the same time open some that are better off left closed; because some topics are not appropriate for some age groups. It can also be used to inform, and also to distort. If not utilized properly, the positive effects of technology become negative which continue to hinder student’s success.
