Whether we care to admit it or not, technology is everywhere; it leaves no stone unturned.
Every aspect of our lives involves some form of technology right down to how we work in school. Millennials – and older generations – have lived a life without the daily use of a Smartphone and a computer – having to relying on encyclopedias or the good ol’ fashion Dewey Decimal system. Today, we have phones that can look up content in an instant with answers to the late assignment done before class begins.
Many grade schools are implementing more technology like smart-boards, laptops and tablets; some have gotten to a point where they will give students laptops for the year to use. This may sound great and all, but what happens to students who are forced to use online resources to get homework done or even turn in their assignments?
Schools across the nation are using online platforms as a way to grade, collect work and track student progress. For teachers, it probably is very easy to grade and keep track of work, but what about the students? Internet access isn’t always available – and it costs money if you need it at home.
Ask yourself this: Should the plastic machines that hum in your hands have control over your educational future? Technology is everywhere, it is growing and all-consuming. The use of technology has been very helpful for students and their educators but the future for this pairing is one that allows for continuous review.
