Technology and its influence on education and future generations

Previously, when thinking about the technology in the classroom, we just thought about the phones that students use. Apart from the big problem which is a cause of distraction for students, it has almost no good effect.

However, after a period of transition to online learning due to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, using technology in teaching has many advantages. Teachers can see that technology and digital tools increase the interaction, make innovation, and support student learning.

That’s why technology has changed education, helping the learning process to be more effective while teachers and students do not need to come to class.

Technology helps to access to many resources

Through the internet, students can access the information 24 hours a day. Students can access everything from research materials and educational apps to interactive edutainment and open resources. However, students need instruction on how to find credible resources and direction on providing proper attribution when they use them. 

At PennSchool, students have access to online resources with over 10,000 different books, supporting their learning and research. Students can log into the school’s online library and search any topic they want.

Technology improves students’ engagement

Technology can help students by making learning more engaging and collaborative. Lessons are no longer on books, but are combined with supporting materials such as videos, images, etc. to help students gain knowledge effectively. Students can participate in group activities anywhere through apps such as Google Chat, Zoom…

Technology is used in all subjects. Through technology, simple math will be more interesting by incorporating challenges. Instead of learning by heart, students can improve their critical thinking through interactive classroom exercises or participating in group discussions supported by technology.

Technology expands classroom boundaries

Through technology, the class is no longer confined to the boundaries of four walls. Even if students can’t directly participate in an experiment, technology can assist them in understanding their lessons.

For example, acid must be used in the process of performing a chemical experiment. Instead of giving students the real experience and making unexpected dangers, teachers can contact a lab’s teacher who makes this and help students to observe. After that, teachers can ask relevant questions for them through its results. All observations are supported by technology that helps students absorb the lesson without any problems.

Technology supports students follow up others in the class

In a traditional class, students who are having a hard time learning new concepts will quickly fall behind their friends. However, with the after-school learning support programs such as Peer Tutors, Cross-Age Tutoring, Teacher Tutoring, struggling students can get timely supplemental knowledge. At this time, technology will be a tool to help teachers connect with students after class. Technology also provides additional resources during their tutoring.

At PennSchool, even before the pandemic, online learning became mandatory, teachers were always using a variety of technologies to prepare and present lessons. Through technology, teachers also easily assess students’ understanding, thereby making the necessary adjustments to help students achieve their learning goals. That is the reason why PennSchool always plans to develop and update the latest technologies in teaching, to help students to get more interesting experiences and to meet the needs of innovation in education.
